Just in the nick of time!

sissy is college bound. we (me, the little princess, my mom and sissy) leave for utah tomorrow at 4 am and i am happy to announce that i just washed and dried sissy's quilt for her new home with a pillow case to match. awhile ago she fell in love with paula prass's new fabric line, summer soiree. i have to admit, it's fabulous! given that sissy is turning twenty in a couple weeks, we thought it would be appropriate to make that quilt. i like it because it shows off the fabric so well and it was QUICK!

it's been a while since i've blogged. this pregnancy has taken it's toll on me, but i think the morning sickness is finally coming to an end. i haven't thrown up in a few days. that's a good sign! there are so many posts that need to be posted, but they'll have to wait. i'm in a mad dash to get the house cleaned and the laundry done before the days end.

i hope you all are having a great summer! i look forward to blogging again and catching up with all of you (if your still there...)

The quilt is beautiful. We will be praying for you and your family as you take Sissy to college. I can remember how difficulty that day was for me and my family.
I am glad you are feeling better. To tell the truth I didn't even know you were expecting.
Have a great weekend.
