My daughter Kate left today, it was a wonderful holiday with her home and went by too quickly! Last year I made her a colorful quilt with her favorite quotes appliqued to the back. She brought it with her to put on the bed and wrap up in the recliner when we sat and chatted, laughed and snacked in the evenings.
Handmade gifts are the ones we cherish, gifts created with time, thoughtfulness and love. I know my darling daughter when we are apart is always kept warm and tucked in with her cozy quilt.
