Two Days Until Springtime!

Bring it on!

Well, today is grey and drizzly but last Wednesday it felt like Spring was well and truly here!

It was so sunny we had the door and windows open in the workshop

Everyone was really busy working on their Yoko Saito town quilts with Lynne's beautiful quilt to inspire them

It was especially nice because we had two ladies from the caravan site join us - Barbara all the way from Fleetwood in Lancashire, and Ruth from Skegness.  I loved seeing them walk up the drive together to spend the day sewing and chatting.

And what a lot of sewing, houses sprouting up everywhere

Such a beautiful quilt.
Oh yes - and I finished my 'shabby chic' throw

so that was good.  I wanted it to look old and used, and it does, probably because it's taken so long to finish!

When everyone had gone I went for a little walk around the garden and was so pleased to signs of spring everywhere; the hedges greening up, primroses and daffodils looking so pretty, cherry blossom coming out and all the pussy willow and catkins.  The willows down by pond had a green haze around them where the leaves are appearing.  All just as it should be!



  1. Hooray for Spring! Those little houses are very pretty and a great quilt

  2. Spring has sprung!. I like the houses too.
