For the past several months I have been working on a gift for my parents. It was a small quilt that features our family, starting with my parent's wedding date and then listing the birthdays and photos of each child. I've never made a quilt before, and I did all the quilting by hand. I don't think I've ever put so much time and effort into a gift and I could hardly wait to give it. It has been a lot of years since I've been so excited about giving at Christmas and I'm glad that this year turned out to be such a blessed one.
