Just Do the Right Thing...

Amongst the daffodils is the granny top finished...Thank you all for the feedback.

My daughter-in-law is turning 30 on Wednesday. 
It coincides with her one year celebration of being drug free.

They love her so much that they put on this party.

Going to bed now...a wonderful day after all.
