Drawing Challenge: Blanket

Handmade quilts by my grandmother's grandpeople.

restoration hardware - but you get the idea :)

Makes me think of moms and babies,
Of grandmas and hand stitched gatherings
Of ladies around a big table,
Chatting and assembling
The scraps and memories of fabric worked to the bone.

We have alot of faux fuzzy lamby blankets around the house.
We buy them at the store.
But they are warm and cozy and make you look like a giant teddy bear
in soft browns and creams.

Good thing too because it is still freezing here. A fresh blanket of snow the last few days.Christmas like.
We live under piles of blankets to read a book, watch a movie, and I wrap one around my neck like a shawl like some old woman from a nursey rhyme as I walk from one end of the house to the other.

I didn't draw but let my great grand ladies speak for me with their beautiful stitches and floral remnants.
I am lucky to have what's left of them.
