Rainy Graduation

We saw my other son graduate yesterday.  The ceremony was scheduled to take place outside but mother nature had a thing or two to say about that and it had to be moved inside due to rain.  We are so very proud of him and are looking forward to supporting him as he goes on to attend UNCG this fall.
I couldn't get a good photo with all the rain and crowd at the ceremony so I had to settle for a quick snap when we got back home. 

Chis gifted me with a Bent Creek "United"  kit at our Sampler Guild meeting and I finished the stitching last night. I thoroughly enjoyed stitching on this 18 ct linen with that big ole perle cotton.

Cute, isn't it?  I had thought to put this in a 5x7 frame but it is just a tad too large.  Now I have to decide how to finish it.  Suggestions??

Oh, almost forgot.  The winner of the Summer Garden pattern is June!  I wish I had a pattern for all of you.  Perhaps June will pass it on too once she stitches it.

Have a great Friday ya'll!

Congratulations to your son on his graduation! And I think your BC finish would be adorable as a quilted wall hanging. :)

THAT is an adorable little patriotic piece! I'm sure you'll come up with something for finishing it.

Congrats on your son's graduation.

Congratulations on another graduation! I wish him much success in the future. That little bird stack is adorable. What about putting a little rod at the top and making it a wall hanging? You are clever and I know you'll come up with something wonderful - take care!

Congrats to both of your sons. I know you are a proud momma! I love that brent creek design.. I may have to hunt that United down to stitch before the 4th.. Great picture!

Congratulations to Son number 2 and his graduation! Your little stitch is so cute. It would make a cute pillow if you found a great fabric to add to its size.

Thank you Myra for the fab chart, and yes once stitched I will pass it on in another give away , can't wait to start it.
Congratulations to your son he looks so smart in his blue.
Your stitching looks lovely what about a stand up or use mounting board and a little stand then you can stand it up for July on your fire place.

I am sorry that graduation got rained on. Congratulations to your son!
How cute is that Bent Creek piece? I love the birds and the colors and the buttons too :)
Have a great weekend!

Oh, how wonderful to have another reason to celebrate--congratulations to your other son. And best of luck to him at UNCG in the fall!

Your little finish is adorable, Myra... With your sewing skills, I'll bet you could create a cute pillow--maybe frame it with a patchwork of red, white, and blue squares... Thrown on a few stars on top? I'm sure you'll come up with something fun!

Congratulations to your son for his accomplishments and your family for their continued support. My grandmother always said that rain on a "special" day signified extra blessings from above.
The patriotic stitching is lovely...I suggest a "mattress" finish with a patriotic themed trim. I look forward to seeing the finish you choose.
Busy Hands...Happy Heart
