This is a little Granny Stripe Blankey I made for an American Girl doll. It matches Caroline's Granny Square Afghan. It is for her doll but I have a picture of Maranda with it. I don't know why.
The next picture is of my Seester and her new Husband. They got married this past week. Congratulations Misty and Kevin, I want to wish you a lifetime of Love and Happiness together. Love Ya'll!!
And this is me (in red) and my Seester after the ceremony. We have been the bestest of friends for almost 20 years now. We met while we were in High School and I dated her brother. That didn't last but our friendship has stood the tests of time. Whenever we are out shopping together it never fails that some stranger asks us if we are sisters. We just tell everyone "Yes but we have different Mom's and Dad's." Most of the time we get "Well ya'll look so much alike, I knew you were sisters." OK!
Note to self: NEVER get glasses that tint in the sun again, and DIET starts today!!
So what else has been going on around here.........
Caroline had H1N1 (swine flu) last week and we were all put on Tamiflu. I kept Maranda out of school Thursday and Friday just in case. One minute Caroline would be literally bouncing off the walls and furniture, the next laying out on the floor. She is starting to feel better finally.
I took my car in this last week to be repaired and the mechanic called 5 minutes ago to let me know it needs a new gas tank. It's only going to cost $668.00. Only! Ha! I guess it could be worse.
I snuck out to Hobby Lobby today. Walked out with $56.00 worth of yarn and plans for a new Granny Square Afghan. This one will be mine. I got the idea from an afghan on Flickr. Here it is. I love Cottage45's use of color in this one, and her other ones.
