After Mabel’s Grandma passes away Mabel finds a tiny thimble and an unfinished blanket. Her memories of her Grandma are depicted in smaller pictures within the pages of soft watercolours and pencil. As the story progresses the small pictures change to colour and are of her Grandad being supported by the family and learning how to cope again. By the time a hearty vegetable broth is made with produce from the garden Mabel has picked up the thimble, the thread and the blanket and finishes it. A very positive story dealing with grief and loss.
