Retreat and graduating… oh and lost…


 

I received my results on Friday and I passed… Woo Hoo… I now have
completing my academic program and waiting for my graduation certificate… I was truly amazed and beside myself that I can now say I have completed my academic program…. a degree in commerce major in Accounting and a minor in Finance…Ta Da and Woo Hoo again…

I was away on retreat over the weekend and we had our Christmas Party… we all were very well behaved yet only got a little bit of sewing done…  it was so nice nonetheless…

I did finish these little treasures…
I purchased them some time ago… I am not going to say how long ago… but Ta Da… I just love them… the pattern is Deer Tree by Marg Low

 
 


 and I had a go at needle turn… fiddly be nice… it’s a quilt in a box that is going around…

also, Sarah and I did these lovely projects… the funky zippers and fabric are from… Hands on workshop-HOW



the pattern is from Atkinson Designs called Bridget’sBagettes (AKT-162) with a Sarah twist… and we also have a second project to do, with the stripy fabric and funky zippers…

I did a little cooking leading up to my exam results and then proceeded to eat them… I just love homemade fruit mince pies….

And lookie who is made a home at our place….

Oh and the lost issue… be warned…. Be very warned… I was a really grumpy girl…
Sheesh… what a Thursday…. We had someone come view our place at 6pm… so we had to have the house cleaned for them…Grrr… and I also had to collect Dani Corey Harrison and Nanna from their overseas trip at the airport, at 6pm… it all was just one f#*@ up after another…
first the flights were LATE… and I had no way to find out…
secondly, I pulled over to call Phil and see if he could find out what the flip was going on…that’s when a security car pulled up behind me …. Beeping to move on…. I was off the road and I thought far enough away not to be an issue… NOT…
thirdly I got LOST… I was starving…. and as the plane was LATE I went to Maccas for a burger…. That’s when I got LOST…. SHEESH… told you it was mad… I am glad I have retreat coming up…
and lastly I was not a happy lady…
and as it is National Agriculture Day today this is how I support the amazing farming family’s…
Cheerers for now and thanks for stopping by… Robyn…

  3. Woohoo and Ta da! Congratulations on gaining your degree Robyn, what an awesome effort - you must be so proud of yourself!! Lucky you going off to retreat - a Christmas party sounds fun..the bear looks aptly themed :-) and cute ornaments and sewing done. What a hassle getting to the airport - etc etc - they can be a great cause of a lot of stress! Good on you supporting National Ag day - wish our general population thought a little more of farmers!
