Surprise From My Granny






I went to see my Granny again the other day. I found her in the kitchen cooking her a little lunch. She had a little pan of okra frying on the stove and was making herself a little salad. She was very glad to see me. She had made me something. Well, actually it was for "My Sweet Baby Grandson" that is due in December. She had made a baby quilt for him. She asked me to give it to "My Sweet Daughter, Mandy" for her. It is so beautiful & simple, but just to know that she made it means the world to me. Granny is about to turn 95 next week and still quilting! Mandy came over today. I haven't got to see her in a couple of weeks. She is so cute. She hasn't put hardly any weight on at all. She is all baby. He will be here before we know it. I gave her the quilt and she was so excited. My Granny made this little quilt in about half of a day. Just think, my 95 year old granny made this baby quilt for her great, great, grandson that is not even born yet. She is really amazing!

That is so sweet and will always mean the world to Mandy. Trevlyn has a quilt that someone made for him before he was born, and still almost 17 years later it stays with him on his bed. I used to wrap him several times in it, and now it just barely covers him from his feet to his knees. Isn't it amazing how fast they grow up?

I am sure that quilt which was stitched with love will be a treasured keepsake!

What an absolutely precious gift! I can't wait to see a photo of the baby all snuggled up in it.

What a treasure. And how encouraging is that to see a woman enjoying quilting at 95. There is hope in the world.

All the best.

Oh T, this brings a little tear to my eye. Goodness. I hope you've got a label on this.

By the way, my Grandma was born in 1912, too! She's still alive and kickin'. ;)

Good Genes Love, *karendianne.

I, too am so proud of Granny! Thank you for visiting her regularly. I wish I were closer so I could see her too. She never really changes, does she? Amazing, that Cherokee strength! The blanket is perfect for baby! Love, Brenda
