Tuesday's treasure on Wednesday!

It's actually Wednesday already in NZ but I couldn't resist showing one of my treasures after seeing Rosie blog about her treasure! 
This beautiful shawl was made by my mother when I was pregnant with Charlotte, 15 years ago.   Mum's knitting is so fine and the wool is very soft.  I loved wrapping Charlotte in this and then Joshua when he was born.  The shawl is such a treasure and even more special now Mum is going blind with macular degeneration.  For more treasure's you can go to Melody here.
I have finished block 4 of the Boys Story quilt ...
I really love the comic strips in this quilt and so does Josh!!
I got more Sewline glue in the post yesterday so I am back into gluing and making more hexagon flowers.
Happy sewing, Wendy
