Marvelous Monday Update 11/28/11

SCHOOL/GRADUATION
Last week, I had a surprise delivered to the office.

My BFF couldn't make it to the graduation ceremony so she had flowers delivered to the office, and mailed a card to me. How sweet is that?!?

I'm at the midway point in my final semester. I had a midterm exam last week. FOUR more weeks to go. Just four!

GIVEAWAY
Lesli at Fabulous Frogger is hosting a giveaway. The unique part of it is that the more followers she gets, the more things she adds to the giveaway. How fun is that?

STITCHY STUFF
Finally! I finished Parts 4, 5, and 6 of Purple Garden. Only 3 more parts to go.

I know you'll be so glad when this final semester is really over for you. It is so close. How sweet of your friend to send you flowers and a card. I'm sure you would have rather had her at your graduation and I'm sure she wishes you could have been as well.
As always Meari your stitching is nothing short of gorgeous and girl you are really moving along with your purple garden that is for sure. :9)

Meari, it's so nice to see that your accomplishments were recognized by a beautiful bouquet of fall flowers. I have followed your progress and success in school like my own daughter's, who is graduating next month.

I have come to a standstill in my own blogging, but it doesn't keep me from taking a peek at yours and admiring and getting tickled at some of your stuff. Regardless of content, it always entertains.

Purple Garden is awesomely beautiful, adn you are one fast stitcher! I love the Shaker influence in the design! On the pink fabric, it's striking. I would like to do one of my own on a light blue fabric in blue and beige, I think. Where can you find the design? I know it's by Angie Designer, but I get confused by the site.

Hi Meari, I've been away for a bit, but I want to send congratulations for graduating! The flowers are lovely and very nice of your BFF to send them.

I'm sure you're getting excited about finally finishing the semester!
