Today is for finishing a wallet, a wallet redo for BioGirl since I made the 1st one too small! And what better fabric to use than a combo I picked up on Friday! It did not marinate for long in the stash! I laid out the pattern piece to take advantage of the neat border design.
And then used my mad planning skills to use up as much of the 3 FQ’s as I could without having to seam pieces or pull from other stash and try to match. I succeeded! So what the pocket linings won’t match each other? I don’t care, at all, very much, and I don’t think BioG will either, at least very much. LOL!
We got her all moved in on Saturday and then the time to leave came and I cried. Of course I did. I kept planning to take all kinds of photos and I failed. But before we left we got these shots on her balcony. She is very keen to discover the nature and parks around the area, there are a ton of them. And it’s all just so beautiful.
I talked to her Sunday morning, she was doing fine, was grocery shopping. I know she will do well, it’s just hard to leave your kid, OK-24 year old adult offspring, 4.5 hours away! Her beau asked as we left if it was different this time, and I said yes! For undergrad we left her 2.5 hours away in a city where family lived. She had someone close. Her closet relative is in Pittsburgh, 3 hours away, the closest friend is in Dayton, OH, 2 hours away. But we are so far away! At least in my worried mother’s mind.
