    Virginia, I don't suppose she gave you her phone number? If she said she'd call and didn't, wouldn't it be OK to call her and ask?

    When I had helpers, they weren't allowed to give out their phone numbers (policy of the company they worked for, to protect the workers from being deluged with calls from clients at all hours) but some did. Clients could call the company if someone didn't do something she stated she would do--like call, or show up for work.

    I realize that the workers got paid entirely too little but I did call the company in a case like yours. Of course on a holiday weekend the company wouldn't have been responding but if you have the worker's number, you could certainly call her, seems to me. After all, you want to make your plans and aren't able to if she doesn't let you know her plans.

    Cherie,
    We had way too much rain at the beginning of the season and it damaged a lot of crops which have never recovered well. Now it is dry enough so we started irrigating a field of beans. We have sandy soil on most of the farm so it usually handles too much rain. But not this year. Things are just not right with the weather world.

    Wishing you an early Happy Birthday! ..”Let them eat cake” seems a perfect thing to say in this case!

    Agate, I know I am stubborn, but I have called her so many times that I am now just tired of it. If she doesn't want to come so bit it, but I wish she would just say so. If I call she will just beat around the bush about when she might can come. I just don't want to hear it.

    Oh, I didn't realize you were dealing with that sort of person. I've had similar experiences and know what you mean. It's easier sometimes just to let things be.

    This is the blanket I made for my grandson. He received it today though a warm summer day may not have been the best time for this....

    And this is William at 5 months:

    What a beautiful blanket for your beautiful grandson, William!

    You created a treasured heirloom! It's lovely!

    And just perfect for when it isn't Summer.

    Agate, he is so cute. What a treasure you have to look forward to. I think the blanket is really pretty and cool weather is just around the corner. William is lucky to have a Grandmother like you.

    I agree, Agate, you made a beautiful blanket that I hope they give to him some day for his child.

    Is he big for his age? I have no idea anymore how big babies are at any milestone.

    Very nice work, Agate. The blanket turned out beautiful and I'm sure it will be treasured.
    Willian is adorable and has grown so much since you last posted a picture!

    Thank you!

    I was out of practice in making this type of blanket though I made quite a few of them years ago, and I wasn't overjoyed with the way the blanket turned out. I'm doing him another blanket that is going very fast.

    ANN, he was premature and so had some catching up to do but I believe that now his weight is right on the "normal" curve.

    I doubt that the blanket will survive his childhood but you never know. I was really astonished not so long ago when I found a couple of afghans I'd made for my kids when they were still kids were still in use in my married son's household.
