Yeah, the secret is out

Well at long last I can talk about a little quilt that kept me busy for just a wee while, that is the one that many of us contributed to for our own Miss Deb.  Deb has already talked about it on her blog so now I feel that I can do a post here so that you all can see the photo's.  Sadly I didn't get one of her doing the 'ugly face' crying thing as she responded totally different to what I expected - she went VERY quiet! So here below are photo's in the best order I got. Geez this woman is so slow at opening presents...
 Just rip into it woman...
 "What's this?"
 Reading the label Maree made
 A quiet moment
 Checking out each of the blocks
 We didn't need that curtain rail anyway : ))
 Come on, pose for the camera.
 After the parcel I gave Deb all the notes that you all sent for her - more quiet time.
 Deep in thought
So there you are girls, the weather outside was frightful but inside we had the glow of a warm fuzzy and great friendship.  Sorry this is so picture heavy but I wanted you all to kind of be here with us too.
hugs
Miche'le
