Today Grandma Daisy Debs had to put on her nurses apron and see what she could do for poor Teddy ! One sad little boy , showed me a hole in Teddy's foot pad , from where tiny white plastic pellets were escaping !
My daughter had thought that I,d forgotten , but I had n't and I know she will be pleased when I give her ,the baby's own book that I kept for her all these years .She can compare notes with her new baby ....Inside it , I had put in one of her first little ballet shoes....and in that brown envelope is a lock of her long , long blonde hair. I used to put in in two plaits pinned up on top of her head and tied with a pink ribbon . .... aah .....memories ...
A long time ago , Grandma Daisy worked as a little shop girl in the most beautiful shop in London .....Libertys . So I have always loved pretty Liberty Tana Lawn and have used it to make pretty dresses both for myself and my two girlies ...always saving any scraps for appliqué and patchwork.
I cut a tiny scrap to cover the repair , thus making a pretty " visible mend " ..I think Tom of Holland should be proud of me ...his wonderful journal is all about making " visible mends " to wear as a badge of honour ,so to speak . I love his website..do look him up !
..and then I stitched him a tiny love heart . Grandma Daisy loves her little Harry !
Oh ! Teddy ! Now you're famous !
