The Big Move And Someone Is Turning One!

Yep, our girl is all moved. It was three really jam packed days....made tons easier by how organized she had everything. Friday was loading up the truck with the packed boxes and furniture, and Saturday driving the truck out to her new place. Leaving at 8:00 a.m. Saturday it was in the low 90's......arriving 2 1/2 hours later at her new place it was in the low 70's...... SWEET.....I see some new hoodies in her future. No more 100 degree plus temps for her to work in. Saturday Baby Polka Dot and his mom and dad were there to help, along with her friend Kerriann and her fiance. Unloading was pretty quick. Such a friendly apartment complex, with some of her new neighbors stopping by to introduce themselves. We spent the rest of Saturday unpacking, putting in new shelf paper and helping her to get organized. Her kitty DC is a little perplexed by the move, but I know she is just going to love it.

A big GIANT smoochy happy birthday to our Baby Polka Dot who turns one year old tomorrow....the time has gone so fast and we love you bunches and bunches. Sunday there is a family birthday party happening....pictures to follow!!!

Quilting....nada, zip, nope, none!!!! I have my next installment for the basket BOM just waiting to be put together, and a bit of quilty reading to do. Once again my MOJO is taking a break as well as a bit of blogger block. My friend Beth emailed me today to let me know I hadn't updated my blog in a week so that spurred me on to do a post....thanks Beth for the nudge :-)

Here's my project that I plan to work on for the Charming Girls Quilt Club. Bad picture but really cute quilt with great fabrics...and RICK RACK!!!!!!
OK, I'm outta here with not so much new stuff, but I have lots rolling around in my head.....if only you could see inside it is quite amazing !!!! Hoping for some production happening soon. Happy August everyone.

I think when the temp is in the low 90's, quilting mojo just goes out the window. You'll be back at it soon.

Happy Birthday to the 1 year old!

I'm so glad Katie is moved in and ready for her new life!
I can't wait to see the new quilt you're making - that pattern is just too cute.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MR. LUKE!!!! I bet it was a party and a half, wasn't it?
Your comment about what's happening in your head makes me laugh. My head's the same way - too many projects goin' on in there! I gotta let some of them out! LOL

HAPPY! HAPPY! Birthday little Luke (aka Little Polka Dot) I just can't believe that he's a year old already. You have been a very busy girl!

That is one cute little picture of Mr. Luke. Soon we wont be able to call him baby Luke anymore. Happy birthday to you Luke!!! Tell grammy to squeeze your little cheeks for me. Ok not too hard.
I'm glad Katies' move went well and she's settling in nicely. Good to hear of nice neighbors too.

Kris said...

I can't believe he is one already!!! Isn't it grand?
Where did daughter move to?

Life appears to be treating you well Cheryl. :-) I can't hardly believe it's been a whole year already since that sweet baby boy entered your world. Amazing...

Baby Polk A Dot is going to be one!!! How fun is that! We had our one of our newest granddaughters b/day #2 at the end of July and now her baby bro is going to be one next week! These are the first birthdays we have gotten to have with them in the family... (our DD and her hubby got them last Fall and were able to adopt them this past May!) Looks like you've been plenty busy... take care.
