Karen invited me and Grandma Delores to help host a team dinner last week. Delores spent hours decorating Karen's home, finding just the right tablecloths, napkins, and black forks.
Bradleigh and Adriana have known each other since Kindergarten at St. Stan's
A surprise visitor, Nev Dragovic, their summer VB coach, showed up to provide some encouragement!
Karen's been eyeing the stacks and stacks of T-Shirts in Bradleigh's closet for weeks and I suggested that we make a quilt or comfy throw that she could take on the bus or stash in her duffle bag. I've seen lots of fleece blankets and flannel pillow cases strewn on the floors of cafeterias when these girls define their spot in school gymnasiums for tournament play. So, Karen and I cut the fronts off 15 T-Shirts, shopped for coordinating fabric and stabilizer, then laid out the design! We we spread it out over one of my fleece throws to determine the right size.
The finished quilt recalls lots of tournaments, Bantam-Bengal Rivalry and Snake River Volleyball
So last night we draped this quilt over Bradleigh as she tried to explain to us how she hurt her big toe!
Just one way to show Grandma love to my favorite granddaughter!
