It Is Finished...School, that is!

Just popping in here to let you know that I passed my state board exam for nursing this past week! Those of you who have taken any kind of board exam will understand completely the relief I felt! So the journey I began four years ago has come to a successful conclusion! Now I can reacquaint myself with my family and my sewing room, and get back to some sort of normal life again!

There is a crochet video tutorial on my list of things to do for Hooked On Needles, as well as a picture tutorial for a cute little sewing project that I shared a while ago and have had a few requests for. So I am hoping to get to those sometime this summer, between trips to the pool with the kids and working my wonderful job as a nurse.

I do hope you are enjoying your summer, maybe with a little sewing or crocheting mixed in!

Happy Stitching!

    Hope this helps!

  • Mary Grace, You astound me accomplishing an RN along with your family responsibilities and extensive "crafty" talent. I appreciate your generosity and kindness. I was startled to read that you grew up in Walnut Creek where we now live. I am considerably older than you as I have a son your approximate age. We first lived in Ygnacio Valley before moving to the Danville/Diablo area.where our younger children attended Monte Vista High. Our older girls attended Carondelet. Many thanks for sharing your multiple talents. I belong to a knitting group in Rossmoor which contributes to charity. Best wishes.
