My “Short Story”


Hi, there,

just a brief post, I finished sewing “Short Story”, the Plan C for this month’s Schnibbles.

I used Charms Packs again, “Botany” from Moda.



A closer look:


I’ve just received the new Marie Claire and a book with the mail, I’ll show you in my next post.

DS1 left home this morning. Boxes with all his things, books, his bike, his computer.

I still have tears in my eyes.

Pretty colors and fabrics. Although your son is off on his own you'll enjoy those calls he makes to check in.

Your little quilt is pretty and again so accurately made. Wipe your tears and have some tea. There is so much less laundry and ironing now ;-)

Beautiful quilt!
It is amazing. I have been reading blogs from the northern hemisphere and there is big number of mothers feeling just like you because their children have just left for college. You should all form an empty-nest-quilter mothers support group! Glad to know the planet is balanced by the southern hemisphere´s mothers who are pulling their hair out with teen agers still at home! Haha!

Love your Short Story, which will have been quite a trip.
Good luck with this new beginning for your son, but definitely also for you!

Hugs Suzie,
it is a new start for him and you. What about making him a special quilt so he has a little of home with him? They are so useful to wrap up in when sitting in front of a computer writing essays.

Lovely block.

Your Short Story turned out great. I used Botany too but made Plan C!
