Hi out there in blogland! It's a nostalgic day here at our house. It's Ben's last day of school. So many memories have been made from the first time we walked him to school in Germany until he drove himself to his last day here in Maryland. Tomorrow he will walk across the stage and get his diploma and then it will all be over but for the shouting. Excuse a mother's pride here, but I can't help thinking what a great job he did raising us as parents. I think he taught us just as much as we taught him, and though our family is small, we are tight and happy. I feel wonderfully blessed!! Here he is then (kindergarten)
and now (graduation)
I have been crazy busy for a few weeks now, as you can tell from the sparse blog entries. My sister visited with her grandson and we spent a whirlwind weekend seeing some sights in Washington.
Air and Space Museum
Natural History Museum
National Zoo...lions and tigers and bears OH MY!!
She left our Mother here for Ben's graduation and we have had a busy few days getting settled and preparing for graduation tomorrow. I haven't had time to stitch much, but did get my portion of Gillie's RR stitched and am just waiting for Frances to settle someplace so I can send it on to her. Last I heard, Sally's RR is being sent from Gillie too, I had better get my fingers limbered up so I can get hers stitched and on its way as well!! Here is the portion I stitched on Gillie's.
I did get my exchange pieces stitched, I'm just waiting to get my act together to get them finished off so I can pop them in the mail to my partner, Tricia. Hang in there, Tricia, I'll be getting them together soon! Once she has them in her hands, I'll post a pic.
I did get a little stitching done on Winter's Majesty, but didn't take any pictures just yet. There really wasn't much to post. I need my life to slow down a few paces so I can get in some stitching!! I guess I'll end this post here since I have no stitching pics to show...there goes life getting in the way again! Hopefully all is well out there in blogland! I'll be in touch again soon! Till then, stay safe and stitch happy! *Hugs*
