At last! The first of spring months and it is as if the nature is trying to make up for last two months; it is wall to wall sunshine and temperatures in double figures. Has the spring really arrived early and is it here to stay?
Lets hope so...........
Now, I know that I have enough stitching on the go, and yes, I did say I am on the roll with the Scandinavian Rose quilt, and yes, I do want to finish it, BUT - with all this new energy outside I just could not resist. It is just calling for a new project, something light and fun - I had this planned for some time, a wall hanging for our dining area. It is yet to be renovated, so it gives me time...
Do you sometimes have this precise idea about the fabric you need/want, but you just can't find it? I am sure you know what I mean. I wanted this pin dot on cream, and eventually I found that "Ice Cream" by American Jane for Moda was just the thing. Unfortunately I could not find it in UK, so ordered it directly from American Jane . At extra cost of course, but it is just what I want to use as a background to my wall hanging. The lovely blue at the top came with the same order.
DH away today, watching Six Nations game England - Wales at Twickenham, house to myself, time to start my new project.
I found this little primula and crocuses in my new header on the pile of soil in "not yet my garden".
They are trying so hard to stay alive, I will move them to a new flower bed soon.
