I've made two of these diagonal washcloths in the past week. This orange/yellow/pink one for Katie's new sunny kitchen, and a green/brown/cream one for my mom.Katie loves giraffes, so I made this giraffe and tree patterned dishrag for her in a bright orange color. She doesn't have a dishwasher in her new apartment, so I imagine these washrags will get a lot of use!
On Thursday, my sister-in-law and nephew arrived from Arizona. My nephew was headed to Camp Buckskin out of Ely for a month of camping. This is a very big deal for him, his first camping experience, and the longest he has ever been away from home. Camp Buckskin is a camp for children with disabilities, such as my nephew's Asperger's Syndrome. I spent the lion's share of each day with my parents, sister-in-law, and nephew every day through Sunday. I drove my nephew to camp on Sunday along with my dad and his mom. I most sincerely hope that this camp will be a very valuable learning experience for him!
In addition to spending long days with family, I squeezed in a baby shower on Saturday with my daughter-in-law, and part of today (Monday) with my daughter. My daughter had been home for a bachelorette party honoring a friend. We had a nice lunch at Mexico Lindo before she headed out!We took this picture just before Katie headed for home today. She had a used dinette set in her car that Bob had found for her new apartment! I hope to get a chance to spend some time visiting my kids this summer. I don't get to see them nearly often enough for my tastes. My son is going to help me refine my web presence, and my daughter says she will go yarn shop hopping with me!
Tomorrow, it is back to the horse barn for another 3 1/2 hour session. I hope to get my plants into my planters, as it seems that summer has finally arrived in the northwoods!
Be grateful and see the beauty in each day!
