We moved Will into the dorms at OC on Tuesday.
He didn’t have nearly the amount of stuff that I remember taking to school.
We didn’t move him far, but it brought back a lot of memories of my mom bringing me to OC. She took me 850 miles from home and I only knew about 3 other students. At the time my mom wasn’t very impressed with the campus.
I also thought a lot about a mother and a father that went back to China and left their daughter Hannah to live with our family this year.
I’m glad OC is home.
This is the latest quilt I made. I inherited it partially cut out and a few blocks sewn together. I made it to wide so I couldn’t get it on my quilt frame. My friend Jamey quilted it for me.
Jemma made what was supposed to be a cover for her ipad mini. It came out a little small for her ipad, but she decided she could use it for a pencil case. She’s going to try and make another ipad cover soon.
We scraped the ceiling and painted the ceiling, and walls in Jemma’s bedroom a couple weeks ago.
Her friend Hallie helped to decorate. I took them to two different thrift stores, so they could look for things they could repurpose. A few things they got at Hobby Lobby on clearance.
The round circle with a “J”, they got at the thrift store. They painted the J on it. They also repainted a couple of picture frames. A couple of them we already had, one they got at the thrift store. One of the frames they made into a chalk board.
