My Special Gift.

A couple of month ago. Jane from Want it Need it Quilt it had A give away she asked if you had One special Birthday Wish what would it Be My answer was I would like to go into A quilting shop and Instead of just looking be able to buy what I wanted as being on A pension it is Hard.No I did not win her give away But having The big heart she has she sent me A 3kilo bag of material from her stash .so my wish came true. So yesterday I decided to have A play I am not good at Quilting But I am learning .My daughter Beth from Highland Hen helps me A lot if I get stuck I ring her.Well this is what I have done so far. Dont look too close I am happy I will make A quilter out of myself yet.

Thanks again QuiltyJane.
