Story Clouds

I haven't made a baby blankie in a long time......I just didn't feel like it. Perhaps I was lacking inspiration, perhaps I was distracted by other past-times. 

But just recently Heidi sent me the sweetest message about the baby blankies that I made for her 2 children Sam and Sophie (thank you Heidi). They were themed - one Little Red Riding Hood and the other The 3 Little Pigs.

Heidi said that she had given them to the children to play with recently and that they had loved to tell the stories on the blankies......or clouds as they called them. I hope that Heidi doesn't mind, but I love the idea of creating story clouds.......so if anyone can suggest a story for me to tell I will make a new "cloud"!


The Three Little Pigs


Red Riding Hood 1


Rapunzel

They're so cute! How 'bout Hansel and Gretel (could have fun with that edible house) or Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (all those little dwarfs and they're Happy, Bashful, etc. faces)???

Love them! Maybe you should come and run the Midnight Sun marathon with me next summer? The 10 k for me. Plan to run it on 55.

Look lovely and cozy....
And Seville in september is perfect, not too hot and probably no rain...I was there for work, so only cold enjoy some hours....

I think there should be a jungle-themed one, with a parrot and a monkey. The kids can make their own stories up, no need to stick to the classic fairytales. ;)

One with a dolphin, a starfish and a turtle?

I love your blankets and especially imagining children making up their own stories with them. I think Hansel and Gretel could be a fun one, with the witch hiding and all the sweets! I saw a yarn shop in downtown Camden this past week and thought of you... I didn't have my camera with me or I would have taken a picture for you!

Hi Di, I love the blanket, as usual it is perfect! Yes my parents loved Scotland, they have been a few times and always want to go back, they did say it was very very wet!

Grace still has the one you made for her...one well travelled blanket!

Becca said...

Wow, Di, these are amazing! Such beautiful, creative work!

Thanks so much for your kind comment on my blog a couple of weeks ago. You have been so friendly with your comments over this last year and every time they mean so much to me, but never more than at a time like this. Every word, every gesture, means so much. Thank you.
