eduCATed

Sometimes it's really hard to find the right chart. Just when I think there would a myriad of choices for a particular occasion, there often turns out to be very little that's appropriate. Or I can't seem to find the appropriate thing anyway. My cousin is graduating from college with a degree in civil engineering. It's always hard to find boy designs, but for graduation designs, everything was either too sappy or way too babyish for my taste whether for boy or girl. Finally, when I wasn't looking for a design anymore, I found this cute cat design by Bent Creek in Lynn's gallery. Purrr...fect for a smarty-pants bookmark. Now I can go to the barbecue Sunday with a personalized gift to match the impersonal check (which I'm sure the grad will appreciate with or without a bookmark).

This was really a nice design for the occasion! The perfect gift for your cousin :-)

I'm sure the grad will appreciate it as much as the check, very few people take the time to add personal touches to those pretty impersonal gifts.

The design was perfectly chosen. As always, the stitch, superb. Congrats!
