Calling all Grandparents!

Here is my latest project - a bag and
pillow for my darling one year old Granddaughter, Madelyn. Her parents just moved to New York, and they took her with them. Imagine that! This was my first weekend with them living in New York, and me living here in Florida. To help myself with the tremendous "missing," I sewed up a few things for her.

Let me give you a tiny bit of background - Our last name is Freebery, so I came up with this design. We have a lot of family up in New York, and there are two sets of Great Grandparents up there as well, and I fear her forgetting about her Florida Grandparents. I want to sew up a multitude of "Berry" projects so that everywhere she looks she will be reminded of her Florida Berry Grandparents. So, all that being said, if any of you have any Berry projects or ideas - send them my way! Help this very sad Grandma create a gazillion Berry projects so that I am always front and center for little Madelyn! Terrible, probably, but it can't hurt to have a constant presence, can it?

These are wonderful treasures for your family!

That is so sweet and very creative! It really should be against the law to keep grandchildren in a state other than the one where the grandma lives. :-) Mine are in Wisconsin with Lake Michigan separating us.

just gorgeous! I am sure Madelyn will love it!
I can't think of any berry ideas off the top of my head, but how about doing a "berry" search on google, in the picture area...maybe that will give you some inspiration!
