I finished the blanket ~ yeah!




This is an arrangement of fresh flowers I arranged today to make Izzy's therapy room look more Spring-ie!

This is some of my boyds bears I have collected, along with some of the believe signs that I am now collecting and love (also in Izzy's therapy room).

I love the blanket! I've been wanting to make one of those for some time now. The flowers in Izzy's room look great. They are sure to brighten her spirits. :-)

The blanket looks great. I enjoy making those--I made one for all my kids and my nieces and nephews. It's been awhile since I've done it though. Have a great weekend.

ANNIE!! *Yes, I'm screaming, LOL*!!! You have REALLY gotta stop this! Guess what? I collect Boyd's Bears ~ Resin and Stuffed! I'm hearing the Twilight Zone Music again, LOL!!

Loved the blanket! Sadie will only use fleece blankies due to her sensory issues in the past. Hope the basket gets auctioned off for a good amount!!

Pretty flowers, too! We were just at Lowe's this afternoon, smelling all the flowers, LOL!

Have a good weekend!

You are sweet, and thank you for the apology, but not to worry, Annie...

I wanted the truth, and that is what people spoke -- from their hearts and from their personal experiences/history...

It was a bit hard to hear, but it all helped me grow tremendously and let go of a very difficult situation...

My intentions in paying his year's worth of overdue property taxes (so he could avoid going into foreclosure) were good, but it backfired very painfully.

Although he chose to accept the money, he resented it -- and me -- and our relationship ended quite bitterly, with me crying and begging for forgiveness and him slamming the door on me emotionally...

With the note, I just wanted to let go and be done with it... I knew he couldn't/wouldn't pay me back, and I didn't want to wait for a promise that would only be broken...

Never again will I try to rescue someone, though. I learned a very hard lesson...

Hope this isn't t.m.i. !
Wish me the best for 'next time' and that I be a stronger, wiser person...

p.s. Hope the tornadoes are over !!!

I can't believe it only took an hour to make that blanket ! You are a whiz !

Boy, I don't know Loving Annie but it sounds like she went through a pretty tough ordeal. Poor thing.

Anyway, I wanted to tell you I think the blanket is adorable and I'm completely ashamed to say I do NOT know how to make these cute fleece blankets. Now why is that? I think I just don't know where to find instructions and I'm totally instruction driven.
