Many months ago Michelle and Fiona found out it was a special birthday for Shez this year. So they got their heads together and decided a quilt should be made. Secret womens business followed, which resulted in a beautiful quilt, put together and quilted by Fiona and the label and binding done by Michelle. Michelle also go the job of delivery person while on her holidays down south!! So a sewing day was arranged for today and the presentation was made! It was priceless!! Michelle asked Shez to help her with some show and tell....
oh that is a bit blurry..Shez is a speedy mover!! Lol!!
out of the bag it comes
out of the pillowcase
Ooooo...spotty paper...is this for me???? What is this?
Shez was speechless....and in tears...
she couldn't believe what she was seeing!! People from all over the world had made the Polaroid blocks and sent them to Fiona, I think Shez was in shock!! She sure was surprised and it was kept a really good secret, she had no idea!! I think Shez will need some time to take it all in!!
