Just what was needed....

Back in March, one of our favourite girls in the family turned two. We couldn't be with her on the day, as she lives a little distance away but we sent a cute 'baby' for her. She has always loved carrying a 'baby' with her and I found a perfect one for her. We heard later that the first thing she did was 'borrow' a tea towel to wrap her baby in.


So what should a good grandmother do? Yes, make D's 'baby' a quilt. I had some cute scraps and quickly made a dolly quilt. Doctor Puppy ( my son's) had to check it out before we wrapped it up.
We received word that the first thing she did when she opened the package was wrap her baby up without even being told what to do.

And here is D with the little quilt - I am not sure why her baby didn't make it into the shot. Still it is nice to see that she likes it.


Success!
