This week, May 7th to 13th, I….

I didn’t get to participate in the Christmas Quilt A-long yesterday.  It was hosted by Sharon at Vrooman's Quilts this month and I hear that she had a great breakfast recipe and a tutorial for some cute ornaments, as well as the next instalment for the Christmas mystery quilt.

And what was I doing instead you ask?  DH and I attended DD # 1’s graduation.  She is now a licenced practical nurse.  Or she will be after she writes her licencing exam this week. 

All ready to go in her white robes; excited and happy.

And the accolades are delivered.

Shawn A-in-chut Atleo, National Chief of Canada’s Assembly of First Nations, was the keynote speaker.  He gave a very inspiring talk and his presence at the little college graduation is a huge honour.

Hats off to all the graduates!

On the drive home, we spotted a bear and DH pulled up beside it so I could get a picture…

Now this is closer to any bear than I would normally want to be.  Look at those claws.  He was chomping on that little patch of grass by his paw, and continued on eating for a moment, then abled up the hill.

Not much sewing this week.  I have a project on the go that I can’t show, but I made good progress on it.  And the tongues of the mukluks are ready…

I’m back to class on Wednesday to find out what the next step is.
