Precious Gift

I received the most precious gift in the mail yesterday from one of my talented blogger friends - Sharon of Wildflower House! She makes beautiful quilt and embroidery gifts.

Below, she made me this beautiful tapestry with a photo of my precious pup Scout! Check out the details on this - down to the birdies I love and how she added a little dangly heart from her collar. I can't wait to hang this in the log cabin! Sharon - thank you! Your generosity and talent warm my heart!!






Sharon can take a photo of yours and make something like this for you too! Contact her thru her blog if you are interested. I think these would make great gifts for someone special. (Check out her store here and her Etsy shop here - her work is amazing!)







Scout says thank you and wants me to contact the Detroit Institute of Arts to see if they want a picture of her too!! Yep - her ego is getting a little big!!

Shelley,
What a wonderful gift! Scout just keeps getting cuter by the day. I wonder why her ego is so big ~ is she a little bit spoiled, maybe?
hugs,
Pam

The quilt is absolutely beautiful. I would think the DIA would be honored to have a picture of Scout to display. About Scout's ego -- you don't spoil her, do you?

Judy said...

Beautiful quilt! Scout must be very proud of it. He is so darn cute. I just want to pick him up and cuddle.

Just a little something from Judy said...

Isn't it fun to see the blessing of an unexpected gift? Scout is slowly stealing my heart too. Every picture you share of her is cuter than the last one. Who knows what big contract she will receive.

Rural Rambler said...

That is a very sweet gift idea! And such a nice thing to do. I am going to head over to her blog. Great to see that Scout pup, she is getting big.

NCmountainwoman said...

I think the Institute of Arts would be happy to have a picture of Scout! She is absolutely adorable. The wall hanging will be a joy for many years to come. Um...but what about Marvin?

KentuckyFarmGirl said...

That is absolutely adorable!

Kim~HomeIsWhereTheHeartIs said...

That is so very sweet!

Rose said...

Very nice! and Scout gets cuter every day...please give him a pet and a hug for me. I would probably rub his fur off if I were there.

Ginger said...

That is the neatest gift!!! Scout is precious.
