In 2010, she moved to Florida for an internship and planned on staying there. So when she got her apartment, we hauled all her things down there. What a trip that was. Two years later she moved back to Missouri, another exhausting trip.

This year, we only had to move her across town and away from the college crowds. Though this move was tiring, it was not as bad as traveling thousands of miles from one state to another, and then having to unload everything.
I made her a table runner for a housewarming gift for her new apartment. She still would like to move back to Florida (that will come one day, I'm sure of it), so she wanted something that had a beach look to it. I stood in fabric stores taking pictures of fabrics, sending them to her in a text message, and she would text back 'no', she finally picked these fabrics:

I have also decided to 'sign' all my projects with the little dogs and my initials that my new machine makes.
I am currently working on two projects right now. I can't tell who they are for or what I am making, but here is the fabric I am using.
