Hello everybody!  Hope this finds you all doing well and enjoying your week!  Right now I'm enjoying mine by staying inside where the air conditioning is.  I was out mowing earlier today, but it's too hot to be out there now if a person doesn't have to be. 

Thought I'd share one of the birthday items I made, that I couldn't share until now.  Adelyn's birthday party was this past Friday, so now that she has the mermaid blanket I made for her, I can share it with all of you.  I used three different colors for this afghan, and therefore had to change colors each row.  That was a bit more tedious than I'd have liked, but for my Adelyn I'll do most anything. <3

Here is the afghan right after I finished it.

And here is Adelyn, at the party, with her mermaid afghan.  The colors in this picture are more true to life than in the previous picture.

Here is a candid shot of Adelyn with the mermaid afghan.  <3

As always, I thank you for stopping by!  Have a great week!!
