She is moving on. It is bittersweet, but necessary. She graduated and is pursuing a dream. She is moving to California and will eventually look for a nursing job at a hospital in a pediatrics or neonatal intensive care unit. She will be a wonderful nurse.
Here is a photo of the quilt that I made for her. I hope that she takes it with her to California and curls up under it after a hard day at the hospital - or looks at it and fondly remembers the girls.
The design is based on the BTRS lap quilt. She likes muted colors so I went with an aqua/blue/tan floral theme for the front. The back is done in a wave print. Something that reminded me of the California coast. Can't you just hear the waves rolling up on the beach right now?
In case you are wondering, her name isn't Mimi. But her name does start with an "M." When the twins were first learning to talk that is what they called her - failing to pronounce her full name with their mouths full of food and drool. The nickname stuck.
