My neighbor Hollee, a mom of triplet 1-year-olds, asked me to make her kiddos some new blankets (spurred by the loss of one blanket on vacation -- we all know how devastating that is!). She now has two new blankets for each child, one to hold and one to wash.
Something cool about the embroidered names: That font is actually Hollee's handwriting! She had her writing made into a font here, and I downloaded it, loaded it into my embroidery program, and voila!

Crocheted afghan for my father-in-law, recently diagnosed with leukemia. Here is the poem I included with it:
Things happen in this world that we just don’t understand.
So we take it to our heavenly God and leave it in His hands.
But sometimes I can’t bring myself to let it completely go.
That’s when I pick up my hook and crochet row after row.
Each stitch becomes a prayer to my awesome Lord above,
Asking Him to shelter you in his gentle, protective love.
So as you wrap this gift around you, may you feel His presence there,
And may you know so many are praising and thanking God for you in prayer.
