Valentines for my Sweet Grands

I'm going to my first Blog Party!!

I told Laurie I would attend her first Blog Party (my first too!) But after I saw what some of the other ladies were bringing I am somewhat embarrassed by my contribution. These ladies are fantastic. Thier pictures are gorgeous and thier blogs are amazing. But I told Laurie I would be there and like the properly bred Southern-girl that I am, well here I go--

I made blankets for my sweet grandchildren for a present. You can see those here. And since it was Valentine's Day I added some hearts that I made using one of thier Grandad's old denim workshirts and my embroidery machine. I really like them--Hope you do too.

This one is for Audrey---

This one if for Greyson---

This one is for Bridget--

And here are the blankets wrapped and ready to mail---

Greyson called and told me he liked his blanket. My daughter says the girls like their's also. It is still cold up in North GA so they will get good use of them for another month or so.

Laurie, Thank you for inviting me to your Party. I'm having fun visiting with all your friends.


  1. Hi Megan,

    Don't be shy; your post is delightful. I enjoy seeing the different ways we all celebrate Valentine's Day. Have a great day!


  2. Oh how cute those are! They are a perfect addition to the party. I love that you used the old denim shirts, and the images on them are adorable. I also love the way you put them on the blanket packages. It makes such a cute package. Thank you for contributing to the party with this very special idea! laurie

  7. It's more than cold in my part of Georgia! We're freezing and there's inches and inches of snow! I know those blankets are coming in handy.

    Your hearts are so adorable! Lucky you that you have a machine that embroiders! I'd be monogramming everything I owned LOL!


  8. Are you kidding me? This is a cute post and your grandchildren will love their hearts. Some day they will blog about the day their grandmother made these adorable hearts for them. You are setting up Valentine memories...Joan
