This was just before she moved out of our house in her sophomore year in college. We pleaded with her not to go. We had a big house. She had a beautiful room. She was our only child and we did not want to see her go. Why should she move on and burden herself with the extra costs during college? But all of our pleading was to no avail. She thought it was her time to move on. The house seemed so empty without her. I would have loved to have her with us until she graduated from college.

Since Jacqui was studying to work in architecture, I thought she would need a professional wardrobe, and I had just read a book about a complete wardrobe out of 12 pieces of clothing from coordinating fabric. I made her six of the pieces and gave them to her for Christmas. They are the turquoise pieces on the end of the sofa. I had the fabrics in my sewing room for the other pieces that I made after Christmas.

A year after she left, my husband and I moved to North Carolina, leaving her in Maine. It was extremely hard for me to do. I felt like I was abandoning her. She graduated, got married, and moved to Germany. But in 1994, she came to live in NC with her husband and beautiful little girl, so now I have 2 daughters! God is good!

Layouts were created using PSE2.0 and the Delite ecut from scrapbook.com.
