One Down. One To Go

Ed graduated from college yesterday with a BS in Business, Computers and Information Systems.  
Looking pretty scruffy but, at least he had a tie on.  
It has been a journey.  
 Father and Son
 Mom and Son
 It was a very nice ceremony. 
The speakers were eloquent without being winded
The music was excellent and the procession started with a bagpiper who wasn't too overwhelming. 

We have the department potluck on Tuesday.  
We are voting for the best ugly sweater at $5 a vote to raise money for the Salvation Army
I got rid of my ugly Christmas sweaters a long time ago.  
The didn't have any plus size sweaters where I stopped today so I improvised.  
The gingerbread men are pot holders.  I pinned them on, one in front and one in back.  
Added a little garland on the bottom.  
I could use some bells around but, I don't know if I have any and don't want to go to Walmart to buy any. This may have to suffice.  
 I did finish Where's Rudolph.  
I love this little piece.  
It is small over 1 on 28 count.  
He will fit in a readimade frame
Just been very busy getting ready for Christmas and dealing with Mom things.  
She has not been feeling well and is going to need more care at the Assisted Living. 
She does not want to return to the nursing home.  

Finally, if you haven't checked it out, Nancy at Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe has been doing an amazing give away for the Twelve Days of Christmas.
Check out my side bar.  
Hope you had a wonderful weekend.
Keep Stitching
