Honor Society and CaHRH

Last week our daughter was inducted into the National Honor Society at the University. This is such an honor for her and for us. She works very hard at her studies. We went to campus to see the ceremony and take her to dinner. I must admit that as a home schooling mom I feel especially happy...all the time and energy has been worth it. She is a senior this year and will have one more year to go to graduate with a degree in web page design and computer graphics.

For any of you that have been following my progress I wanted to show you CaHRH again. I did not have the right color of floss to finish block two so I started block three until I could get to the Craft Gallery. When I went last week they had in all the new market items so I did get to see Autumn at Hawk Run Hollow. It is really lovely too. I did pick up a few of the new patterns and I will show them in a different post.
We did break a record last week...for the most snow fall in February...25 inches in one month was the record, well we are now above wonder it seem like all it does is snow around here. We had a small storm this week where the visibility was low but only about three inches of snow...well enough of that.
I have been doing some cleaning too...I worked on my bedroom and tomorrow I am going to take down the curtains and wash them and hopefully finish that room. I just painted and redecorated it no so long ago so just cleaning it for now.
I helped dh finish our has been a long I will run an add and try to get someone who will not rip it up!!!
While I was at Wally world today I noticed how grouchy everyone looked. Is it the weather??? The season??? The day??? I don't know but when you scanned the people in all the lines and shopping they all seemed so unhappy...that is so sad.
Well, I am off to do a little more stitching since I now have the floss that I needed. Blessing to each of you until we meet again.

She is adorable with her honor. Congratulations to all of you! Love your block. What sort of fabric are you stitching on? Are you using aida cloth or something different? It is beautiful.

Congratulations to your daughter! National Honor Society is a huge achievement.

Your cross stitch is beautiful.

My sister lives in Ohio and homeschools her four kids - well she did. Her oldest is a senior in a Christian school. It takes so much discipline and dedication, but it is so worth it. I admire you!

Thank you for coming to my blog so I could get to know you. I need to go back to the beginning of your blog and read. :)
