Days 'till the move = 0

The house is ours! The deal closed and we picked up our keys this afternoon! So, in the middle of moving and packing, here I am on the computer :) Because I missed you all! (we move on Wednesday -- tomorrow)

I even have some pictures. No, not of the house -- I was feeling un-photogenic today, and didn't even feel like taking pictures. Maybe tomorrow....

On the weekend I finished my pocket page in Tina's book. Tina actually provided the pocket page, and I embellished it a bit, and treated my tag as a page. It has a surprise on the back, so I'm not going to show the back. Tina's theme was "play". I like to play tea party -- so here's my tea party!

Time Flies!

I'm moving in 11 days!!! Time really does fly - our 90 days 'till closing seemed like such a long length of time, then poof! it's almost moving day!This spread is for Bonnie. Her theme was "Time Flies" and she wanted us to incorporate a #6, or 60 in it -- because she turned 60 in October. Bonnie also loves to travel, so I went with that theme too. Not because I like to drive in fast cars. Because if you know me, you'll know that I hate driving. I don't have a license, and I don't even like to be passenger. Grow where you're planted, my mom said........I also thought I'd be super organized and work ahead on some tip ins for another group, so I hypothesized on who my next 2 partners would be. Well, it turns out that the 2 spreads that I did aren't due to my partners until December 2008, and February 2009. Go figure...... I really love the work that I did, but I can't show it to you for another, um, 8 months or so.... LOL.....

Spring blossoms

It's finally spring here! The sun has been shining, the robins are back -- the snow is completely gone! Yay! I jumped in last minute to help with a flower panel swap on Creative chix..... They are each about 6 1/2 inches square. If you like to make this sort of thing -- check out the newest Quilting Arts Magazine --- I looked at it in a store yesterday -- it's a great issue (unfortunately I can't buy it until after my move-- but I will!).
I have finished all of the paper art that I'm doing before my move, so I'm packing all of my art supplies, but I still have a fabric book page to finish -- so I'll be sewing next weekend, and then packing. There won't be much on my blog. 16 days 'til the move.........

I made these pages for Jill. I chose the theme of "nature" from a list of suggested themes. This isn't what I originally planned, but I'm quite happy with the results. This is the first time that I've tried to stitch a tree -- and I think that it will happen more often.I've actually finished all of the art that needs to be sent before I move! I'm now trying to work ahead on May's art! 25 days until the move. Today I'm packing everything from drawers. I'm almost finished packing. I'm determined not to have a box that is labeled "box-o-junk" I have a few every move -- and, while they are amusing when you open them a few years later, I am REALLY trying to pare down. Plus, I told Lauren that I have thrown out all of the junk. She comes home from France in a week and a half. I'd better get throwing......
