Okay, long story short. When I moved into Ross's home I gave almost all my possessions to my children. No need to have double of everything. As the years past many of the family treasures were lost due to a long list of unfortunate circumstances. However the one thing that I didn't give away were the baby boxes. For each child I had a tote full of memories from birth to the time they left home. I had also made one for myself of things from my childhood to current. My two boys were visiting a few days ago and they both seemed so well adjusted and mature it seemed like a good time to give them their boxes. They had a blast looking at all the memories. Anyway....When I opened my box I found these! I thought they were long gone! I almost cried.
My mom made this for me when my daughter (the oldest,26) was born. I used it with all three children. It's just a panel quilt but it was well loved by all.
And then there's this one that's even older. I made this in a needle work class while in high school. It too was survived usage from all my kids. All the new things we buy can't replace the memories of these two items.
