At the beginning of the month we had DD's dance show which, as expected, was fabulous. Everyone did a wonderful job and had a great deal of fun. We no sooner finished with the show than school was winding down for the year. DD finished her freshman year in high school. We got her report card at the end of the month and she did a great job in all her classes.
DD got about a week off from school and then started her first summer job as an assistant in the day camp she had attended for the past nine years. She will be working for eight weeks. And if that isn't enough to keep her busy, she will be participating in dance workshops on Tuesday evenings for four weeks. She wants to go up "en pointe" in ballet, so she is taking a workshop in ballet and a second in "en pointe", as well as a third workshop in jazz. One of the days at the end of school we had to visit the dance store so that she could be fitted for the pointe shoes. It's critical that the shoes fit well, and the teacher has to approve the shoes/fit. I don't think in my entire life I have ever spent so much time getting shoes fitted!
The Moorishp Spelndour class from Shining Needle Society ended but I still have to complete my piece. I am nearing the end and had hoped to have it finished by the end of June. Alas, it was not meant to be, but progress is certainly being made.

In addition to finishing Moorish Splendour and Birds on a Cherry Blossom Branch (finally), I hope to start the cross-stitch Achoo!, mentioned in my last blog. I will also be cross-stitching a square (maybe two) for World of Charity Stitching. And today I'm supposed to start stitching Stellar Polaris, another Carole Lake/Michael Boren piece from Shining Needle Society. I think that should keep me busy!
Until next time, happy stitching to everyone. And a very happy Independence Day for those who are celebrating.
