I store all kinds of things about cooking, quilting and some surprises in my cupboard. Check it out.

Tag Archives: 85th birthday

Over the past weekend, I celebrated my 85th birthday.  One of my gifts was a shawl from my younger daughter.  She used a pattern for a Feather and Fan Comfort Shawl by Sarah Bradberry, found on ravelry.com

Her yarn was a Caron Big Cake in the Toffee Brickle color.  As a special treat, she bought a key ring from the Red Cloud Indian School Heritage Center, made by one of the students, and converted it into a shawl pin.

The pin is particularly dear to me because my daughter and I regularly knit for the children of Pine Ridge in South Dakota.

I’m very happy to have this beautiful addition to the collection of shawls my daughter has made for me.  It’s so nice and warm!
