My best gift was Family Cookbooks for my 3 adult kids even my sn loved it.. And I did all the recipes in my handwriting not typed and printed. My favorite recipe is a handwritten Christmas cookie recipe from my Grandmother with a 2nd copy written by my daughter 40 yrs later...both splattered and so loved.

Thanks Natalie!!
My best gift given was the first quilt I made - I gave it to my Mum! She used it till the end of her life and now it's back here with me, full of so many happy memories.

The first quilt I ever made I gave to my Mother in law for Christmas the first year I was married. A Log cabin quilt (did not know that was my MILs favorite pattern!) She still uses it and loves it! Warms my heart thinking how she loves it - I have been married to her wonderful son for 30 years. Thank you!

My dad died in early December several years ago and that year I managed to make my sisters, mom and myself each a quilt for Christmas using fabrics from my dad's work shirts and his blue jeans. I must have had legions of angels helping me as I look back there is no other possible way I could have made 4 complete quilts from start to finish in that amount of time.

The best gift I gave was a cordless drill to my husband. It was the first and last (so far) present I have given him that was a complete surprise and that was 16 years ago. Thank you for the questions that bring back good memories.

Not wanting to be to corny, or appear to be sucking up, but since I started quilting eight years ago they have by far been my best gifts given. Best of best: Several years ago I gave my friend (and hairdresser) Laura a quilt for her first grandson and my calm, even tempered, never frazzled, pal Burst Into Tears. I was showing her the quilt, she was admiring it and asked "who's it for?" and I said "well Deegan!". Instant tears. Ok, after that it had to be diamond earrings for my daughter's college graduation.

My husbands surfs so I had one of the photos taken of him and had it made into a black and white oil painting, of sorts. It is hard to describe but I loved it and he was totally surprised.

I donated a dog house this year to a shelter in KY as they have about 70 dogs outside in very cold weather. Very sad situation.
