Found a ton of free knitting patterns!
Guess I should list people...

DH - 40 & USCG
DS - 16 and knows everything - Autism and Taurus
DS - 14 Autism, Gemini and current obsession is riding the bus
Mom - 63 - loves turtles but has just about every one available, started with flamingos when brother bought yard flamingos because every grandma needs yard flamingos
Dad - 67 - royal PITA - don't even know where to begin
Brother - 38 & either has everything or can buy anything
SIL - same as above
Nephew - almost 10 - going on big trip with Grandma next year - for their 10th birthday anywhere in CONUS
Nephew - almost 6 - loves elephants
Other SIL & BIL only exchange with kids - Nieces 10 & 6
other BIL & SIL only exchange with kids - Nephew - 5
MIL & FIL - retired & very sick (long story)
Grandma & Grandpap - she quilts
Grandma - almost 93 & dementia...

I think those are all the people for right now.
Time to put on the thinking cap.

There are also several friends in the "I saw this and thought of you" category

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.
