My Rush Hour Has Arrived!

No one I know epitomizes Rush Hour better than my twenty-one year-old granddaughter.  She is a college student who also works 32 hours per week as a cocktail waitress at a large casino resort.  She works from 6 PM to 2 AM, then RUSHES to 8 AM classes, then back to work at 6 PM.  Since both school and work are about 40 minutes from home (and each in a different town), she spends a lot of time in her car.  And, it looks like she actually lives in her car.  It greatly resembles a large blue trash can strewn with remnants of fast food meals, multiple uniform and clothing changes, college books and papers, ....and a Rubik Cube??  I thought about posting a photo of the interior of her car, but decided it was too depressing. 

I purchased only one yard of Rush Hour fabric and combined it with the aptly named "aspirin dot" print...always need aspirin for those Rush Hour headaches.  The remainder of the black, white and grey fabrics were left from The Ghastlies Hop.  And, of course, my Quilts of Valor stash always yields red fabric.

First a divided organizer box:

A bag to rush off to the gym with...."aspirin" print on the back side:
A coffee cup cozy for a strong espresso...lined with Insulbrite to help hold in the heat:

 And, finally a ruffled wristlet keychain.

 All packed and ready to go:

 BUT, as I was carrying this out to her little blue car, I noticed my own little car....
Sorry, Kat, this car organizer kit belongs in my car.

Thank you Carol at Just Let Me Quilt and Madame Sam at Sew We Quilt for making this blog hop possible.  Lots of fun.

Please visit the rest of our Rush Hour participants and tell them what you think about their projects.
