Hearts to Hands

Our extended families have been growing lately, with several little ones being born to our nieces and nephews. Such joyful occasions! My sister-in-law found some things that I had made for her children about thirty years ago and has given them to her son's twin boys to use now.

I recently came across baby blankets my mother-in-law had made for my sons when they were babies. I also have a small quilt and a couple of wall hangings that I made for the boys when they were born and am holding onto those for grandchildren of my own.

I was thinking that I don't really have any toys or equipment left from the days of babyhood, having given it all away for someone else to use. But what we did hold onto were the handmade items.

How wonderful to be able to pass these things down to a new generation. They have held up through the years of use and being packed away and can now be used by new young families.

Next time you think about making a handmade gift for an expected little one, I hope you will do it. Future generations will thank you!


  1. Yes, passing on handmade items such as your beautiful quilts is the perfect way to show and share love.

  2. This really made me stop and think, all of the things we had for the children over the is the handmade ones we treasure for generations.
