joyeux anniversaire Joce

One of my French forum friends celebrates her birthday this month: Joce. Since she sent me some lovely gifts for my birthday, it was only natural that I should want to send a little package to celebrate HER birthday . . . and as Spring is in the air . . . Spring was the theme ^^  I sent her a few packets of seeds for her garden and finished off a cross stitched piece into a decorative plaque.

“Spring in my garden” (Barbara Ana) that I stitched as a SAL – laced onto cardboard with wadding underneath, some chequered green ribbon around the edge and two little “yoyo” flowers made from the same fabric I used for backing.

Title gives you my four latest grades for my Animal Care course – the least one can say is that I’m  consistent lol.

I WAS a little disappointed, I have to say as it means my overall average has been bumped down and, after 28 assignments, I now have an average of 17.81/20.  Still not too bad, but I have the feeling it’ll bump down some more . . . have just finished writing up the next assignment and am not sure if I’ve tackled the question in as much depth as necessary.  Oh well, it’s in an enveloppe waiting to be posted and I shall plug on tomorrow with the next lesson and assignment (which will be quicker to do as it’s a multi-choice one).
