|Jingle BOM Applique Block One FINISHED!|
My niece and former flower girl graduated with an Engineering Science degree from Smith College in Northampton, MA yesterday. I still can't believe she's all grown up now.

It was a beautiful graduation ceremony, the culmination of a weekend full of hundred-year-old traditions and a chance to catch up with my husband's side of the family. Arianna Huffington of the Huffington Post delivered one of the best -- and funniest -- commencement speeches that I have ever heard:
Now that I'm finally home (and properly caffeinated, thank you), I've got some unpacking, laundry, and grocery shopping to attend to. Lars and Anders have only three weeks left of school, and next weekend my mom and I are taking a machine applique class with Harriet Hargrave at the North Carolina Quilt Symposium. Now that I've tried a little hand applique, it will be interesting to try Hargrave's invisible machine applique method to see which I prefer.
Have a great week, everyone!
