Gardenhurst - first two blocks, and winter "pick me up"

Yes, I have been busy this week and the first two blocks are done.

We are having cold winter this year; cold and grey, although in our part of England without snow, just the little dusting now and then - it is a hibernation time. 
Without snow, the greyness is even worse,
so it is nice to work with this sunny yellow fabric for my next block.

It is from the  Grunge range by Moda Fabric,
and so it the blue/grey below, I really like that one; 
it is actually more grey then in this picture - it is so hard to get the right colours in the grey winter light.

Anybody watched Monty Don's "Paradise Gardens" on BBC2 last night?
What a delight, it is just what we need to see at this time of year!

Enjoy your weekend, thank you for stopping by ūüėÄ
