    There is a girl who lives near me that is what some, in lieu of 'other names' might defne as a child/woman. She is in her early 20's and a sweet person. She lives with her aunt and uncle. She has to have 24/7 supervision to some extent and will always require that. She doesn't talk much and can do a bit of 'self care'. She carries a doll that is larger premmie size in a little carry bed like an infant seat and trys to care for it the best she can.

    I made a gift for her for her 'baby' and it is a cacoon sack like the young mothers seem to like so well for their babies now days. You just slide the baby inside and it feels more confined and 'snuggled'. It was made of varigated Caron simply soft yarn and took a skein crocheted with a size H hook. It is 8 inches across and 13 inches high. I'll be giving it to her later this afternoon. I hope she will like it. I liked the colors and rose I picked out to go with it.

    hope you like seeing the pictures.
