First for me to make one like this. Made in about three weeks time, lots of hours spent on it.
I made this from cross stitched blocks oldest Granddaughter's other Grandma did. She can't sew a button on, so she selected me to make it for her oldest Daughter.

What could be more wonderful than to have something from the loving hands of two Grandmothers! What a beautiful treasure.
