Play quilt for Aleena


 She's home!

My third grandchild was born in August.  Aleena weighed 4 pounds 2 ounces at birth and had to stay in the NICU for 44 days.  Her parents went every day to hold her and love her.  I went several times but mostly I watched her big sister when I could to help out.  We are so happy she is home with her family now (although she will need heart surgery as soon as she is large enough).  While she was in the NICU was a stressful time on all of us.  So even though I had already made her a quilt, I ended up making a few more (I recognize it was more for me and my stress relief!).  All of the quilts have little elephants on them and have purple, grey, green, and pink, as those are the nursery colors.

Aren't these little elephants cute?

Thanks for visiting me!  I'll post about the other little quilt I made her in a few days.
