BUT - this is just one of 4. I wonder if I could get by with giving a mini-quilt. I think the other 3 will go together ok - positive thinking. I have a quilter who has graciously agreed to get it done for me by the 23rd if I can have it to her by the 18th. That includes having the backing and batting pressed and ready. Oh, and this thing has borders too. Forgot about that. I usually love to do bindings, but I'm going to let her do them this time and put a hanging sleeve on the back. I've even had Mama clipping threads on the back for me. I guess I'll take a stack to Mobile and clip away this weekend.
2. Worked. The third of my four 10-hour days. They get long, but it will be worth it to be off 3 whole days!
3. Enjoyed storms all day. Nothing exciting but lots of rain and a little lightning. I'm hearing the thunder from the next round coming.
4. Tried to talk to Emily this morning. She's a little spacey from all the studying and all the celebrating last night. Sadly, Ryan's grandmother died yesterday, his Dad's mother. It wasn't unexpected but sad nevertheless.
Tomorrow will be filled with work and appointments and packing and who knows what else. Unfortunately probably not much quilting. I'm leaving early on Friday and hope to spend some time with Emily before Mike and Elise get there. I think all of us are looking forward to just relaxing and celebrating the end of school and not thinking about the wedding - until maybe Sunday.
