Rainy Sunday Sewing

Last year, on this long weekend, I drove the OnlyChild to university in a city 5 hours away. It was hard, remember?

This year, she decided to transfer to a school which is about a 10-minute walk from our house. Hurray!

Not only will it be nice to have her around for the year, but it will save us some money since we won't be paying residence fees.

In celebration of her new school year, I made her a back-to-university present: hedgehog pillowcases.


They're pictured here on the spare room bed. The OnlyChild needs to clean her room and change her sheets before she can make use of her new pillowcases. And, even then, her room is never in photo-op shape. I guess maybe there are some disadvantages to having her home... ;)

I remember when she left. I hope this year goes well for her. Messy room? I live with the king of messy but the alternative is living alone. At least you have a spare bed to take pictures on.

My daughter (age 19) got married last December and this summer moved about 3 hours away. I miss her terribly! Enjoy having your daughter closer this year! It is such a blessing! My daughter stayed home and went to community college the year before she married, and that time was such a blessing to both of us!
