Yesterday we celebrated her 24th Birthday, today we are driving her 4.5 hours away to start her grad school program at OU in Athens, OH!
She is one who feels stress deeply, so I pray this next phase of her life, BioMedical Engineering Grad School, will not weigh too heavy on her. Knowing her, she will strive for perfect marks and stress over every aspect of her learning.
She landed in a wonderful program at Ohio University in Athens, but we are sad it’s far away. At least there are quilt shops around her new area. Ones I plan to visit when go see her throughout the next 2 years. 2 years. Sigh. With few breaks. I guess preparing us for the possibility of not being in the same city when she starts her career.
After the Jewelry Case you would think I would not make more work for myself. But I promised her a wallet. I offered to do a similar NCW style with the Diva Wallet hardware. I reduced the pattern to 90% and made mods to the other pieces. And then proceeded to rip and resew several times before I completed the case.
It’s done, and it’s too small!!! Once she packs everything in it it will not close!! Argh! I should have known it wasn’t going to work. But I kept pressing on. Oh well, looks like I have a new wallet for times when I don’t need all my cards or a lot of stuff. I bought fabric for the next one and will mail it to her after the move. I will attempt a NCW hack again with no reduction of the pattern.
