Oh yay, I got an award!!!!

My school is out for the summer! I can breathe a huge sigh of relief now. This semester seemed more difficult than past ones, due to lots of outside stress, but I'm better about everything now. Especially since I won an award in my speech class!

JFK bust

The John F. Kennedy Speech Award!
This is rewarded to the best speaker in my speech class, and it's chilling out on my family's mantle. I broke down and cried when I received this bust on Thursday, and gave a happy speech, thanking my fellow classmates for letting me learn about them through their speeches, and thanking them for listening to me. It was quite a lovely experience. I've still got this surreal feeling about it. It was nice hearing 'Congratulations!' from everyone in class.

In crafty news, during my last school week, I picked up a copy of CrossStitcher magazine from Joanns. They only had copies from the Royal Wedding Celebration edition, so I grabbed it, unsure if/when they'd get more.
Why have I not discovered this magazine before? It has so many cute designs in it, and it came with a stitch kit for a pincushion, which I'm slowly working on. In my adventures in flipping through the magazine, I came across a section which taught you to dye your stitch fabric with teas, and had some cute tea cup charts.

Tea Cup cross-stitch

No clue what I'll do with it, but I like tea, so it fits.

Are any of you out of school? What are your plans for the summer?

Take Care, and Happy Crafting.
