Just remembering

Today I thought of my grandmother and sitting with her in her living room.  We were putting together a quilt that my great grandmother had made the rings for a double wedding ring quilt.  I remember her saying we are putting this together for you to have.  We should only have good thoughts when we are pieceing these quilts.  Our hands will be holding the future.  Only good thoughts should surround the people you love.  You want to sew good thoughts with your stitches.

It is truly amazing the difference in rasing children.  Until you are in the middle of it, you don't realize how different boys and girls are to raise.  With little girls there is talk of fairies, Cinderella, dresses and shoes.  With little boys, sometime you close your eyes and hope they will be ok--as they pour coffee for the first time, jump and bounce from couch to chair then back again, But there are some universal similarities:  they both want to be loved and accepted as they are.  They want someone to just take the time to listen, read them a story, laugh at their jokes and see the world through their eyes.  Someone that sees the wonder of the world with them.

Two year old epilepsy

I never knew it was common for children to develop epilepsy around the age of two until my grandson suddenly started having seizures.  He had had no sign of the seizures.  But we have been assured this is not uncommon and that he will probably outgrow just as suddenly as they came on. 

this is the blanket that matches the sweater I had already posted.  The little outfit is a vintage pattern that I found on the internet.  These were made for a special baby that although I have not met him yet I am so very happy he has been born.  I spent lots and lots of hours with his father when he was a little boy.  I wish that we were closer so I could visit but hopefully soon.  His birth has been a long awated event and will bless his family so very much.

Finally finished

This is finally finished.  I will be uploading pictures of the blanket and pants that are included in the set.  This was for a very special baby.  His grandparents have been waiting a long time for him.
