Random: time to time
















It has been a wonderful week, even it is Tuesday! It is sunny and warm in ND, but I am in my fall clothes, instead of summer clothes. When the windows are up and the breeze comes in the room is still a little cool for me. Summer clothes is a little too early for me. Unlike me, S is in summer shirt and shorts. She is HOT!

The month of May has been difficult for grocery shopping, since our departure day is approaching us very soon. We ran out of few ingredients already and  I have been alike Arrietty whom borrowing ingredients from friends more like, sugar, coffee, and some spices for cooking. It has been crazy to ask for these, but our friends are just so kind to share their ingredients with us and having us over for dinners to get by till we move. 

S' couch is gone, so we moved all the storage boxes out and the { kitchen sink quilt} is on my chair now. It makes the chair cozy and comfortable to sit on. We actually second the idea of selling the couch, but we both think it is too big to move and put in the storage. It was actually our very first own couch, so we were attached to it more!

Sun is out and about so much earlier now and I love S asked  me what are you making when she walk in the sewing room.  This morning, I spent a good part of the time piecing the new tote that I plan to take for our trip.  For S, I used the same block pattern, but will make a smallish messenger bag for her and her mini travel fund.  What have you been busy sewing lately? Hope some gardening for you as well! We are hoping some gardening this summer as well!
 
P.S. I have a proposal for you tomorrow...

    1. Thank you! Farewell parties are hard for us! We try to say, thank you, how about just ice cream and coffee. The quilting part is finished from last night today is on to assembling, but a trip to the store is needed! xc

  4. Your little triangle/squares are so pretty - how do you make them, Chase? It's probably very simple and elementary, but I would like to try some. You must be very busy packing everything up. I always slow down when I get to your blog in my reader and click on your post so I don't miss anything! xo

    1. Thank you! Likely, you'll probably see me around 6a.m. with an empty cup and looking never wake up face and asked for some coffee~ Yes! Arriety is a sad story and I cried at the end. KiKi's deliver service is a good one! Even though, I didn't like the part that her magic was gone. :)

  10. As you read this introduction with an open mind when
    suggestions are made to help you out in this issue; there lots of websites
    contain this information. It makes me really angry that this is still going on, check out Lotto Alert.
