Quilt not Finished, Still Celebrating

I’ve been quilting my scrappy Dresden quilt.  I was hoping to have it finished to share today and whoop it up with Sarah. But I didn’t quite make it.  Just a little more to do.  So next week for sure.

 I’m still celebrating though.  Monday was the last day for me to drive Jr. High carpool.  After 12 years of driving kids to Jr. high. (That’s what happens when you space your kids out like I did.  One finishes and the next starts four kids three years each.  Yep it’s crazy fun here.)  But it’s the end of an era.  Anna graduated from Jr. high and I no longer need a big car to haul kids.  So we are selling the Suburban and I got this fun Hyundai.  

I love it.  Great gas mileage, easy to park.  I took grandma to lunch yesterday and she loved it.  So much easier for her to get in and out of.  So Whoop, Whoop!  Big happy dance!  Yeah I finally finished Jr. high carpool!

    You can still link up and do some whooping – show off that cute Hyundai! And I would have been sorry to miss even a glimpse of that beautiful dresden plate quilt!!

    Congrats on helping those birds fly on to high school! Enjoy the new wheels 🙂
    Your Dresden is looking gorgeous! Very inspiring!

    I love this quilt so much! Every time I see it I want to run to my sewing room and get busy. Those bright dresdens on the blue background. Peaceful and happy all at once.
    I love my Hyundai. Well I used to but at 6'5" it was our only vehicle that my son could comfortably and safely drive. I bought used vw beetle. It's a stick shift and very tiny. No chance of having to pass it down to one of the kids!

    That peek at the Dresdens just tantalizes me, so bright and happy! Congratulations on leaving the carpool behind and stepping up to a car that's just right for you!

    Oh that Dresden quilt is so pretty Emily! Such bright and happy colors.
    We had school buses here. My kids are all adults now, but when I hear the school bus come round in the afternoons, I still feel that leap of excitement as if they will be coming in the door.

    Has to be a bittersweet celebration for you. I remember the day it hit me that my kids didn't need me to drive them anymore. The days of putting them in car seats, seat belts, watching them every second flew by in the blink of an eye. Getting a smaller car is a smart move, but it must feel strange with no one in the back.
