Roadway Quilt

Quote of the Day:

"A house needs a grandma in it."

 Author: Louisa May Alcott

This was a small blanket that I made for my 2 year old grandson. It is a small quilt that is about 1 yard square. The center is a "road" that he can drive his cars on. You could also put little houses and trees and such things to broaden the imagination. The black is just a black material I had left over. 

Thank you for letting me share.

4 Generation Photo

Quote of the Day:

God's most precious work of art is the warmth and love of a Grandmother's heart.
Author Unknown

I so will be doing this one. What makes it difficult is that my daughter and granddaughter live in Germany.  So that one will take some time.  But I have other grandchildren close and it will be fun to do this for my mother.

We are in the process of doing this for our mother. 

The top is my mother, my youngest sister, my niece and my great niece. We fortunately have a photographer in the family and that is how we got the black background. But any dark sheet or light sheet would do. We also planned what we would wear. I don't think that's necessary either. The bottom is me and my mother. The pictures of each of us was photo shopped into the empty frame like the one that I am holding. I now have to get with my children and get the empty-frame pictures so that I can put them in the empty slot. It was a great idea and is so far a hit in my family.
