Today was the day to hand over the quilt (and a couple of other special items) to its rightful owner. I had one more item to add to it .... I wasn't sure if I should or not. I decided to.
Now, after hearing the story of The Bonnet, I am thankful that I did. Not wanting to cut the ties, just in case the family ever decides they want it off of the quilt, I couldn't figure out what to do with them. Then it dawned on me. The quilt is called "A Mother's Love", why not spell LOVE with the ties?
"When we were little, my sister and I had Cabbage Patch dolls. My parents were building a house on the lake, but we had a trailer to live in while it was being built. On Christmas day, the trailer caught on fire. My mom ran in and the only thing she grabbed was our dolls. This is the bonnet from my doll. The little marks are from that day."
