End of summer?

DS and his girlfriend left for college this morning. I guess it is technically the end of summer for them - back to the books! Somehow though I think college is more like four years of continuous summer! Especially since they go to school down south - it stays relatively warm (compared to here!) all year. It's definitely a flip flop kinda life!
Speaking of which...(real subtle segway there, huh? LOL!) here is a pic of the quilt I made for DS's girlfriend last year when she was starting her freshman year of college. She is a big fan of flip flops so it seemed appropriate. This year I picked up a flip flop doormat for her new off campus apartment and she left today with a promise that I would make a cover for her body pillow from flip flop fabric and minkee and mail it to her next week. Unfortunately I couldn't get to quilt store until yesterday to get the minkee.

Am I the only one who gets annoyed by quilt stores not having night hours? or does your LQS have night hours? I'm curious. I know a lot of my quilting friends have full time jobs and yet none of the local quilt stores have hours conducive to working women. Yes, the most local shop is open on Thursday evening but the rest of the week they close at 5. Just curious.

Have a Pieceful Day!

Absolutely love that quilt!
You are not hte only one who wishes quilt stores had evening hours! Thursday night seems to be the only night they stay open past 5:00 or 6:00. Guess that's why so many online stores are flourishing.

I know what you mean. The closer they are to me, the fewer weekend and evening hours my LQSs seem to have!

Love the boats!
