    This quilt is for a 3 yr old boy who was recently diagnosed with cancer. He is related to a friend of my DGD. She asked me to make it for him so he can stay warm while he is sick. How could I say no to that? It's fleece and soft and warm. He starts treatment in a few days, so I wanted something fast that he could have before then. It's ready to go out in the mail tomorrow.

    What a happy blanky. You are so sweet and kind, but you look terrified in front of the camera ;-)


    ps. I don't see the problem you mentioned earlier, and I know they won't.

    It's gorgeous...so happy and bright. The perfect thing for a small person to wrap himself in while undergoing treatment. Hospitals are often so cold (not to mention scary)...a lovely, practical and very special gift.

    LOL Nah, not terrified. What you are seeing is the grip of fibromyalgia from losing track of time and spending too long at the sewing machine. It's a pretty common look for me these days. LOL.. I don't notice while I am enthralled with my sewing, but man once I stand up, whammy!!!
    It's lovely to have something I love doing so much that I can forget the pain and such for a while. You will not hear me complaining about it, for sure! Hugs and smilessssss, wildlinda

    Fleece will be perfect. My friend used to get so cold doing her chemo treatments. That was sweet of your DGD to think of him and so sweet of you to make it. It really is cute...a perfect cuddle up quilt.

    My 7 yr old DGD Olivia asked me to do this. It says on the back, "For Ryan, from Olivia and her family." I didn't put the year on this one, because I know it's a year the family will never forget as it is.

    Olivia is a special little girl for sure and Ryan will love this to cuddle with. It is beautiful and he will love it. All those happy animals to keep him warm. You are pretty special too for making this for him. Wishing all good things for this family!

    Your gd is a special little girl to care so much for someone else, but it is clear where she learned that from, "you". Know it will be a comfort in the coming days for Ryan.
