Thank you, Grandma!



When I purchased my 6x6 pad of BasicGrey Nook & Pantry, I knew I wanted to use it to make cards for my grandmothers. Last Friday two twin size quilts arrived in the mail for Julia and Kathryn. My grandma has made each of her grandchildren (12 total) a quilt when we each married and then a baby quilt for each of her great-grandchildren (10), then a quilt for each great-grandchild. Here are J&Ks second quilts! I still have my twin size quilt her mother made for me ("Mamaw") out of squares from old draperies and clothing. It is one of my most prized possessions.

I needed to make a thank you note for Grandma, and out came the BG paper :) I am still battling this cold or whatever, so I needed some serious mojo. I found it here at dougnat diaries.

I'll be back tomorrow with a new card for Cuttlebug Challenges!

Granny chic is so big now, isn't it?!!

My ma-maw crocheted a baby quilt for Ian when he was born. By the time Lilly arrived, ma-maw had passed. So imagine my surprise when, at my baby shower, my mom presented me with this gorgeous, white, crocheted baby quilt for Lilly. Ma-maw made it before she died and gave it to mom to give me for my next baby.

There wasn't a dry eye in the place.

Wow, how wonderful for them to have a treasure like that! They (and you) are so fortunate to still have (great) grandparents. Enjoy every minute of them!

PS: I told Angela to put this BG pack back on the shelves before inventory time. Can you believe it? It's just not "me" paper. :)
