Daughter Julie's birthday is next week, so I'll be sending her some lavender cookies and some zucchini bread, along with trinkets to open. For those of you who have followed Julie's progress with her surgeries and her chemo and radiation, she is doing pretty well, all things considered. She has an aide who comes in twice a day, and great doctors. Her champion husband Jack takes her to appointments and occasionally they go to Fatz, their favorite restaurant in Rock Hill, SC.
Here is some culinary lavender purchased in Colorado that I used for the cookies:
Happy Birthday, Julie!
And linking with Fiber Arts Friday, here is my more than half way completed Seriously Simple Shawl by Wendy Johnson. Details on Ravelry are here.
