My treasure this Tuesday is a quilt my aunt made for me. The animals are stuffed so that they're 3D-ish and soft.Click on picture to see more detail!
I don't know how old I was when she made it, only that I've always had it and it's always been there! I do remember it hanging on the wall in my bedroom when I was about 3, and then again in the next house we lived in when I was 5 or so. I never took that much notice of it though, up until a few years ago when it came out of the linen cupboard during a much needed spring clean. Since then it's been hanging in my cupboard (no where to hang it on the walls) where I know it will be kept safe. Knowing that my aunt, who never did and still doesn't play a big roll in my life, made it for me when I was little, makes it one of those treasure's that will only get better with age.
Maybe this is the reason I grew up loving Australia's native animals?! lol
