Just before my fifth birthday I started school and sat next to a little girl who became my best friend. We played together after school, rode our bikes, slept in a tent in her garden, went on holiday to Butlins and met boyfriends together. It wasn't until she was married and I moved to a different area that we saw less of each other but we always kept in touch.
My friend makes beautiful full size quilts and saves her scraps of fabric for me. When I moved to Spain I asked her to make a quilt for my guest bed and as a surprise she made a wall hanging to match.
We met up for a special birthday dinner two weeks ago and I gave her a room box I'd made of her work room. She was over whelmed as everything in it was personal to her and I was so pleased she liked it.
I'd downloaded photos of her quilts and printed them onto fabric to make the wall hangings and quilts.
My friend was delighted with her present, I was happy to make it. How do people manage in life without a hobby?
