Happy Birthday to me!!!

I haven't blogged for a wee while, I've been busy quilting (more on that later) and off to our annual retreat where I was completely suprised when at morning tea was seated (probably a good thing!) to a cake heading my way and the tunes of "Happy Birthday"........

If that wasn't enough of a suprise I was given this beautiful quilt.
Apparently nearly a year in the planning, secrets and probably a few tall tales!

This quilt was my birthday present made with care and love by my quilting friends.

Such a wonderful treasured gift.Each bag has the makers personality shinning through, and personal hand written messages.

Quilting was done by Sandy Mayo in Auckland, if you are out there Sandy, thank you!
