What does Xmas mean to you ?

What Xmas means to you  | Sharon Keightley Quilts

Xmas here in New Zealand is about sunshine, the beach, bar-b-ques, holidays and spending time with family and special people in my life. This Xmas is extra special with both of my sons coming home from overseas, and a new baby arriving in the New Year.

Last night I had a wonderful impromptu visit from my lovely friend Anna she brought me the most beautiful bunch of flowers from her amazing garden. Such a special gift, I am truly blessed to have her as my friend. Which made me remember a block inspired by her Roses called Anna's Treasure from my Rambling Ways quilt.
