It's tough work being a kitten though, especially one who is captured and then pampered to the point of exhaustion. He just couldn't stay awake any longer...
Now we hope we can catch his two siblings who are still outside!

|Friday, May 17th was one of the greatest, proudest days in my life. And one of the worst. Ellen, after a very long road that included several colleges, major changes, a life changing diagnosis of Celiac Disease, and some time off to regroup, graduated from Rowan College with a degree in Law and Criminal Justice. She graduated Magna Cum Laude (just .01 from Summa!) with a 4.0 for her last semester. She was accepted to grad school and is leaving with a job as a case worker. I'm so incredibly proud of Ellen and all of her accomplishments! Here she is receiving her diploma...|
|The new graduate!|
|Emma and me|
I was going to make her a quilt, but my mom was making one for her. I decided that a quilt made by her great-grandmom would be very special, so chose to crochet an afghan for her. Had she been born on time, I would have had it finished, but since she came early, she had to wait for it. (Not that she noticed!) I didn't use a pattern, just a tutorial on how to make hexagon crochet blocks from Lavender and Wild Rose. I arranged the colors differently, trying to make them resemble roses surrounded by leaves. I love how it turned out...I hope Emma does!
Here's a little closer shot so you can see the blocks...
