a beautiful little friendship sampler in blue and gold...the colours of Otago..which is the province I live in, here in the South Island. Janet sent me a questionnaire that she had also given answers for and in it I expressed the desire to one day make a blue and gold quilt...when ?? I don't know, but now that I have my special little one maybe I don't need to now!!!! Janet also included a little pattern book from Fig Tree quilts because it had an article on using silk thread, which is just what Janet used to quilt my gift. Needless to say I was over the moon when I opened the parcel.
One thing I learned about postage is that even though I sent mine Fastpost, it took a lot longer to get to Canada than Janet's parcel took to arrive from there..nearly twice as long! it made for an anxious wait..
