Yes, it's finished. I have to put the face on, which is printed on paper. Haven't done that yet. I love this sampler.
Ok, if all you wanted to see was stitching, you can skip the many many pictures ahead. :D
So why am I posting on a Wednesday instead of on Monday? Well, the girl child's graduation was on Tuesday, with festivities happening Monday as well. (Sorry, Diamond Jubilee. Missed seeing most of the Queen's celebrations, sadly.) So I am going to post tons of pictures with as little text as possible.
You now get to find out how bad I am at editing myself. I hope Blogger cooperates with all these pictures. lol!
Monday was Class Day, with a famous speaker involved. See if you can recognize him. (Yes, it rained for a big part of the event, so even though the event was outside, we wimped out and opted for the indoor simulcast. I know, what wimps.)
I'll give you a hint on who this is. Steve Carrell. :D What a great speaker! And we found out afterwards by googling that he graduated college the year after me!!
Eating lunch after the Class Day event. My father and stepmother came out for graduation too. (It had stopped raining by then. See all the orange rain ponchos they handed out to the brave ones who sat outside?)
Graduation Day in front of Nassau Hall.
Another famous face. Aretha Franklin got an honorary Doctorate of Music.
Pics of the graduate with family and friends.
The girl child with her boyfriend.
The diploma and certificate. (The certificate is to acknowledge a minor.)
Shades of Rafa? (A tennis reference, it's French Open time.)
The girl child sad to leave her eating club.
And yes, we are very proud of our girl.
Mia was very lonely without us around. Her routine was interrupted, and she wasn't pleased. But here she is before we left for graduation with her boy. Yes, that's the boy child's bed. They tend to sleep together.
A boy, his bass guitar, and his cat. Plus various items that are kept on his bed. Ahem.
Sorry for the long blog post. The boy child's graduation comes in a few weeks!! The girl child is driving home today with the last of her stuff from college. Time to find a couple of apartments, one for each child. Yikes!
Thanks for all your wishes for my recovery from the surgery. I'm almost back to normal, survived the graduation and all the packing I did of the girl child's things. Although I am tired. lol! The test results were all good, so all I have to do is heal up. Yay!
Thanks for stopping by and saying hi. I hope everyone has a great week!
(Graduate class of *62, class of '81, class of '83, and now class of '12. Yay!)
