When looking back a month ago …this day was such a touching and big day of Viktors life…ending school ( The Children and Leisure programme), leaving his friends and the not knowing of what shall be of the future. But also a most happy day..so a lot of mixed feelings on the graduation day, for all of us …

It started with champagne breakfast and ended with party at Piteå Stadshotell…

Do love his choice of tie!

Running out with his friends with loud music playing and seeing all the family in front of them cheering…that must have been a great feeling…

Then the meeting with family … with signs made, often with pictures from childhood (we chose one from when he was 6 months and his early tennis love 😉), flowers, gifts and fun animals…

Viktor with his dad and grandad and aunt…

and of course a big big hug from me… this picture says it all…there were so much emotional feelings…so we cried a lot.

Here is a close up of the crocheted frog (one crazy animal) I made for Viktor…as an honour to his graduation. Why the frog? First reason…he has always been Prince Charming since day one…💗… second he has always loved green (he was obsessed with green when little, only played with green duplo, painted with only green pens, chose green clothes…you get it… and therefore the frog was cute! Since it was green. This was his green era…so of course he needed a green frog. 😉 Fifteen years or so ago I even made him a small frog/green quilt to remember all this.

Then there was the traditional tractor ride around the town… they had a blast!

And this class made something extra to be proud of…they gave their saved class fund to the Swedish Childhood Cancer Fund…and for this they came in the newspapers, tv and and I think they also are nominated to becoming this years Piteå citizen.

This is so great…what a lovely thing to do…💗

After all this excitement we went to Lars and had a family get together with food and gifts…

Uncle Viktor and Stella…

What a day Viktor…😊 and with this family ended the celebrations while Viktor continued his with the party and his friends…💗

June was a busy month sewing for me…with the secret sewing…still can’t show but it’s getting closer for reveal…

Binding time…

And this little cutie became 3 months…💗

Wow…I’m almost caught up…only a month behind…yay Stina!! Way to go! 💗💗💗

See you soon!
