Spring at last

The weather is finally warmer I have sat outside to eat my lunch twice this week, so tired of the cold it has been a very long winter.
Thank you to all the girls who emailed me last week asking how I was my medical procedure is over and I am much better nothing serious or scary just annoying as the cyst on my back was in such an awkward spot and large I didn't mind not being able to do housework but not able to sew was the pits!
I was home a week and unable to do my homework for class, but today I made a start here's the proof.
My sewing room.

Block six of The Marriage Quilt is on the way.
Fabrics in the foreground have been chosen for next major works inspired by daffodils, tulips and other spring flowers.
I am loving all the old brights that are available at the moment Rhonda from Post Office Patchwork Glenbrook gave me a bundle of Pomegranate by The Rock Mountain Quilt Museum 1800-1850 by Bluehill fabrics just delicious.
Glenbrook was my first classes after my week off so here are the girls and their homework.
First two quilts are Ruth's.
Lucy Boston.

French Mosaic

Liz just needs to finish her mitred corners on French Mosaic.

Pru didn't want a Cream Tea so here is her Green Tea.
Just love it!

My Summer School samples are almost ready just need a few bits and pieces to organise and your emails will be sent.
I will see the girls at Quiltsmith tomorrow and then on to Miranda for Thursday Friday so look forward to catching up.
I will be keeping up with my blog now!
Stay safe everyone
