My boy is winging his way over to Germany right this minute for his junior year of college. The online plane tracker tells me he has crossed over Nova Scotia and is over the open sea! So, I'm settling in to
The university provides the students studio flats, and there are university cafes here and there where the they can eat at a discount. Two girls at his US college just returned from the spring semester in the same program - which ends in July, actually, and one has sold him her bike she left in a locker there, so he will have some manual transportation anyway.
We are very excited for him, but a bit sad to have him so far away! We'll miss a 21st birthday and the Christmas holidays, but he will come home on his spring break for a bit and then go back to finish up the year.
So, I am hoping for a Bonne Nuit and good sleep tonight after I hear from him. That's my segue into: Look at the embroidered pillow cover I made after seeing a similar one in the Pottery Barn catalog. This font is my favorite; it's so pretty and modernly classic. I'm putting it the college-savings and Germany student spending account shop at "the handmade fair."
My calicodaisy handmade design work is coming along very nicely with a lot of local and custom orders, and I'm getting ready for the fall/holiday bazaar time right now. I don't love all the craziness leading up to shows, but it's the time of year I meet new customers and catch up with returning ones.
