16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
My 85 year old mother-in-law stitching a quilt for my husband.

My mother-in-law Anna Bea is checking her stitching work after she made this last quilt for my husband and myself. She is in heart failure and wanted to do it in remembrance of her to us. I know she can't be with us forever, and I thought it was the most precious gift to receive from her.
