This year, as we light the first candle of Hanukkah on Thanksgiving, I am going to give my granddaughters something truly unique: a book I wrote for them about Memory Quilts.
The idea came originally from my son who wondered if I could tell his children family stories as part of my writing?
That lead me to the grandiose idea of a storybook full of family stories, but good sense told me to start small and so I began with the story about my personal memory quilt.
Maya and Hailey will each get a copy of the book and a personalized book mark made from fabric that relates to the story. Isn’t that cool?
