Two Wonderful June Finishes!

First,  the most awesome finish of all! My daughter graduated from high school this past week! So excited for her and for what her future holds. I can't believe my second baby is finished with public school and that part of her life is over.  Now she an adult and moving on to the next!  Current plans are to attend college locally and major in Graphic Design.

This is Alexis with her boyfriend Antwain on graduation day right after she got finished! So happy for her! He is a great guy too, he just graduated as well and will be attending college on a football scholarship a few hours from us. 

Alexis with a few of her friends from her baccalaureate service. It was such a lovely service and the pastor did a beautiful job encouraging and these young adults on their way. I love looking at this photo and seeing seeing all the girls bright shining faces. They are all looking forward to the future and I hope and pray that it filled with happiness, and the purpose that they seek in life! 

Now onto my second June finish...Antique Sampler 1861 by Blackbird Designs from the book In Friendship's Way. I didn't stitch it on the called for mello linen but instead did it on 32 count vintage lentil by Lakeside Linen with the recommended Gentle Arts and Classic Colorwork's  threads. I love it.  I thought about staining it, but as that makes me nervous I will leave it it alone.  This is my first finish of the year, I am sad to say...but hopefully there will be more! Thanks to all who encouraged me on my last post.  I appreciate it and as always I appreciate your stopping by to visit me!

Next month is an exciting month for me, because I am going to Chicago to Tomorrow's Heirlooms for a class with Paulette Stewart of Plum Street Samplers and Jeannette Douglas. Can't wait! Now I am off to find that next project or finish another. Happy Sunday to you!
