we lived beside an elderly widow who made beautiful quilts. She and i became very close..
my son came to think of her as another Grandma. This was a gift for my husband and i for
always helping her out being that she was alone. The quilt is on our bed throughout the winter
months. It takes the chill off on those damp nights.
When i went for my last ultrasound when i was pregnant they told me i was having a girl!
So my neighbour the whole time i was expecting worked on this pretty piece. After i had my "boy" she brought the quilt over with a matching pillow and said "You told me you were going to be having a girl!"
Well i had a few girl things with me at the hospital waiting for baby... and one of the things were these adorable baby shoes..
to be a girl. His favourite part of the story is when he was delivered and the doctor announced it's a boy! After that the nurse said to me "Pamela i wish you could have seen your husband's face when the doctor said "it's a boy!" His jaw just hit the ground!
So these shoes hold fun memories for Sam to pass onto his kids...
I'm joining the party over at The House in the roses for Show off your Cottage Monday!
