The move is done.......and all is well. My Grandson and his Mom are settling in nicely to their new surroundings. School starts for them both on Monday. We went down to southern Indiana last Tuesday with a u-haul trailer. She had everything ready to load and we were back on the road by 2pm and back in Lafayette by 6pm. It was a long day for us all.
Now back to those roman shades. Here is what I have accomplished so far. I decided to add a layer of quilting to my shades. I figured a little more insulation couldn't hurt. I did not want to quilt every leaf so I just randomly picked about 5 leaf shapes out and did a little free motion quilting around them. I used a variegated thread. It was my first time doing the free motion thing so there was a bit of a learning curve. I know not all my stitches are perfect, but pretty fair for a first attempt.
I did get an update email on the baby squirrels. Looks like they had been without food for a couple of days. There is one male and two females. The male was the one that fell out of the nest. All are taking well to the bottle feeding and hopefully all of them will make it.....time will tell. At least I know I did all I could to help the little guys survive.
