Gardenhurst in the garden

Yes, really! 
We have had a couple of nice sunny spring days; specially today was really beautiful outside. 
I actually spent about an hour sewing outside, how great was that!
I managed to quilt a whole block of Gardenhurst, while enjoying the sunshine, before it turned chilly.

This morning the latest (May issue !) Landscape magazine arrived in the post.
I wrote about this magazine back in January and you can read it again here .

I quickly "scanned" the pages over breakfast, just long enough to read an article 
about a textile artist Rachel Sumner , who makes wonderful collage pictured from scraps of fabrics.

You can read more about her and her book 
"Stitched Textile, Birds" 
on her website here .
