Congratulations Jonathan!!!

So the big day has come and gone. Jonathan has graduated! Can you say "Proud Mama"? He sang in the Senior ensemble but I can't find a picture of it....Sarah was the designated photographer...bad Sarah! Here he is giving the best speech ever! Biased? Nah, not me :) I love the rose ceremony. And may I just say that it was called that LONG before the "other" (blech!) rose ceremony. I think he's pretty happy, yes? So it's just Sarah and me for the next 2 years. I think she's a little bit scared...probably with good reason. I've been pouring over the curriculum catalogs...must get everything in I've ever wanted to do in the next two years!!
I am taking part in the CG&G quilt along and I was so excited to be sewing again after such a long hiatus that I couldn't stop at the gathering fabric or the cutting but had to keep going and sewed all my little pieces into blocks...I am going to try and control myself and wait for the next step...we'll see how successful I am.I am now going to go brew a nice cup of tea and sit in my chair and (hopefully) finish my book!

Congratulations all around. Takes an entire family/village to raise em up to this big day. Nice to see you'll be back to sewing. How's the book so far?

Chartreuse Moose said...

Congratulations to both mom AND the graduate! It's a big day! The quilt is lovely...!

Candie said...

I. Love. This. Book. Better than the first two but all three just as good as the other if that makes sense. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo movie is quite riveting also although very graphic... too bad Mr. Larsson is gone he was an awesome writer...

Crafty Mama said...

Congratulations!!!! What a handsome graduate! I'm biased on his name- my son is Jonathan too. He's only 7 though, so it will be awhile before he graduates ☺
I love your fabric choices too, so pretty!!

Mama Spark said...

congrats to your son! I love how your quilt turned out. I am in that quilt along too, but using it as leaders and enders, thanks for putting me on to the pattern in the first place!

Darlene said...

Way to go, Jonathan - wahoooooo!!!!!!

Congrats to you, too, Lil Sis - I know you're proud of him!

I love your blocks - oh my goodness your quilt is adorable.

Ulla said...

That was quick! I only finished cutting the fabrics today.
Congratulations for the graduation.

Congratulations to the proud mom!

Wonderful looking quilt.

Those books are great reading - and they made very good films, too. Only in swedish, so far - I think they are about to do the Hollywood version. Enjoy!
