That is the most beautiful thing I've seen all week!!!!!I’m going to Corpus Christi this weekend. It’s my middle granddaughter’s birthday. She was BJs favorite, he doted on her. She is quiet, artistic, the youngest is loud, hits the room like a sawed off shotgun blast. GD#2 was devastated when BJ died and she still has a hard time. A few weeks ago, she tearfully asked her mom, “What if Papaw forgets my birthday?”
I saved some of BJ’s shirts, intending to make quilts for the girls. Time to get busy, but not enough time to make a quilt. So I made a stuffed animal, just happens to be a lamb.
The pattern has 3 sizes, but if I cut out the small size, it destroys the other 2 sizes, so I traced it on butcher paper. I cut it out, using various shirts.

I finished it today. I found the heart at Hobby Lobby, thank you Valentines Day display. The body piece has pockets, one on each side. The green plaid was from a shirt DD picked out for him when she was in High School. He loved it. The blue piece on the neck belonged to my sister’s husband, she gave some shirts to BJ when her husband died. The lavender lining of the ears also was one of Uncle Bob’s shirt. So she gets a present from Uncle Bob and her Papaw. She is so worried that Papaw will forget her birthday, but he’s coming to the party.

Parents are enjoying making her eat some humble pie. They laugh and snicker. They will give her car back before college.Growing so fast! Hard to believe that the oldest is college age already. Love the tough love with the truck. Maybe she should take the truck to college with her instead of the little car. Waco is not that far away from you either.
