Knit and Crochet Afghan
I have been working on what felt like forever to finish an afghan my mom and I collaborated on for my SIL's sister's bridal shower. Saturday was her shower and it was a big hit. She seemed to really like it. I was so relieved. I was very nervous waiting for her reaction.

(My photo software isn't working right...it is freezing up when I try to resize my pictures.... So if you don't mind you'll have to check it out on my blog http://vickiknits.blogspot.com It's in the Stitches post.)

Wow! Great job and how neat that it's from two people in her life who obviously care so much about her.
