A Big Move

My daughter, Kim, is moving to Pennsylvania! She will attend the University of Pittsburgh in the fall. She works for Barnes and Noble Bookstore and requested a transfer to the area. Well, don't you know that they want her there NOW! She and I have just gotten back from an exploratory trip where we found a lovely apartment for her and she met her new boss. The apartment will be available on May 8th. We hurried home and have begun to sort and pack. She'll be working here right up until moving day, so we are using the odd hour to get everything ready to go. I'm in charge of her kitchen stuff!! We have plenty of extras, so I should be able to outfit her well.

So. I mention this to explain why the little bears dancing in my head will be born a little later than I had planned. I'm taking a little bag of sewing along wherever I go so hope to have some ready as soon as the dust settles. I'll try to have some sneak peaks soon!
We came home to find the beautiful clematis you see blooming on our front porch. I planted it a few years ago and it never fails to bring joy each Spring!

hi Donna,
I wish your daughter well!
And my clematis just had it's first bloom, exact same color!

Hug, Darlene

Thanks, Darlene! I know Kim will enjoy her new home. We'll miss her but at least there are cell phones and emails!
Well, great minds think alike - and choose the same flowers! I love to see it each Spring, don't you?
Hugs, Donna
