vintage baby blankets

As I sewed up hems on a stack of lightweight baby blankets for a local maternity clinic ministry,
using fabrics I'd been given to use for the purpose,
I felt a little sad that these rough flour sacks would be used on newborn softness,
until Elise came into the room and said,

"Wow! These are GREAT!  Vintage fabric!"

Well, they may not be wrapped up soft,
but these babies will sure be in style!

A mother's arms are made of tenderness and children sleep soundly in them.
