Our World Traveler
On Sunday we spent the day in Chicago with our oldest son, Justin. He's leaving this week to live in Macedonia for nine months. (Where the heck is Macedonia? I had to look it up - it's north of Greece). His girlfriend will be teaching there and Justin will put the finishing touches on his dissertation, when he's not sightseeing. He will come home in December to defend it and spend Christmas with us. (Yeah!) Then graduation in June. He has already been to Turkey and Greece this summer. He's really getting around!
Yesterday I made up this simple little quilt and started sewing on some felt leaves that I die cut using Papertrey Ink dies. I am going to embroider the leaf veins with several strands of floss so they stand out.
I've had that leaf pattern fabric for years. So glad I finally found a use for it!
