A Honey of a Personalized Gift
A beekeeping friend's daughter was having a baby but due to complications, the baby wasn't going home from the hospital.
Daily updates were heart-breaking as the family shared their fears, joys, hopes - that the little new life would pull through and finally get to go home and start life as a normal addition to the family.
I wasn't a family member nor did I live close enough to share in the hospital watches but I wanted my friend to know I had hope that she would have a new beekeeper in her family.
One of the advantages of running my own business is that I can shop from my own inventory and I picked this vintage printed honey-themed baby quilt Honey Bears Baby Quilt to ship, along with a little bee toy, to deliver my best wishes.
Isn't that little bear cute peeking out from the corner of the gift box? One of my favorite parts of this business is gift-wrapping, as if you can't tell.
This was a fun baby quilt because the panel was hand quilted, giving the quilt an extra dimension. If they didn't want to use it in a crib, it could easily have been made into a nursery wall hanging.
The baby quilts and baby crib quilts are one of a kind so we don't have any more of these but I still consider this one of my favorite baby gifts.
Interested in the vintage honey bear quilt panel? I found another one on Etsy if you are looking for one.
