My darling granddaughter Aberdeen has moved to a "junior bed." If this baffles you as it did me when I first learned the concept, what it means is that her crib has been converted -- lowered and the side rail removed -- so she can get in and out. When her brother made his move, I provided a new quilt, of course. So I thought I would do the same for Miss A.
More years ago than I can remember, my sistah Jan and I swapped widdle biddy bwocks, i.e., 4-1/2" finished. They were made from 30s repos on white and we each made a pair of identical blocks and swapped. The yield was fondled and admired for a long time and finally made into a top and the machinist worked her magic on it for me just before Christmas. I delivered it this past week on our trip south and Miss A seemed pleased; her parents, even more so.
