Tuesday's Treasure

This is my very first Tuesday's Treasure so here I go. I have chosen the quilt I received from the beautiful women in my quilt group for my 50th Birthday (a wee while ago now). It's all hand quilted with a hand stitched label on the back done by my friend Ann who is not really in to stitching so that made it even more special that she took the time to stitch it. It was such a special day and a surprise also. I am a confirmed Christmasaholic and my birthday is in July so they prepared a  yummy Christmas in July lunch with Christmas carols and plum pudding to boot. The table was set with my friend Bev's best china, linen napkins and beautiful Christmas decorations on the table. There was even a decorated Christmas tree with even MORE gifts for me. I was totally overwhelmed by the love and generosity showered on me that day. I use the quilt to cuddle up under in the cooler weather when I read or journal and I really do feel that I am wrapped in a blanket of love.
