Settling in.....

Hard to believe that it was one month ago that I arrived here in IN...and I'm now finishing my third week of grad school. Where does the time go? Am finally starting to feel a little more settled in, altho to look at the disaster that is still present here in my apt you might wonder about that. Have been going thru everything and sorting stuff to go out as I go thru it. Some of my stuff will remain boxed up while here because I just don't need it out, but don't want to or can't get rid of it at this point in time. However, I have been sorting out oodles of stuff....such as at least 1/3 of the kitchen stuff that I moved out here...........

And as I was unpacking some of my quilting stuff, I found a couple of pp'd patterns that I'd printed off yrs ago and had never made up. Now seemed the perfect time to start working making the blocks because I'd also found a back of itty-bitty batik scraps that I was saving for the 'perfect' project that are perfect for the blocks. =) Will be drawing up additional block patterns to go with the two that I had printed, and once I have worked through all of the scraps will figure out how I'm going to set them. Pics of the two blocks, including a closeup of one of them with my thumb drive in the picture to give perspective to how small the batik pieces really are, are below.

1. A safe move out here

2. A smooth transition back to school

So happy to hear YOU sounding happy again! That in itself is a blessing.

Those little batik scraps are making up beautifully.
