Elise has received many wonderful gifts in her short little lifetime. Today, she got a really cool one in the mail from my aunt, Gail, my mom’s sister who lives in California. She decided to take up sewing again after not having sewed anything in the last 30 years. She just finished an adorable blanket for Elise. Not just any blanket though. This one has a story! It’s made out of Hawaiian shirts and has a hand-sewn sun in the middle of it. How cool is that?! Elise just happened to be wearing a dress today that matched the blue/Hawaiian theme of the blanket. What a nice present! THANKS GAIL!
