It's a beautiful bag and I wish her the best of luck in her studies.

Thanks!  I think she will do well, no one ever had to prompt her to  
do her homework or practice her bassoon.  But, oh my, NYC...  :-}

Oh my, I can't imagine all the temptations and it will take a lot of her willpower to stay focused!

She has laser focus, I'm pretty sure she'll do fine.  But I'll miss  
her sunny smile and disposition *here*.

Beverly,
  I went to Nursing School in   Manhattan at the ripe old age of 17. We  
had all of 70 students in my class. The program was demanding, the  
temptations were there, just as they are now. Few if any of my classmate  
ever strayed from the goal of getting an education. Someone as focused  
as your DGD  will not have a problem with with the distractions of the  
city. I have no doubt she'll enjoy the good things there and not be  
swayed from her goal.

The hospital I studied at was about 5 blocks from the Metropolitan  
Museum of Art. It was the place I'd turn to when I was feeling a lot of  
pressure. She'll find her place.
Juno
PS Love all your work!

I am not overly concerned about her ability to stay on task.  
Fortuatly, the Fellowship she has will enable her to take in much of  
the cultural benefits of NYC, and between  
opera/concerts/ballet/museums and her studies I don't expect there  
will be much time left over for distractions.  Like, boys...

Thanks you so much.  I added several new pages recently, you might  
like the 'dolls' section. ;-)

A friend who has been given her aunts Husky Sewing Machine has asked me to
teach her the basic sewing skills.  We will start in a week or so with her
learning the basics of the machine while sewing a simple project.  I do so
enjoy teaching my love of sewing!

Thanks to everyone for the encouragement!  And speaking of figs------I'm  
picking figs now and I hope that tomorrow I can pick enough to make some  
sugar free preserves to enjoy this winter in Florida, even if it is just a  
few pints..
I DO loves to eat fresh figs!
