Wow, look what I got


This arrived for me in the post and it completely blew me away.  It is beautiful.  It came from Terry and was her last PIF.  I know a lot of you also read her blog, so know that over the last few months Terry has had a lot to cope with.  That has made this quilt so much more special and I will treasure it for years to come.

Every time I look at the quilt, I see something new.  All the fabrics go together so well and it is a lovely addition to my front room.

The bit that I really love is this:

The label made this so special, and it means the boys can't pinch it, it's all mine, lol.

The rules of the PIF is that I pass on the pleasure to three other people.  If you would like to receive a handmade gift from me within the next 12 months, please let me know.  Then within 12 months, you would pass on the pleasure to three other people.

Hi dear Lou, I follow Terry's blog and she is am amazing woman. I am trying to learn to quilt, but I would love to do your PIF if I could send something crocheted or painted. Your post said handmade and that of course could apply. I will be following your blog but cannot get on your follower's list due to a glitch with Google. Pop over for a visit. I did submit a square for Terry's quilt made after John got injured. Blessings

Terry's quilt is wonderful and it's truly amazing that she was able to get it done. I am so glad that she tagged it "all yours", lol, so you won't have to share this one special quilt. Enjoy. :-D
