Many of you have been sharing the joy of your children's graduations. On Saturday, I attended the graduation of my college roommate's college-aged daughter. (She of the mini-cupcakes craft day.) How quickly did those four years pass!? I swear, all I did was blink. At any rate, Cupcake Claire has moved home before she attends graduate school* on a fellowship. Look at her go!
To commemorate the occasion, I stitched
Of course, the part I was in charge of charting got screwed up. I cannot center anything! To "balance" it I aligned the "College" four stitches in like the "Bryn" if that makes sense. If I hadn't been racing against the clock (I seriously finished stitching this, laced it, put it in the frame, got in the shower, dressed, and went to the graduation) I might have thought to put some buttons next to College. Whatever. It's artistic!
I think she liked it. She told me that she was a real adult now that she had two things in frames to hang on her wall. (Too true that the transition to adulthood is marked by no longer hanging posters with adhesive putty!)
And the transition to old age is marked by your children's (or your friend's children's) transition to adulthood. And yet, in my head, I am only 28.
I am so behind on blog commenting. I've been reading, and you are all fabulous! Soon, I will come and tell you in person.
*She's headed to USC!
