Grandma's Kitchen, block #23, That One Item

Block #23 of Pat Sloan's Grandma's Kitchen sew along is a That One Thing, a free choice topic. I've been waiting for this one. Anyone who knew my Gramma Ann knew of her love for Betty Boop!

I'm not sure why Gramma loved Betty so much. Mom thinks maybe it's because she was so popular when Gramma was a young woman. I do know that she liked to draw her.

Throughout her life, Gramma was gifted with all sorts of Betty Boop collector items.

Two of my aunts found a large paper mache Betty in New Mexico.

Ms. Boop made the move from Arizona to Wisconsin with Gramma for the last years of her life. Here she is watching Gramma open up the memory quilt I made for her.

Gramma hung my quilt up on the wall for all her visitors to see. And Betty got dressed up for St. Patrick's day.

Family would often send her pictures of Betty as we found her on our travels.

Personally, my favorite Betty Boop find is this one.
