This past weekend we squeezed in a graduation party in between my nieces wedding and reception.  Mel used to live across the street, so I knew her as a young girl.  She’s a beautiful young woman heading on to college now!

Melanie was on swim team.  I didn’t want to don a bikini and do a photo shoot at the pool. So the next best thing:  during this heat wave, the kids were in the slip and slide so I asked them to hold up the blanket!

Since Mel is OSU bound, I made a sweatshirt tote for her!

She was so excited to receive the quilt.  Her mom managed to keep this a surprise, although Mel was missing her shirts along the way!  She said, “That’s where my shirts went!”
