Favorite Makeover...

In 1979 Barbara Tenney made a baby blanket for Tim's second youngest brother Steve. When Kendrick was a baby Tim's mom sent it to us. Ten years later Jensen claimed the blanket his own. He has slept with it every night since.

When the back started getting holey and the batting bunched up at the corners, I knew it was time for a Grandma Make Over. With tender loving care she disassembled the frayed favorite and then sewed a new soft back to the existing front.

Jensen was unaware his new blanket sat wrapped under the tree until Christmas morning. He said Grandma made his Christmas and that this was his favorite gift.

That's so sweet! My mom did the same thing to my baby blanket on my 18th birthday. she left one corner open so I could see what it "used to be." It's with Emma and I am so happy to still have it. I hope Jensen keeps it forever and gives it to his baby boy (or girl) someday.
