I always seem to be working on the large flower bands when I take progress pics!
In the past couple of weeks, I have received a couple of prizes I won. First, I won a beautiful pack of luscious wool squares from Heirlooms by Ashton House.
So many pretty colors and so yummy! Thank you so much!
Next, I won a copy of the Just Cross Stitch Annual Christmas Ornament Preview magazine from Jan of Tree of Life Samplings.
Jan has a lovely design inside, and she signed the page for me too! So special! Thank you, Jan! I love your designs!
Now for the milestone. All summer since the boy child got home, he and I (and the father type on weekends) have been going out driving. Boy child driving. Both my kids got late starts on getting their driver's licenses -- neither was in a hurry to get one, and we didn't push for it either. But this, we decided, was the summer for the boy child to get his license. So driving every day was the routine.
Last Thursday, the boy child went for his road test. And he passed!!! Hooray! Now here in NY, the tester gives the successful test-ee something that is basically a receipt that serves as a temporary license (along with the test-ee's driver's permit) until the real thing is mailed to the person. So I couldn't take a picture of the boy child with his new license yet. But I did take a picture of the boy child as he was about to leave on his first ever solo drive.
Congratulations, kid! You are an official driver now!
Our elusive girl child came home this past weekend as a surprise belated birthday gift to me. She also gave me a lovely, delicate little bracelet, which I love!
She's back to her own home and work now, but it was so nice to have her visit.
Here are a few pictures of the boy child and his companion. I love this series.
And yes, I was watching all the royal baby news last week! lol!
Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi. I hope everyone has a great week.
