Memories Of My Grandmother …

babydoll handmade from Grandma collage labeledWhile looking in a bin in my closet, for toys for George and Jack, I came across a baby doll from when I was a kid.  I have had this doll so long I do not even remember when I got it.

The Grandmother it came from was great at knitting and other related activities, though it was my other Grandmother who did the crocheting and quilting.  While this doll may not have all the fancy functions the dolls in the stores do today, I remember loving the size and how it felt holding it.  It was the perfect size for my little hand and arms.  It also had a built in blanket that make it look like a baby snuggled down in your arms.

As I have gotten older, I am amazed by exactly what she was able to make.  They may not have had a lot of money, but if you gave her some yarn she could make some of the most beautiful things.
