Baby afghans...........

 This pink baby blanket I made for my Niece who is expecting a little girl in October. It's the first great-grandchild for my mom and the first great niece for me and my brothers and their families. I am excited to meet this baby!  This blanket is made with Bernat Baby coordinates.
 This is a yellow baby blanket I made for my niece but I don't like it so much. It is heavy and too thick. 
These are 100% cotton washcloths for the new baby! They were so fun to make. I hope my niece likes them.

I also made another baby blanket for a friend. It is the same color as this afghan, and she sent me a note saying they all liked it!

Yarn candles

I bought these candles because they are made to look like yarn! I think they are unique and pretty.

I bought them  and with my order they sent me a sample of the body bar. I also have to say that the customer service was absolutely excellent.  I had one issue and they called me immediately after I sent  a message and corrected my issue. Not to mention that my candles shipped in a couple days!! Nicely boxed and wrapped and they used all recyclable packaging!

Today is my Mom's 85th Birthday.  I took my mom, my boy and my girl out to Red Lobster for lunch for Mom's birthday (hubby had to work). Red Lobster was her choice and we all enjoyed our lunch.

I tried to find Star Gazer Lilies for her, but didn't have any luck. So, I bought her some beautiful red Roses. She liked them, and one of my brothers and his wife found her a beautiful bouquet of Lilies!

Mom is continues to do well.  Her hip feels great a year later!  She is settled into her new home and likes it, she said it finally feels like home.  However, she needs a new shoulder. It's not a rotator cuff, but a shoulder replacement. A few years ago she feel in a mall parking lot and hurt her shoulder. Now, it needs to be fixed, and she's thinking of having it done soon.
