Made with love by Gran

My mum made this quilt for Caleb. Isnt it lovely? I want to get into quilting, even took some classes a while back, but it just doesnt appeal to me as much as stitching
I love the label on the back.
A quieter week this week. Caleb has really bad skin at the moment after a bad reaction to cream prescribed for his infected cradle cap. His face and head look terrible. Im sad for him but glad it doesnt seem to bother him. We see a dermatologist on Monday. Poor baby. Always something for Mummy to worry about!

In other news, DH's grandpa passed away this week. Although we're sad, it was expected, he lived in a nursing home in Bath with his wife. Its strange because for years it was DH's Granny that we thought would go first, shes so frail, has severe dementia and is really just existing, if you know what i mean. Gramps was always fine, physically and mentally. He just declined really quickly this month and ended up dying first. He was a man with a strong faith and will be in a better place now that's for sure. So DH's folks fly over from Canada on Monday for the funeral on Wednesday which DH will fly down south for too. Then the inlaws are coming up for a weeks visit after that.

I like you made one quilt in my life, I have the desire...just doesn't appeal to me either :o/
Oh well....stitching will fill my walls and heart!

My deepest sympathy on the loss of your husband's grandfather. I know from your words he is at peace and in glory!

Beautiful quilt! Sorry to hear about the loss in your family. Our thoughts are with your husband and family.

Infected cradle cap? I didn't know that could happen! Yikes!

Sorry to hear your sad news (((((hugs))))).

Such a pretty quilt. Would love to give it a go but then a new must-have cross stitch pattern comes out..... LOL Poor little Caleb - hope the dermatologist appointment goes well. :0)

Cute quilt! I like stitching better than quilting. I'm sorry to hear about your hubby's grandfather. I'll include him on our church prayer list.

Lovely quilt! I thought about getting back into it aswell, but it just doesnt do it for me like stitching does.
Sorry for your loss. My grandad passed before my nana, but my nana went downhill after he left us and dementia came on rather quickly for her, she was so lost and missed him terribly. I miss them both tremendously, but I know they are both together now and soo happy.

Sorry to hear about your DH's grandfather. My condolances to you and your family.

Beautiful quilt, I am sure that it will become a family treasure.

Skin conditions are the worst in babies, mine has itchy dry skin which she keeps scratching. The extra dry weather dosn't help!
