I just can't emphasize how valuable I think it is to MAKE A GIFT...with your own two hands. Even if it's a simple project like a receiving blanket for a new baby. Planning it, picking out the fabric, washing it, hemming it...
|My sister Ronda made some flannel receiving blankets for Warren when he was born...and the green frog blanket was his early favorite.|
In July, I wrote about how I tried to make some new blankets, but Warren rejected them. So I trie to trick him by using thrift-store blankets, combined with pieces of his original "b's" to create a new Army of Blankets... (read here)
|The question at the time was whether or not Warren would accept those new blankets...|
|This picture should answer that question!!|
|Now, the first thing he does when he comes here is to run back into his room, and gather up A DOZEN of his b's...then, he runs down the hall (it takes two trips) and piles them in his favorite chair.|
|His thinking now, instead of "where is THE blanket"? Seems to be, "the more the merrier..."|
|At this point, he isn't happy unless he has an ARMLOAD of blankets...|
