And the other
I am happy to say that she was very happy with her gift. I figured it was a safe bet though as I made her and her husband an afghan for Christmas using the same colors. In fact, when she opened this for her birthday, she grinned and said, "Oh, it's all the same beautiful colors as the blanket."
An added bonus is that my husband was quite the happy camper since his Grandma was so pleased. Definitely a win all the way around. :)
