Goings on ...

Well we have our second college graduate!  Our daughter graduated from college 2 weekends ago .. I can't believe it!  We are so proud ... Magna cum laude and a couple honors cords ... With a degree in theater arts and communications.  It is bittersweet ... So happy and proud for her, but sad as she will probably not live at home again.  Her degree probably won't land her a job in San Diego ... Maybe Los Angeles, New York or who knows!
It was just a wonderful day.  We drove up with my mom .. And our son and his girlfriend came from Michigan.  My brother who lives in Chicago surprised us by calling at the last minute to say he could come.  It was a wonderful special day, and my blessings just overflow!

We took the opportunity to introduce Kim to Disneyland (son's girlfriend ... She had never been before) ... We had a ball!
It was a perfect day ... Not too hot, not too crowded!  They enjoyed a week in San Diego, and went back last week.  Nick started a new job on Monday and we are so happy for him.  He is due for a change of work environment and are knowing good things are coming for him!

Through it all I've been working hard ...
Look at this beauty ... A wedding quilt

It was gigantic.  My friend requested a tight stitch in a loop design ...
The fabrics are all 30's repro ... Beautiful!
The monster was finished on Monday and I hear is bound and washed ... Waiting for the newlyweds to tie the knot!

As if I don't have enough to do, my friend, Erika, taught me how to crochet!  I can't stop ...
This is a free tutorial on the website Polka Dot Cottage ... A very talented lady.  This is lots of fun and I can't seem to stop!  Perfect for me while I'm sitting in front of the tv at night.  I'm looking forward to having a portable hobby to keep my hands busy when I'm traveling this summer.  What have you been working on?
