A Christmas Musical, A Graduation and A Surprise Sewer!

Last Monday, I was invited to Grade 4G's Christmas Musical. We were treated to a lovely show by Nelson and his friends. This was followed by a lovely morning tea. Nelson even sang a solo bit!Then on Tuesday night, Austin had his Grade 6 graduation. The children all had a fantastic night. After the formal part of the night, there was a supper/dance. They all did a couple of dances for us to watch. Then the boys got their mums and the girls their dads, and we all had a dance. It was very special having a dance with Austin.
Doesn't he look nice in his new outfit!

Mitchell came home from school yesterday with this lovely cushion he made in home economics. I didn't think I'd ever see Mitchell sewing (and I still may well not) but he was very proud of his cushion. I think he's done a great job on his first ever sewing piece! I don't know if he intends to doing any more!
While I'm here, I might as well put in a plug. I've entered my Starry Sensations quilt (see post below) in the Quilting Gallery's weekly contest. If you like my quilt, please head over and vote for mine (bit rude aren't I?).

I followed your link Christine,

But I could not work out where to vote for your quilt.

I can't believe the year is almost over! Graduations already.

What a cute post! I think it is great that Mitchell chose to make such a wonderful little project! I love the colors!
As for your quilt, that is beautiful. I have never seen one done like that and I love it! Great work!
