Quilts out of Tshirts

Now that my daughter is a senior, I need to search for the directions for making a quilt out the T's she no longer wears.

Can hardly wait to hear where your daughter's new home will be!
I know you can do a search on the internet and there is a place in Calif. that does it.

Good luck to your daughter! Here's hoping she gets la Tour Eiffel (Which, incidentally, is one of my favorite monuments in Paris. I know the French disliked it when it was first built but I think it looks so graceful, emerging into the skyline all around Paris, and since there's no horrid skyscrapers, you can see it from all parts of the city. Très belle!)

Sadly, seeing as it's 5 in the morning and I'm wide awake a good night's sleep has eluded me!

I do hope she get's her first choice since it's been #1 since the begining. We shall see in around 7 hours!!!

My daughter just called to say that her house has a fabulous pledge class and she can hardly wait until the girls arrive.

She said there were 51 girls on the list. That seems lower than the past few years.

Barbara, do you have the stats? How many girls rushed, how many dropped, quota?

I am looking forward to Parents Weekend and seeing all the new girls.

FSUMummy -

I'm so glad to hear that things are going so well for Your Girl!!

If you are looking a sorority gift to send her, take a look at these adorable personalized Greek Letter Stampers and Note Cards. I gave a set to my niece for Christmas and she's had to Email me multiple times to get the link so her sisters could order some too!!

Best of Luck to Your Girl this afternoon!!

Bid Day!!!

My Girl got a bid to Champ-Elysees!

I don't know any details since she sent me a text. But I think she is pleased since it read as follows...

I'm a XXX!!!!!!!!!!!


When I hear more, I'll report.

What's the protocal for revealing houses? Should I mention all of them or just her prefs?

It would be great if you could give us the run down on all the houses/names

It's your call, but in general it's bad form to say in a post on like, page 3, "I hated XYZ so much. I would never pledge here in a million years" and then reveal them at the end. There wasn't anything too horrible said about any of the chapters, so I doubt people would be up in arms about revealing all of them. I chose to give details in my retro recruitment thread and reveal only 8 of the 14 chapters to protect the good name of a chapter that I just had a bad experience with during recruitment.

Congratulations to your daughter! I can't wait to hear where she pledged.

Congratulations FSU Mom- whichever house your daughter has pledged it should be a wonderful experience for her and for you! Take a deep breath! And a high five to you for sharing, thank you!

Congrats to your daughter! Now, assuming the XXX is symbolic of the number of letters in your daughter's sorority, that leaves us with: Alpha Chi Omega, Alpha Delta Pi, Alpha Gamma Delta, Tri-Delta, Gamma Phi Beta, Theta, KKG, Pi Phi, SDT, or ZTA.

Please come back to tell us soon!!!
