Spring at last

Hi everyone, I saw this Parrot feasting on spring flowers a perfect picture for the start of the season.

I have had a busy time this week running my daughter to the hand clinic as she had an accident in Bali on her holiday and crushed her thumb, don't you hate those phone calls from your children overseas that start with don't panic but I had an accident on a boat in Bali!
Thank you for your enquiries for correspondence school everyone is welcome to join  you just need to email me direct with your details.

Lisa from Blueberries brought her finished Sampler to show us, all hand quilted and just beautiful.

Bev from Quiltsmith has just about finished her Folk Art Quilt.

Lyn from Quiltsmith has finished hers, I am a little jealous.

Do you remember Lyn made her Buttercup quilt for her granddaughter Zoe well here it is hand quilted and ready to hand over. My pattern for Buttercup will be in next months Quilter Companion if you would like to make it, issue 51 September issue.

And finally I went to the Camden quilt show opening on Friday night, such a great evening with lots of lovely quilts to look at. The sales table had such fantastic things. This beautiful tin had to come home.

Jan Cardy won a prize for her Lucy Boston quilt just look at her amazing hand quilting.

Susie dropped off my French Mosaic Quilt today I am very happy with the quilting it looks lovely so binding tomorrow but tonight I am going to relax and do some hexagons.
Happy stitching to all
