    My son just called to tell me that he finished his last class, took his test, and he is now a Journeyman Carpenter!!! Yay, Travis!!

    I'm so proud of him. He works hard and kept with it until he finished.

    I need to get a quilt made for him! I have the fabric that he helped pick out for him and his girlfriend. He said he would let me know asap about when the graduation ceremony is, late summer he thinks.

    Yeah Travis!! Both of my sons are electricians and started out as journeymen. Now my oldest son passed his Masters a couple of years ago and has his own business with his uncle. This is the son that dropped out of school in his junior year! My youngest is a journeyman first class I believe. I know how much work goes into learning all the codes and everything. Good Job Travis!! I imagine carpentry has similar rules and codes to electrical work. They are all construction. My mom's family and my DH's family are all in some form of construction work.

    Congrats on a great son!!

    I am so proud of him!!

    This is the quilt that I have planned on making using Connecting Threads, After Hours. I hope it goes fast! I may decide to do a simple jelly roll pattern.
