nokie

For Christmas my friend, Michelle, made me my very own nokie (her family's word for special blanket). These rag blankets became popular not long after Tessa was born and I remember feeling bummed because I thought they were so cute and wouldn't ever get one for a baby of mine. But I needn't feel sad any long because now I have my own. It is so very warm and snugly. I sleep with it every night.

Oh and my favorite part is that she was able to make it almost completely with flannel she already had! There are pieces from jammies she made the girls and me last year plus parts of other blankies nokies.

What a great gift: even adults need nokies and a special hug now and then! ;-)

I think that is one of the most wonderful gestures I have heard of in a while! It can be such a simple thing that warms your heart SO much!
