How lucky am I!


Look what they made me for my birthday! The lovely girlies from Jo Blox have been sneaking around planning colour schemes, swapping fabric, cutting and stitching, to make this fantastic lap quilt – for me. They surprised me with it last night in the pub and it comes complete with a label with all of their names on the back. I’m feeling rather special right now, thank you x

      They really are the best, we’ve been quilting together for about 15 years now through thick and thin.
