In addition to my mother turning 89 yesterday, February 21, my granddaughter Elizabeth (#6314)
had her 9th birthday. She is holding the obnoxious ugly sock monkey she asked me to make her for her birthday. My mother has over 100 direct descendants. I think Elizabeth is about her 30th great grandchild. I did not go to my mother's yesterday with all of the crowds so Elizabeth and I are going down today. We always get a Great Grandma, Elizabeth picture. Since this could easily be the last, Elizabeth got to skip school to go visit her.
One sock I worked up yesterday. Have the other started. I will probably finish it today.
Another pair of special order heart socks. She wanted lavender with white, but the colors just melded together with no distinction so I changed it to lavender and purple. Will make a reverse pair for her also. Was just waiting for a decision before I began. I should actually do them today so I can get them into the mail.
My back yard. I wanted a before picture before anything blooms. My Curly Willows are finally beginning to bud.
