Graduation and finishes :)

Hello All!

I know I have been away again but so much has been happening!  Work has been crazy getting ready to end one school year and starting another.  The bus companies are already looking for their paperwork and I am getting a new principal July 1st.  I have high hopes that she will be good for the school and that we will work well together.

Well first of all please allow me a few minute to tell you about my amazing younger daughter.  She graduated Saturday from Misericordia University in Dallas, PA.  She received her BS in Health Sciences with a minor in Psychology (Magna cumlaude), her Masters in Occupational Therapy, was in both the OT and Psych Honor Societies and on Friday she received the OT Leadership Award.  I am so very proud of my Devin!!!

I also have had several time sensitive projects.  The first few I have to get done by the end of the school year - 

A pillow for a lovely nun at school who always brightens my day.

A pillow for another sweet nun at school who had been in the hospital.  She loves snowmen and yes there is some beading (first time I ever tried that).

I have one more that I will show later as it is a RAK for a dear friend that I still have some finishing to do. Hope to mail it off next week and then you all can see. I also have one that I am doing for my boss as a retirement gift and I promised a cross stitched wedding gift to a friend in Sept.  

This coming weekend my daughter and hubby are gutting the bathroom and putting in a new one.  I will try to post some pictures of that project too LOL!!

Hope you all are stitching away!!



  1. Hearty congratulations to Devin and you too, for being there to support her :) Lovely pictures of all of you
    You projects look great Rose. So kind of you for making such lovely gifts. Am sure the nuns are going to be very happy
