I have decided to join Clare's Tuesday Treasures.
I forgot about yesterday being Tuesday as I hurt my back at work last Friday so am off work for a week, on medication and back to seeing my physio again. I have a chronic back problem so the injury at work has exacerbated this injury. It will be better in about a week or so.
Anyway, that got me thinking today what I treasure most in life. I came up with the 2 most important people in my life, My son and my boyfriend.
My son is 24 and is always there for his Mum. When my back is bad or I'm sick he wants to do things for me like getting my shopping, medications etc. He has made me a path from my front door to my letterbox. He might not want to mow the lawn, wash up or do other things and complain about them but is always there when I really need him.
When we went to Thailand last year he filled his bag up with all my buys so that I didn't have to carry a heavy bag home. He even let me go on the back of his scooter for 2 days and visit every temple on Koh Samui. Not many 24yr old son's would do that for their mum.
Now to my boyfriend, Treasure. I have spoken about him in the past, doing my vegie garden, making my Spa room etc. Apart from all those things that he has done around my house he is always there to do any housework that I am unable to do and will listen to me when I just want to talk.
I am so glad that I have these 2 very special people in my life. They certainly are my most treasured people.

The second block that we decided to do is "Pigs in a Blanket". I did all the preparation at home over about 2 weeks. I cut out the pieces (they were bigger pieces this time, which was good) then I had to make the pigs up.
In class I put the pigs onto the background fabric, wadding and backing fabric.
Next came the quilting. I was really nervous with this as I didn't feel confident with the little bit of quilting that I had done on block 1 so I hadn't finished it. Chris (our teacher) gave me another lesson on the quilting and so tentatively I began. I couldn't believe it as it was looking really good. I ended up staying at "Buttons and Bows" all day and got it finished. I just have to sew the eyes on the pigs.
I was so impressed with myself that I can't wait to finish quilting block 1 and start on block 3.
