Handmade Tokens of Love

My mom came to visit last week. She surprised me with this adorable throw...

I had picked out the fabric and pattern a couple years ago during a trip to Amish Country. My Mary Engelbreit addiction is accompanied by a love of Scottish Terriers. I was so amazed with the gorgeous hand stitching.

Then...


She brought in this framed beauty! I remembered her purchasing the Mary Engelbreit pattern book, but I was not sure she would get around to making anything. It is machine pieced and appliqued and hand quilted. I cried...

What a lucky daughter I am!!!
