It has been my birthday this weekend, I have reached another decade but I am not going to say which one, however it was significant enough for a group of four friends to make me the most fantastic present, all hand made.Ann Briggs, Christine Jones, Sandra Hall and Lynne Hunter (the Craft Den) all got together towards the end of last year to make me this beautiful "throw" for my bed, the quilting work that has gone into it is unbelievable. I was lost for words and quite emotional that these friends would spend so much time and work making what can only be described as an heirloom for me, we have a King size bed so you can just imagine the size of this beautiful piece of work, I just love, love, love everything about it. We all met up today at Sandra's house (Sandy Poppins) as we were going for a celebration lunch this is when they presented me with this stunning surprise. My photo does not do it justice in real life it is amazing and is actually a "Friendship Quilt" not a throw as I said earlier.

I am rather late posting this but I have been having problems with Blogger again, luckily my wonderful grand-daughter was able to sort it out for me tonight so now here is my March page.
