a very special parcel

Cot blanket from NinnyThis very special parcel arrived in the post this week. Inside a very special crocheted gift for a very special person who will join the rest of the family on the ‘outside’ in the later half of this year.

cot blanketThis cot blanket has been hooked by my grandmother, the virgo within’s great-grandmother. Even though she lives on the other side of the continent she’ll be one of the first to hug the wee one through this blankie.  There just aren’t enough words to describe how special this is. In so many ways this blanket embodies everything I love about crafting – the creation of a physical representation of our unique love for others.
