    Smile What a surprise package!

    My dear friend received a box in the mail with 4 beautiful fabrics and a pattern. She couldn't figure out who would have sent such a lovely surprise until she reached the bottom of the box and there was the picture of her DIL's ultrasound.

    Pure joy....first grandchild!

    Her DIL's mother knits, so she received yarn, pattern and of course the picture.

    Thought I'd share her happy moment.

    What a wonderful way to share such great news!! I'm assuming the pattern is something for the baby, nice hint.

    What a great idea. That is a DIL who is tuned in to her relatives.

    That is such a wonderful way to send good news, plus the quilt will be what they want and well received.

    What a creative way to find out your going to be a grandparent. For us my DSIL came over Christmas Eve and put a big sign in our yard that said MERRY CHRISTMAS LOVE BABY ANDERSON. al of a sudden I am on the phone calling my daughter who has been trying for the past couple years to have a child. Package arrives in August and found out we also have one in September . Enjoy your new grand baby !!!!

    What a great way to annouce a coming baby..my DD wrapped a little box with a tiny hair bow in it and put it under the Christmas tree...I must say that it took me a couple of minutes to figure it out..thought she had done what I've done so many times, put the wrong name on the pkg..but finally I realized that we were going to be grandparents...coulnd't have been happier...

    Great idea!!!! DIL is wonderful. Not only did she ask Grandma for a quilt but she provided the fabric and pattern so she got what she wanted.
