Its funny how I've always taken my bed for granted and then my mother-in-law made Charlotte and I a beautiful, wonderful, hand pieced and quilted (not a single stitch from a sewing machine) that just blew me away. See photo. Her gift is as much the time she spent as the quilt she created. Love in every stitch.
And I am so grateful for that quilt. I am also grateful that I have a bed to put it on - so many people in this world have neither.
