Madelyn and Mowgli

My oldest daughter Madelyn decided to take my sewing machine home a couple months ago.I didn’t expect to see such a wonderful gift when this beautiful quilt was given to me on Christmas morning.

Made of all the scraps of fabric that I had left over from my quilt making days.

It used to be therapy for me to sit and cut squares and triangles to sew together. Especially when I had lots of little children at home. I admit I am a teenage mom…young children were hard for me. So…time spent with color and quiet meant a lot.

Mowgli joined our family in April after we lost our beloved Zoey.

Preston (and the rest of us) needed a new little dog around.

Mowgli has been a joy and a stinker all rolled into one.

But seeing him wrapped up in my new gift was… a gift to me.

A quick reminder that dogs bring joy and love to our lives without saying a word.
