The nicer side of life

The only secrete stitching I did for xmas was for our online Friends in Stitching group's pressie swap.
I had to make for Kerri of Willow Grove Quilting. I chose a cute Gail Pan pattern and used a variety of Hugs 'n Kisses fabrics.
I really enjoyed putting this pattern together.

My gorgeous boy turned 18 on the 29th December, he was such a cutie when he was little.

Now he is so grown up and very independant

Towards the end of my chemo session last week Helen arrived with a special delivery
a lovely quilt made by all my wonderful "Friends in Stitching"
I've snuggled under it quite a few times now and will take it to all my sessions.
I'm very lucky to have such a wide community of supporters, I feel very blessed to have such wonderful friends in my life.
Thank you to everyone who has emailed, left a comment and sent well wishes, it means so much x

Hello Jo, I was just out blog surfing this morning and I landed here on your blog. I am also a quilter and stitcher. Your bag is lovely and the quilt that your friends made is so thoughtful; I am sure you feel a warm hug from each of them each time you cuddle up under it. Your post touched my heart and I just want you to know that you will be in my prayer tonight; I am adding you to my prayer list.
God bless you and your family,
Connie :)
