Cradle and Quilt

The baby quilt is done…I finished it this morning.My hands are a little sore, but so worth it.

21 years ago our first grandchild was coming into the world. Arney found a pattern for a cradle made in the 1800’s and all winter long he handmade this beautiful solid Oak rocking cradle. It was a really cold winter here in Idaho and often I would take hot coffee to him to help keep him warmer. Made with love for Kayla Marie and all his grandchildren to come.

So now a new great granddaughter will be born and she will lay in this beautiful cradle.

There are no nails in the cradle. It was put together with wooden dells that Arney also made by hand.

Before it goes home with Kayla and Dolan, I will clean and wax the cradle. It will shine!

Made with love, Arney & Mary.
