More fun than a WIPocalypse!

 
Our visit to Charlottesville, VA, last weekend was for the graduation of Ms. Meghan, the first cousin to graduate from high school.  She went to a private school in the outskirts of Charlottesville, an absolutely beautiful setting with a Hogwarts atmosphere!


The girls all wore a wrist corsage.
 
Graduation Day!

Graduation Party!
 

 On Sunday, we were supposed to see a polo match at the King Family Vineyards, but it was cancelled due to the ground not being dry enough from the rain.  Bummer!  BUT, that doesn't mean we couldn't go and enjoy the day and drink some wine!  It was a gorgeous day, just a little hot with a nice breeze.  I think we all became "red necks" that afternoon, just a little burnt!  We plan on going back to see a match another time, and of course drink more wine... 

As for stitching, this is what I worked on while in the car - not too much!  I already know I'm going to add the Welsh dragon for St. David's Day, I'm just not sure where I'm going place it.

I really like these monthly samplers you're stitching.

What is she wearing under her mortar board? I have to ask!
