Needlework Tuesday - A Virtual Road Trip
Yesterday there was a special treasure awaiting me when I went to my mailbox. Norman and his blankie, or more formally, Norman's Blankie by Cheryl Coville, was hiding in there. Cheryl, also known as Grandma Coco, has written and illustrated this wonderful picture book. It tells the story of a quilt that Norman was given as an infant. As he grows and gets older, so does his quilt. In fact his quilt gets rather frayed on the edges, but his mommy knows how to deal with that.
Cheryl has donated the use of her book to Fun with Books, an organization in the counties of Leeds and Grenville (eastern Ontario) that distributes books to children in need of reading material, free of charge. Over the seventeen years of their operations, they have delivered over a half a million books.
Waffle Stitch - this went quite well, no tricks required.
