She's off .... !

My little Pumpkin has left for college.  It has been an adjustment for both of us... and .... It's all good!

Before she left, we spent a lot of mother daughter time together.  One Sunday, we decided to visit this huge mall in Albany that has a "Build a Bear" workshop.  Have you ever been?  What a great idea.  As you build your bear, you come to a point where you must add a heart.  Well, Pumpkin and I traded hearts.  My bear has her heart and hers mine.   Isn't she the cutest?  Her name is Pumpkin!

As you can imagine, there hasn't been much quilting going on, but I did get a bit of sewing.  Yea, you read right, sewing NOT quilting.  I really do not like to sew but Pumpkin, the other one, needed a laundry bag.  So, I designed this little bag.

I'll admit, it wasn't that bad.  I even used the button whole feature on my Bernina.  Check it out!

The fabric line is Scrumptious by Bonnie & Camille.  I love that line!

I've been after DH for a while now to build me a quilt cabinet.  I was tired of having my quilts stacked here and there and every where.  After discussing some specifications, this is what he built for me.

Doors open!  Very roomy!

Notice that it is not filled, yet!  That's on my "to do" list today!  I best be getting off this computer and working on that!

Enjoy your day!  Cheers!

The Build a Bears are so big here and such a great idea. What a good idea to trade hearts!

I love that cabinet. I can't wait to see it filled.

That is such a cute bear, so hard to let them out of the nest, they do grow up fast.
Hard to think that my son is married with his own son now, I am not that old;)
Love the cabinet, he does beautiful work, now if i can get mine to build me a few things.
Off to NH tomorrow for a week of walks and waterfalls, hopefully this vacation will go smoothly, but i won't count on it, lol.

I love your quilt storage cabinet. Congrats on getting your daughter off to college. Mine is a senior this year and working on college applications--pretty much all of them she is applying to are on the east coast. That will be a big adjustment for us.

Your husband is so talented! That's a beautiful cabinet.

Love the bear! I don't think we have them out here (build-a-bears, not eddies LOL) but so sweet to trade hearts.

Well done S for that cabinet! Lucky you!! Now go fill it!!!
