We were out shopping the other day and stopped in a goodwill. I found this little baby quilt there for $3.99.
This is a handmade baby quilt, made from little panels with a drawing and the first line of a nursery rhyme.
It is well made and clean and cute.
Of course, I bought it. It’s not really my style, but it only took a short look to see what a treasure it was. It will go on to Linus next year, with quilts I make. It just wasn’t donated to the right charitable group and I’m going to make that right.
But, it made me think that this could be one of mine. We make quilts and give them away and a little part of ourselves goes with them. We don’t know what will happen to them. We don’t know if the recipients will love and keep them, like my Mom did my good baby blanket, or whether they will eventually be donated to goodwill or used as a dog blanket. But, they are gifts of ourselves, just like this one was.
Okay, enough of that. There are plenty of other things to worry about at this season. I guess I just let that one carry me away because I’m working on baby quilts.
Be well. Have a great Tuesday. Lane
