My Blanket,My Teddy and Me!

Happy Saturday everyone! I just wanted to show you a very special gift my mom made for me. This is a stitchery I admired in a shop we visited,my mom new the lady well and she got the pattern and made me one! I just love him and cant wait to get him framed and on my bedroom wall. Part of the reason it is so special is the quilt that is around it. As most of you know I have a beloved Golden retriever, Pearse...well my brother is the owner of Pearse's momma. Her name is Maggie and she is beautiful too. The quilt belonged to Maggie when she was a puppy and was her *baby* blanket. Yes we are crazy about our animals! So when my mom was looking for a quilt to use around the edge my brother and Maggie *donated* her old baby blanket.

I was a little overwhelmed of course at the thought put into this by all three of them. As you can see it has been tea stained and my brother is also making me a frame for it from old barn wood but first mom is adding another row of quilt to the sides. We decided it needed to be a little wider. I just love it!!!
Hope you all have a great weekend.
