Recently I opened my email at The Green Sheep to find this note:
“Hi, my name is Mandy. An amazing woman from my church gave us one of your blankets when my first son was born. It’s beautiful, and we show it to everyone. My mother-in-law, Sandi, was especially smitten with it and has custom-ordered two blankets from you since (‘G is for Griffin‘ and ‘The Sand and the Sea‘).”
This is so fun for me! I love meeting someone new through the connection of a blanket.
Mandy was looking for a gift for her little niece and god-daughter, Roselyn. Instead of starting from scratch, I showed her some of the finished blankets in my Etsy shop. With the “Rose” in Roselyn’s name and the tiny buds on this blanket — along with the fact that her nursery is gray and pink (with elephants!) — this particular one, “Pink Posies,” was a good choice.
Mandy chose to add a monogram. I stitched on the “R,” packaged up this sweet blanket, and shipped it over to Michigan for its new owner. Keep warm, little Roselyn!
This blanket is no longer available.

JOANIE, NOT ONLY ARE YOU CREATIVE, YOU ARE AMAZING.
WHERE DO YOU FIND THE TIME ?
PROUD TO BE YOUR AUNT.
I LOOK FORWARD TO YOU EMAILS.
LOVE, AUNT MARY.
Aunt Mary, you never fail to be a big encouragement to me. I don’t consider myself to be amazing, but I DO think I have a pretty awesome bloodline ;).
That’s beautiful work, Joanie.
Thanks, Stephanie! I hope you guys are staying snug like a bug in a rug in the crazy east-coast weather!
