Little Bouquet Top Finished

I finished all the flowers for the Little Bouquet quilt.  Sorry for the dark photo, but at least you get the idea.  Somehow while we were at the lake, my camera changed settings so that all my pictures are long and skinny.  I'm sure there's a technical term for that, but I don't know what it is.  Daughter 1 noticed it and said she'd fix it.  I forgot all about it until today when I saw that this photo was, yes, long and skinny.  I'll remind her tonight.  (Or she'll read my blog.)

Yesterday we moved Daughter 1 back to college.  Actually we moved all her stuff, but she's still at home.  She was really scheduled to move this next weekend, but hubby and I can't physically move two kids to two schools in two different states in the same weekend.  So she'll stay home with us until Friday.  Then we'll leave Sunday for South Carolina, and move Daughter 2 on that Monday, the 17th.

This is our last tough moving year, since Daughter 1 will be graduating in the spring.  Whether she gets a job or goes to graduate school, she'll be in an apartment for a while.

Back to the subject of quilting!  I've been working on a new project.  I do make commission quilts occasionally, but they don't come along very often.  A few weeks ago, within a couple of days I was hired to make not one, not two, not even three, but FOUR quilts!  Whoa, baby!

Three are for the same person, and are all t-shirt quilts.  The fourth is a very special quilt to honor someone's dearly departed (and beloved) dog.  I already have been given the t-shirts for two of the quilts and have been working on fusing them to a stabilizer.

You know what all this means??? Right about the time that I allow myself to actually buy fabric and other quilty stuff, I'll have some money to use!  Woot!  Yay!  Hurray!
