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.
I’m sure you can tell from his face that he enjoys causing a bit of trouble. His favorite activity is to drag items all over the house. I’m never quite sure where one my shoes are…and I now have to check the area for my daughters underwear before I will answer the front door.
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.
