Well, it has been busy busy busy here lately- which is good, because I am trying to keep my mind off of the fact that youngest daughter has been away at college for almost 2 weeks now. She is doing well, making new friends and she likes her classes. Here is a photo of daughter the day she moved into her dorm:
Friday night, we took oldest daughter and her husband out to dinner to celebrate her birthday, then we went back to their apartment to watch a movie (The Great Gatsby with Leo DiCaprio- Have you seen it? Not my favorite movie, but I thought it was pretty good.)
Saturday my husband and I went for a hike at a nearby park (Ridley State Park in Pennsylvania.) Over the last several months, we have enjoyed finding new places to explore on Saturday mornings. We didn’t realize that we had so many beautiful parks quite near to where we live! And when I say hike- it is really very leisurely- we are not athletes by any stretch of the imagination! But we enjoy the peace and quiet and beautiful scenery. Afterwards we go out to breakfast or lunch (depending on what time we get done), then do some errands. It is becoming a nice Saturday morning routine that we look forward to, especially now that the weather is turning cooler.
Sunday, we celebrated daughter’s birthday again at a family party at their apartment.
This week I am working furiously to get this quilt done- I have a deadline hanging over my head and I hope I can get it done in time! This is a special project that a bunch of Henry Glass designers are working on together, I’ll give you more details later:
And this is super cool- a few months ago, I was contacted by the editor of Couch, a very popular German Women’s & Fashion magazine. They wanted to feature one of my craft projects! You can find my Wooden Ruler Desk Caddy on my website here.
I am also desperately trying to get my Fall e-magazine done. Oh I’m trying so hard to get it out on October1!!!!!! I am adding a new feature that I think you will enjoy- I will be doing a feature/interview with a top designer, who also happens to be one of my favorite people. Maybe this photo will give you a hint of who it is:
So that’s what is going on in my world this week! I hope you are having a good week so far- what are you up to??
