What's in my Hoop

I started stitching 'Lantern Santa' from my 'Just cross stitch' Christmas issue from 2011. He is on page 61 and the pattern is by Sue Hillis.  I've decided not to buy the 2012 issue because there are so many ornaments I still want to stitch in this issue (2011).  So many patterns .... so little time to stitch. hahaha

I made a quilt block for a friend this week... I'm not sure if she reads my blog so I'm not going to say anything about who it is for.  It's a surprise!

And my daughter had her Convocation for the class of 2013 yesterday. I cried through out the whole thing.  Especially when they played 'Promp Circumstance'  as the students entered and exited the auditorium. 

I still can't believe this is her last year of high school, that she is a senior!

The quilt block is so pretty! I also love Lantern Santa. This will be an emotional year for your family. I remember my kids last year of HS. It's been awhile but it seems like yesterday!

I like the darker blue linen you chose for Santa. And wow that quilt block looks complicated (and but very pretty)!
