bedroom seashell quilt

The most heartwarming gift is a handmade gift. If you’ve ever made a gift for someone, you know that with every stitch… or drop of glue… or every rhyme to a poem….or stroke of the brush…… that special person is in your thoughts.

So when I received this beautiful seashell quilt from Tammy T from Utah, I burst into tears.

I’m not a quilter but I know how much thought and the hours and hours Tammy put into making this gorgeous quilt for me. For me??? It makes my heart swell.

I’m not sure I could read this out loud to y’all without crying again, so it’s a good thing I can just let you see the letter for yourself that came along with it. Just click the photo to make it larger.

I can’t thank you enough, Tammy, for such a thoughtful gift! I really can’t believe my little blog to spread the sunshine of Sanibel and our beautiful seashells would inspire you that much to make this as a gift. I’m forever touched and grateful that I have now met you and your lovely husband Steve.

 As you can see, the quilt is a perfect match for our guest room (with the quilted pillow made by Clark’s sister Janice) so it has a new happy home until I need it for snuggling up with Clark to watch our fave TV show (Survivor!). Thank you again Tammy! You will always be dear to my heart.
