Purple Elephants

I know this is totally non-sheepie, but please bear with me, I am a grandma after all......

Years ago our oldest daughter acquired this horrible purple shaggy piece of material and used it as a bedspread for the longest time.  When she married and moved out, she refused to take it with her, so I promised her some day I would find a way to give it back to her.  Well, I had not been able to make our little grand daughter a blanket yet, due to not having a functioning sewing machine for the last couple of years, but now that that issue is remedied I have had some fun in the sewing room doing a grandma project.   

This is the first time I have ever actually liked that purple fabric. Some of the squares have elephants on them so I decided to make Nora a little elephant pillow to go with her blanket.  And just think, I have enough left over to make another if the next grand baby is a girl.  Yup, being a grandma is pretty awesome.
