We just got back from taking the girls to college. Last year Kelly was accepted to and decided to attend the same university that Jill attends ... that makes move-in/move-out and parents' weekend visits easier for us. They're happy to be together and I think it will be good for both of them. The only little flat side to this lovely situation is that they are 600 miles from home! I'm already counting down the weeks (eight!) until they are home for Fall break ... is that bad?! As we were leaving, I think I was clutching on them just a little too hard ... they both were kinda gasping for air! I know, I know ... too much!
Anyway, they are both excited to get their year started. Jill is beginning her junior year studying meteorology and Kelly is beginning her freshman year in nursing. Classes started Monday ... so far so good! And with cell phones, text messages, e-mail, skype ... it's easy to stay in touch just about every day. But our home sure is quiet without our sweet girls!
Not much stitching being done, although I did pull CHS's "Frederick" from my WIP basket to take on the road with me. Didn't get too much stitching done in between move-in's, but since we've been back home I've decided to just keep stitching on him until he is finished ... I'm too close to take the chance of having him get lost in the WIP basket again! And besides, I haven't had a finish in a good while ... I need to see something completed!
Here's how "Frederick" is looking ...
Just the border to finish, and then "Frederick" and his "Frederika" will be together again.
Summer seems to be winding down. I'm always sad to see her go! The older I get, the less I look forward to old man Winter blowing in! But before all that, I'm hoping we have a glorious Fall. Western Pennsylvania can indeed put on a lovely Autumn show!
Hope everyone is well. May God protect those in the path of Hurricane Issac and his aftermath.
