It was a lovely morning. One of my friends Sandra and her Sister have been making a wedding quilt for their Niece. We have been watching this quilt evolve bit by bit as each sister did took their turn as they live in different States. We got to meet Sandra's lovely Sister when she came for a fabric hunting expedition for the quilt. Now Sandra is the most gorgeous lady, kind and generous, a fabulous (and I mean fabulous) cook and just happens to have the most exquisite taste which is obvious in this quilt. It's all needle turned applique and handquilted beautifully with a gorgeous scalloped border.

I also received some belated Birthday gifts from some of the girls who I hadn't caught up with around that time....don't you just love it when your Birthday keeps on going for ages. I now have some yummy "rhurbarb & Cranberry Chutney" which will be all mine as Hubby doesn't like it, some beautiful new teatowels, a gorgeous placemat and a gorgeous childrens book about Birthday wishes which I will share with you later.Thanks Girls. Lovely! I am very spoilt.
I also recieved some lovely mail from CAROLYN from Clenbar cottage who had a giveaway to celebrate her 50th post and I was the winner. I now have some beautiful vintage lace, buttons, embroidery threads, a pattern and some gorgeous 'liberty' charm squares which will have to be made into something a bit 'spec.' I feel. Carolyn also included the most gorgeous card. Carolyn has a lovley blog and you should pop over and visit.So thank you so much Carolyn and Congrats again on 50 plus posts.
