EPP Tuesday & Some BIG Family News

 Finally back on track with this linky after a few hiccups the last two times!

Nothing particularly exciting from me... just continuing to tonk along with my Scrappy Quilt blocks...
I'll be adding two more blocks after these ones, then putting it away for a break.

Linky in the sidebar as usual... I hope you'll join in & share your EPP work!
*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*

Now to the BIG news in our family... Our Nest is officially beginning to empty... my DDY has finished her school psychology studies & has secured a one-year contract position in the Pilbara region of Western Australia... a town called Tom Price... about 1,525 kilometres from here!
Of course I am thrilled for her achievements, & this is a great result from all her hard work... BUT oh my heart😢 I know it's all part of life, but seriously wasn't she 4years old only a week ago?!
Good thing is, we'll see her every school holidays... she'll be coming back for seminars & workshops relating to her work.
*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*

I've been a busy little Elf in recent weeks... secret business... got all my sewing & stitching done for Chookyblue's Secret Santa Christmas Swap... it's completely finished; ready to wrap & post off to a far away land!

Thanks for popping by & have a great Tuesday!

Loving your quilt progress. I feel for you.....how dare they grow up lol! Big congrats to your clever girl xx

Your hexie quilt is coming together so nicely and looks beautiful. Yes, time does fly and we realise just how much when our children begin to shape their own lives. It is bitter sweet but you will expand your own life as you adjust. Sadly, no EPP from me again.

It's a hard time seeing them move away... I have just finished my SSCS7 is done too. Look at those Hexies grow.

Justine said...

Wow that is a distance...but just think how well you have raised a young woman confident enough to travel and fulfil her dreams. Love your hexies and really jealous of your Christmas progress. I haven't started yet!

tubakk said...

Your hexies are lovely. I have a project like that too, but it's in a plastic bag. I'll dig it out when my La Passion is finished.

Brigitte said...

Congratulations to your daughter on her new position. But it's far away ... good to know that she will come back home from time to time.
Nice progress on your scrappy quilt.

Joy from Days Filled With Joy said...

Your hexies are growing and so pretty.. oh my, so far away from you, but great that she has a job - I have actually heard of Tom Price.. but don't know where it is.. I'm off to google! They do grow up waaaaay too quickly!!! xx

Janice said...

Wow! Won’t Tom Price be an adventure for DDY. You will just have to find some time to take a run up there to see where she will be hiding, but maybe wait till the cooler weather.

elliek said...

Loving the hexies. I am with Michelle, why do they have to grow up? I have a daughter in Qld which is too far away. At least we can visit ....only 2 hours on a plane. Congrats to your daughter.
