Celebrating & thinking ahead...

This was a quiet week on the crochet front, but it ended with happy celebrations of our youngest son's college graduation yesterday.  Ben graduated with a degree in Criminal Justice: Public Safety Management.  It's inadequate to sum up the day with one picture, but there either aren't enough words (or words aren't enough) to express my joy and pleasure that another son has graduated and is excitedly looking forward to the future.

So proud of and pleased with Ben - but not just because he's finished his college education.  
I'm most pleased because he has a solid faith and a heart to serve others.


And on the crochet front, I have pitifully little to show, but I show it with enthusiasm at the start of a project that I hope to complete this year.  I was meandering around blogland recently when somehow I came upon Jill Ruth & Co.   This woman has a beautiful blog with beautiful pictures, for sure, but when I stumbled upon this Advent calendar project I fell in love. Such a simple "homespun" idea looks like it would be fun to make.  

The CAL project this past week in the Our Happy CAL Place (on Ravelry) was angel ornaments.   It occurred to me that this would make a great first project for an Advent calendar.  

So it begins.  We'll see how it ends and if I actually complete this project.  I have it in mind to make three of these Advent calendars by...  I don't know... Thanksgiving?

To see what other YOPpers are up to, visit our group on Ravelry.  


  1. Congrats to you and your son. You both look wonderful. I love the angels and I have a plan for advent knits too, but haven't started yet. Oh well, I still have six months, right?

    1. Oh no! Six months is all we have?!? Now it suddenly sounds crazy to think I'll get these done...

  2. Congrats to your son and you. You raised his right.

    Love those Angels!

  3. Congratulations to the both of you, you did such a great job. Those angels are brilliant.

  4. Many congratulations to your son (and to you!). I love the idea for your advent calendars - and am reminded that I need to come up with one for our #2 grandson.

  5. Good job, Mama and congrats to your son. I see he has all the honor fixin's with his cap and gown. Awesome.

  6. Hi Becki :) Congratulations to Ben! That's a great accomplishment! And your little angels are very sweet! :)
