Beautiful surprise in the mail.....

I received an unexpected package from my sweet friend Janet who lives in England!!
I'm always excited when I get a package from her, because I know it's something wonderful.
I was on my way out to run errands but turned around and came home so I could rip it my shock it contained this breathtaking quilt!!
Here is a close can't see the shimmer of the fabric very well but it is beautiful. Bryan couldn't believe his eyes either.....he loves it too! He wants to hang it on the wall going up the stairs but I've been told by Janet it must be used....VBG!

The picture below is a close up of the personal message that Janet sewed on it....I hope you can read it......:-) If you click on this picture you will be able to read her message and see the fabric up close!

Janet, words can't express my gratitude to you for such a heartwarming gift!
I did wrap up in it last night and I sure felt the love that it contains!
Thank you my dear friend!
You can see more of Janet's work on her blog....please go check it out! You will be amazed.

Beautiful quilt Noel, looks like a lot of love went into it's making.

When you get a chance - please pop over to my blog, I'm in the process of making a beaded piece and I believe I'm using something that was made by you and gifted to me. Will you please check it out and confirm it's from you? Thanks!
