Meet Joan she arrived today in the post and she was a complete surprise. A couple of days ago my lovely friend Kath of Hillside House blog posted about finding a Tone Finnager book in a charity shop. (hop over to her blog f you would like to read the post http://railwaycottage.blogspot.co.uk/) Kath mentions that her doll was in the postal system and making her way to a sweet friend. I never in my wildest dreams thought that sweet friend was me. I received a parcel this morning and there was Joan. Kath did not name her, Joan just popped into my head when I removed her from the packaging. Isn't she adorable and she is extra special because she was made by a beautiful friend just for me. How spooky is this though, here is one of the blocks on my seaside quilt!
These bathing beauties represent me and my sister and inspiration for them came from the the very book Kath found in the charity shop. Thanks Kath for my wonderful surprise I will treasure her always. X:)
