I absolutely love homemade things like this so I was immediately excited. "Did you make this?" I asked.
My mom replied with, "I didn't make it, Your grandma Prescott made it."
My eyes well up with tears. My grandma Prescott has passed away 8 years ago. I still miss her all the time. She was an amazing grandma. I love her very much. I still think about her all the time and hope she knows how much I love her. Her death was a shock to us. I never got to say goodbye.
My mom said that before she died she knitted these blankets. She wanted to give each of us a blanket for are first born child. When she died my mom got a blue and a white one. When she found out I was having a boy she was so happy to give me the blue one.
My grandma always made us these wonderful bedspread quilts. I absolutely loved these blankets. I still remember the one she gave me that was all pastel colored blocks. I LOVED that blanket. Now Max gets his own special blanket. This really means a lot to me! I love you grandma. Thanks mom for saving this special blanket for me and for Max. I'll be sure to tell him what a special grandma I had and what a special grandma he has.
The blanket actually is blue with white pearl shimmers in it. You can't see the speckle of white in the picture. It really is a beautiful blanket.
