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.

If you would like to join me for a weekend of creative stitching (plus laughter and generous dollop of creativity) please contact Just Sew here, or drop me  a line at helen.cowans”at”btconnect.com (replacing the “at” with @). Or leave a comment below.

The course is suitable for  beginners and the more advanced and can be tweaked to your skill level. 
If you have a sewing machine that can do straight and ZZ stitch and you can use a pair od scissors I can guide you to make your very own Towers of Flowers.
