Over the past seven years we have been given many gifts in remembrance of Clara. Angels, jewelry, flowers, tokens at the cemetery. This year when we were back in South Dakota we were surprised with the beautiful heartwork. This blanket is absolutely everything Clara from the pink butterflies to the green stripes. It reminds me of her flower play mat with the crinkly butterfly. It reminds me of the lovely white dress she work for Easter, our family pictures, and as her last outfit.
We will forever treasure the blanket/quilt. You know what makes it even more awesome?! It was on display in a South Dakota fabric store for several weeks. Even though it is years later, someone still took the time to share Clara’s memory with the world and then give this gift to us to treasure. <3
