Healing Blanket

A few days after I came home from the hospital, I received a big box in the mail from Hil's family friend, with a 'Gwen Blanket' inside. I was so excited as I have seen so many of her blankets over the years and her fine seamstress skills. I've always been envious of people who sew (just ask my mom and sister) as this is a skill that I simply don't possess. In fact, I use to pay my sister $1 per pattern in Home Economics in 7th grade to help me out. So, I was so appreciative to receive a personalized blanket from Gwen adorned with breast cancer ribbons and inspirational words and sayings such as loved, durable, thankful, I am invincible, positive, strong, resilient, winner, healing. I so love this blanket and sleep with it every night. Should probably wash it by now, but I'm not quite ready. So, thanks Gwen for your craft, care and visit this week.
