All pinned up with no place to go
<Here’s a sneak peak at my nearly complete Jacob’s Ladder quilt. I have it basted and ready to quilt. You may recognize my fussy-cut floral quilt on the bottom, also ready to quilt. I laid them both out at once and pinned them all up. My fingers are very sore!
These quilts are going to be packed away with the rest of my sewing supplies. Spencer’s work did not approve his transfer to the city where I got a job so we found a halfway-point apartment. We will each have 36 miles to commute, which is not so bad. We hope to be moved in two weeks!
Some people are really surprised that I will commute 40 minutes one way, but it is not a big deal where I am from. Most people where I grew up commute at least 30 minutes to the nearest big town. Many professionals like nurses and engineers commute 1 1/2 hours to the nearest big cities: Waterloo, Iowa or Rochester, Minnesota. It is not the ideal long term situation for me but it works well for now.
Now that my sewing is getting packed away I will be attacking my plastic collection. I think Spencer will be more understanding of packing quilts than packing a full recycling bin.
