Spring at last!

 Hi everyone,  hope you have been enjoying the warm sunshine and the gardening opportunities.
It feels as if Spring is finally finding its way here.
I had a fantastic birthday weekend or a whole week really.
I'm trying out a new Blog Editor so I hope this works OK :) 

I still have the London photos to process…. but I've been spending my time outside in the sun.
The studio border is replanted (can't claim I did this part).
But I did put down ground cover for a willow patch and more fruit trees.

The greenhouse is a hive of activity and I am like a mother hen nurturing my seeds and tomato plants.

Now for some stitching - here are some details from the last four "Journal Quilts" made January - March this year.

I promise to be back soon, I must get back to a regular blogging habit.


  1. Oh, your journal quilts are beautiful, and all so different. Love them.

  2. The garden is burgeoning! I love the quilt details - how different each one is and the sombre, rich wintry colours.
