proud mama and EMS week

 Sunday we had a great day in our family as we watched my son's graduation for his Master of Science in Disaster Medicine and Management. He is a flight nurse and volunteers for the local ambulance association and fire company. (My other son drives medical transports as a second job and is a volunteer firefighter and also is certified to fight wildfires so we are awfully proud of him, too.)

 This coming week is
Emergency Medical Services Week (May 15th to 21st) so be sure to support those in your community who are there to help when you need them.

Last week I tried to post but for some reason Blogger wasn't working. I wanted to show  you the latest little applique project that I finished. It finished at 6.5 inches. There are a couple of things I would have done differently, and I might just make another one.

Well,   off to my bee this morning so must run!  Happy quilting.

What a happy time for your family! I know you are proud of your son! I love your little seashells! I would love to try to make one like that for my home here in Florida! ♥

Congratulations to your son. He is in a career field where we all desperately need good people! Love your little hanging and that seashell hanger is adorable. I don't think I knew you had one like that.

Congratulations to you both! What a wonderful accomplishment.

6.5" is tiny!
