My granddaughter got an award for being a Rising Star. It is given to students who teachers have sent a letter to the national board (and I think it's the PTA, but don't quote me on that ). Donna is so proud of her award, its made of marble and in her words is not a plastic trophy, so it must be good. She also got a copy of the letter her teacher sent in, you can see it here as well. Did I tell you that I'm so proud of her? I know my daughter is watching over her and smiling at her accomplishments.
I have managed to do a little stitching, but not much. My big accomplishment is a finish!! My second one for 2015. Also got my canvas, will take a picture of it once I get it out and on the stretcher bars. Going to pull out about 4 canvases to work on along with my many, many x-stitch projects. One of them is bound to be finished before year end….right? If not, then 2016 will be my year of finished :)
