"Moving" Right Along

"Moving" right along on my Flutterby quilt. 
Layed the top out on the backing and batting
and crawled around on the floor
pin basting yesterday!
(oh my aching body)

And "moving" right along elsewhere in my life.
Yes, I mean "moving".
THAT was my original goal for the summer,
when the wrist & other health issues
stalled my plans.

Good news is, I don't need surgery for the carpal tunnel,
my wrists are healing nicely
and the other issues are under control

So, after much contemplation, I am back to my plan.
I've wanted to move back up north (out of California)
 for a very long time.

In June, I resigned my teaching position at the high school
and have since taken a job teaching online.

Now I can teach from home...where ever I decide home is.

So, Oregon, here I come.
My move date is still a month away.
But I'm packing, sorting & cleaning out storage units.

I'll miss my friends & family here,
but I do look forward to their visits
after I'm settled, and I look
forward to seeing more of my sons
who live there.

And I also look forward to getting
back into a routine of quilting and blogging.
I've missed reading your blogs and sharing in your
quilting adventures.  I especially miss One Flower Wednesdays
and hope to get back to my GFG soon!

In the meantime, I'm going to finish Flutterby
so I can send it on it's way.

Flutterby Border

Well, I've been busy.
Finished sewing all the rows together and decided on a pink border.
I'm happy with the border color choice
because I know the person this will be
going to likes PINK.

It's such a menagerie of flowers and butterflies,
although not my usual style,
looks so summery and happy
that I'm really pleased with it.

Remember, those 3D butterflies:

And it's almost ready to "fly".
But...I could use your help
deciding which of these three bindings
to go with (below):
What do you think?
Please feel free to leave me a comment
with your choice!
Thanks  ; )
