This weekend became a busy weekend for me and Mom and it had nothing to do with quilting. We had to search for a new apartment for her. She moved to Richmond five and a half years ago and she's been happy in her city apartment for seniors. It's a very old building but the property was lovely and the building was well maintained. That is until the property was sold to out of state investors and it's now being turned into a dump that will be used to take advantage of Medicare largess without any care for the residents comfort and safety. It's really sad because, while old, it was a nice place to live and she has friends there. Although many of those friends are moving out. They are pushing residents to sign new leases and commit to another year. She decided that it was time to go so we started apartment hunting.
We found a place she likes and, Saturday (on her birthday) she submitted the application and will, hopefully, sign a lease later this week. If all goes to plan, in September she will be in a nicer neighborhood and also closer to me and my cousin. I'm pretty excited and so is Chris and all of my brothers.
All that to say that I didn't get any sewing or quilting done this weekend.
What I intended to do this weekend was get one of these quilts loaded and quilted. I also wanted to get labels and hanging rods for the quilts that will be in the September exhibit. I can work on all of these things Tuesday and Wednesday. There's no huge hurry. If the quilts don't get quilted until September it's no problem. At some point I also have to start packing for vacation but I have that process down to a science. Usually one day for clothes and gear and one day for food and I'm ready.
Today we are off to do more apartment business so my creative expectations for the day are low. Tomorrow offer some hope!
