Gracie's Blanket

So my sister was in the process of making a blanket for Gracie but Gracie died before it was done. I know it must have been really hard for her to finish it but she got it done just in time for me to get it for Gracie's due date. She even worked on it over the weekend when she had a migraine.

I'm wrapped up in it right now as I type. I really love it, it turned out so good. I'm sad that she didn't get to wrap up in it. It would have been the perfect size for swaddling. And I'm sad that she didn't get to get attached to it. I'm sad that we didn't get to hunt around for it before each nap time and bedtime because she wouldn't be able to sleep without it. It's her blankie that Auntie Shell made and she didn't even get to use it.

My mom brought it hot off the sewing machine, when she came Monday, Gracie's due date. I feel like everyone is just watching to see how I'm doing so I didn't want to get all worked up about it. But now that I'm alone with it I'm in tears and I'm finally wrapping my self up in it. It so soft and cuddly and it would have been a perfect blankie for her. I know she would have loved it. Thanks Auntie Shell!!
