It really is a testament to a mothers love isn't it? The great care with which the edging was lovingly sewn. Throughout the ages, mothers have nurtured nested and sewn adoringly for their young! Hehe! I find this really heartwarming. And THIS is an example of how mankind has survived and thrived! Hehe!
