Three Bags Full

Seen here are the strips I've completed so far.  There's still room in the box I'm shipping them in so I will continue to make more.  I've also begun a black and yellow blanket for another cause.

A Happy Ten

It's so hard to believe that ten years has gone by.  Michael is a very happy child.  For his birthday we adopted two kittens from the local Humane Society.  His is the black and white one he's named Penny and the black one is her sister Shadow.  I pray Michael will always have joy.  He certainly has brought a lot of happiness to us:~)
