Graduation Flurries

Oh I have been so busy this past week with Graduation "stuff"! Of course we had the party last weekend and then the real ceremony was Tues night. It was a gorgeous night and it was held out on the football field. Other than being really hot (about 90) it was clean and lovely. And thank goodness where our school is, it is flat as a pancake so we did have a breeze! (And no that isn't Jenna talking - but I thought that picture would give you a good idea how they set it up on the football field).


This weekend we had a multitude of graduation parties. Jenna has been flying from one to another and I attended a few of them with her.


When I get a chance I keep plugging along on her graduation quilt! Here are some more blocks/colors. Look at the adorable one my niece drew for her (she is 13 but handicapped) and then the other one is my sisters for her! Leave it to Darci to think of something perfect and unusual! I"m not sure but I think she said this is the life cycle of carbon or something like that. I can't remember!

I adore the block colors!! Sounds like you have some very unique and witty relatives! ;)

Wow, love the block AND the bright colors... and that's going to be a spectacular quilt to go on a college bed... going to make it long twin so it'll fit on them?

And if the artist of that one is handicapped, it's sure not in artistic abilities!

Your neice's drawing is amazing and I love the humor of the carbon life cycle!

The colors on this one really sing, can't wait to see all of the blocks together!

Congrats to your daugther (if I haven't said it already) and to you!

Congrats to all. Love the bright colors on those blocks - very crisp and happy. What great signatures. Not just boring "congrats" - but unusual and personal.

Those two block centres are really special - there's only so many ways you can write 'Good Luck' or 'I'll miss you'. You both look so proud of her and she's such a pretty girl

Dawn, what a great family pic, Jenna looks so happy and relieved and a pic of the hubby. It's going to a quilt to treasure.
