Oops!

When my granddaughters were little I just adored all the cute little things they wore.  I was going to make a quilt for Hannah who was 4 or 5 at the time.  Cathy and I decided that it would be great to put a few little snippets of some of her old clothes into it.  It seemed like a wonderful idea.  So I put a little piece of her old pajamas, some buttons off of a cute little dress, some lace from something, and made the letters of her name out of different pieces of clothing and appliqued them on.  When Hannah saw it, though, she let out a howl.  It wasn't appreciation, it was shock.  She couldn't believe that her clothes were somewhere else besides on her.  I suppose today now that she's older she understands but she sure didn't
then.                                            Diane

I am sure the appreciation for this treasury will grow as she gets older.I think this is a wonderful way to give of yourself to your granddaughter.

That's funny Diane, I know though she thinks it's pretty special now, what a thoughtful project.

Oh My...... I'm sure that Hannah has changed her mind about that quilt now that she is older... She was just too young to realize what you were doing... What a cute story..... Awe--KIDS!!!!! ha
