Cheers......!

I passed my oral comprehensive exam! You cannot imagine how relieved I am. Talk about stress overload. I am so exhausted!

I must say, I'm really proud of myself. This was such a big deal for me! I faced and conquered! lol After the exam Professor Robinson turns to Professor Despland and says "We've been through hundreds of these comprehensive exams and we managed to survive yet another one!" And I thought I was the one that was doomed! lol I think it showed that I was overly stressed!

So, this is it, we're close to the end of the road. I've got to finish my paper and it's a done deal! Stay tune, party time! lol

On the quilting front I have been doing a bit of hand embroidery on the Hocus Pocus quilt by Crab Apple Hill Designs.

Voici Block 4!

I just love the blocks on this quilt!

I'll admit, I enjoy working on one colour embroidery blocks. They're such a breeze! No brainers that's for sure! lol

I just love that quilt! That's going to be one spooky sweet quilt! lol

I've given myself the next few days off until I get back into the books. Stay tune for some finishes. I do have one that I want to share with you but I need to take a better picture!

Thanks for stopping by!
