Dani received her squares in the mail so now I can post a picture. The theme for the exchange was Celebrate Summer so I designed a square with a sand castle (what I always immediately think of when anyone mentions summer). I don’t know if it shows up well enough here, but I added a navy ship (in the distance) with a very pale gray because Dani is is the Navy.
I’ve done so much planning for this trip that I feel like I’ve been to Chicago twice already in the last week! This is a case of country mouse visiting the big city… I’ve mapped bus routes so we don’t get lost, and studied maps so we aren’t going back and forth every day. The two major cities I’ve had experience with (St. Louis and Albuquerque) don’t have real/practical public transit systems and when I’ve been to Chicago before we always had our car. This will be my first time using buses and trains (and feet!) to get around, so I’m looking forward to that experience.
My friend Marianne (of Midnight Stitching) just posted a pic of her newest release on her blog… I love it! Go have a look; bet you like it too ;)
Have a wonderful week, everyone!
