Paradigm Lost Update

I need to finish Once Upon A Time for my DD but her and the new SIL are renting our in-law apartment and my DD comes over, which I love, but it makes it hard to work on her piece. So I always have PL at hand and it's seeing more stitching time than OUAT, lol. I am enjoying this piece but really want to get OUAT finished!
So I've been working on the purpley blue motif, it's so pretty IRL.

This is what the whole piece looks like.

Happy Father's Day to all the fathers out there.
Thanks for stopping by.

Once Upon A Time, May goals

Well, I have started stitching again. Yeah!! I'm mainly working on Once Upon A Time for my daughter and now SIL. Couldn't get it done before the wedding but hope to have it done this summer. I still really enjoy working on this piece. I've been working on the lower part of her dress and the grass.
Here is where I left off over a month ago:

And this is where I am today (sorry about the fabric):

May goals:
1. The wedding and all the preparations -
2. My son graduating from High School and the Open House that followed - Yes
3. Saying good-bye to my son the day after he graduated as he is working out of state for the whole summer - Yes
4. Saying good-bye to DD #2 who also is working out of state for the whole summer - Yes
5. Have a nervous breakdown - Nope (thankfully) :)

A Wedding and A Graduation

This was our big weekend. DD got married on Saturday and DS graduated from high school on Sunday. And I managed to hold off the nervous breakdown. The 3rd picture down is a picture of my two other daughters who were Maid of Honor and a bridesmaid. Somehow I didn't get a picture of my daughter and new son-in-law together. I guess we'll have to wait for the pics from the photographer.
I learned the true definition of exhaustion this weekend and I don't want to be that busy again any time soon.
I haven't picked up a needle in a month but I'm getting together with my good friend this weekend to stitch. Can't wait, we always have a great time together and she's always such an encouragement to me!!
