Proud of their Dad!!!

Today my husband graduated from Florida State University with his master's degree. We are immensely proud of his hard work and success in school while working full time as the sole provider of our family. He's amazing and awesome and I love him very much!
So you know me... I just had to make the kids something special to wear for graduation!

 I created the design using two different fonts. The D comes from Five Star Font's Diploma~Graduation Monogram Font. The rest of the text is Becky from 8 Claws and a Paw. It took me FOREVER to pick a font which at the 3" size was a satin stitch the same width as the D's satin stitch. I had to do a touch of resizing and adjusting the pull compensation, but it turned out great IMHO. :)
I've had this FSU fabric in my stash for a long time (picked it up as a remnant) and it was the *perfect* amount to make a skirt for Annaliese! I followed the tutorial for a Girly Twirly Skirt posted on Just Deanna. It's a decent length, so she should get some good wear out of it.
We are all thrilled that this chapter in our life is over, and anxious to see what God has in store for us next!
