College page 14 and a new start!

Hello hello!

The first bit of exciting news has absolutely nothing to do with stitching, but is exciting nonetheless (at least for me). I got my grad portfolio accepted! That means that if I pass both of my other classes this semester, I'll be done! Woooo! Managed to get it done four days before the deadline and accepted two days before the deadline (which is tomorrow) so yay! That is DONE and out of the way!

Now for the second bit of exciting news, finished page 14 of College!

Before:



After:


I love how you can see a little bit of the flowers coming in at the bottom. College is now 60% done.

Handsome Helpful Fiancé picked my Christmas gift, Library Adventures, to stitch on next. So here is my new start on that. He asked if I could stitch from the last page to the first, so I started bottom right at page 24:



Not much progress yet, but it's a bit easier to stitch than College so maybe faster progress? Once I'm done with this page (probably soon) I'll move back to College for page 15.

I don't have much other news to report, for now. So with that, the stats, and happy stitching!

Days until end of school: 23
Days until wedding: 167 (holy crap!)
Anticipated end date of College: 7/8/2016
Anticipated end date of Library Adventures: 2/25/2018

Congratulations on everything! That is such a huge accomplishment for school, and I bet it is a huge load off your mind, too. Great job on college, and I am looking forward to watching the library grow as well!
