Your cherub arrangement is sweet, marycatherine. I'm sure it looks beautiful at your brother's gravesite.
I finished the afghan for DH last night. It is my first adult-sized afghan, and my first granny square afghan, and my first time working with alpaca fibers. I love it! I'm happy it's not going far away--just across the driveway, to my husband's office above the garage. So I will be able to visit it often.
I had not planned on finishing the afghan last night, but it was a significant day. Yesterday was the one year anniversary of our move from the West Coast to our house in rural New England. Our first night in the new house everything felt so strange and I hoped we'd made the right decision. Now, a year later, our home is so cozy and wonderful. And full of all sorts of crocheted projects I've had time to work on, now that I'm not living a rat race in the big city!
