This weeks' theme at Trendy Treehouse is "Share". I quickly realized that my favorite picture featuring sharing is one I took way back of my kids wrapped in the quilt my grandmother made.
wrapped in love
She made one for each of her kids (11 living) using scraps from clothing she wore or made for her kids over the years. My dad's wasn't finished before she passed away so my aunt finished it. When I was 18, my dad gave it to me and I've loved and cherished it ever since. I've even had to repair it a time or two making that three generations to sew on it. :) Truly a labor of love and one that has been shared with multiple generations of my family.

Wow, an amazing photo but an even more amazing story behind it! Love the subdued colors, too.

Thanks for coming by my site to comment on my photo! I do a blog hop on Thursdays where people share things that made them happy, and this definitely qualifies! I hope you'll share it there!

About Me

My photo
I'm a SAHM that loves photography. My kids are my main models but they're on to me and have started running in the opposite direction of me and my camera. Well, all but the youngest. She's a ham. To compensate I take pictures of just about everything else from flowers and bugs, to landscapes and anything else that will sit still. And I share it all here because I might as well do something with it. :)
