Look what came today..






Would you have bought this quilt? Well I did, I found it on Ebay and it is called Scarlett's Wedding Quilt ( very very big quilt)
It is hand quilted and just beautiful, the seller purchased it in Warren ( US ) and it was made to raise funds for a Animal Shelter some years ago.
The quilt is in new condition and I can't wait to wash it and put it on our bed.
It took 2 month to get here and I was getting a little worried, but the Ebay seller was really good regarding staying in touch, she also insured the quilt.

Guess what I paid....... well as I said it is very big and it only cost me $ 225 ( the seller paid $ 595, it still has the price tag )

Doing the happy dance after my sad face missing out on Sydney.

cheers
Christine

Schon wieder so ein schöner Quilt Christine.
Und was den Henning Mankell angeht: Ich mag seine Bücher auch sooo gerne.
Die Hörbücher höre ich auch gerne, vor allem beim Nähen :-)
