Finding comfort in hand made

There is something very comforting about hand made items; not only the arts and crafts decorative or gift items, but things you use everyday. For example a hand made quilt is not only pretty to look at, but knowing that it was put together piece by piece gives it much more importance. We don’t all have a grandmother’s handed down quilt, but lucky for us, there are talented people who are willing to share their comforting quilts outside the family! Even if you don’t need a large quilt, what about a lap quilt like this beautiful one made by Sharon? We love the combination of turquoise and brown…so tranquil!

What does hand-made really mean, anyway?

Let’s stop a moment and think about what it means to have something that is hand-made. Before anything happens of course, it starts with an idea.
