That was quite the marathon of apartment hunting. Mom and I started looking at apartments on Friday (21st), celebrated her birthday Saturday and got a lease signed yesterday - 6 days total. She moves in September 7th. She could move earlier but I won't be here so we will wait until Chris and I return from Maine. I think she's happy to have a month to get her things organized and packed. I know she will start moving some things herself during the month and my brother is coming to help one weekend. By the time we get to the 7th she will be all set for the movers.
I don't know if you've shopped for apartments lately but there isn't a lot of inventory out there. We were really lucky to find a one bedroom with a den (sewing room). Those apartments are like unicorns. Apartments are also VERY expensive now., just like everything else I suppose. Her new neighborhood is very safe and very diverse with lots of families. I think she's going to love it there once she starts meeting some of the neighbors.
On the craft front, not much has happened. I did get 2 veterans quilts loaded and basted. I hope to start quilting then this evening. This afternoon I have my knit and crochet group meeting and it will be nice to just sit and stitch for a few hours.

I'm Vicki Welsh and I've been making things as long as I can remember. I used to be a garment maker but transitioned to quilts about 20 years ago. Currently I'm into fabric dyeing, quilting, Zentangle, fabric postcards, fused glass and mosaic. I document my adventures here.
