Spring has sprung.

Another week has gone by since I wrote my blog. We have been so busy in the garden with all this lovely weather we are having. Spring has definitely sprung.

 This is looking out of my back door, in a couple of weeks it should be full of colour.

This little wall planter still sits under a plaque that tells you it is the Pottery,"that was another life" which I gave up in the year 2000. when my hobby took over from my work and I retired.

Mr M has made two new raised veggie beds, though only one will be for veg, and the other for more fruit bushes.We are cutting down on the rest, though I shall still grow tomatoes in the green house along with chilli peppers and cucumbers, hopefully.

 Now my hobby. You will be pleased to know the stitchery on the Parsley Quilt is finished  (all 49 blocks). Am I pleased? You may well ask, well you know me it's OK. Now to get on with the borders.

I did not do much in the way of drawings for the cow parsley sprigs. I drew them straight on to the fabric as I went along, some singles and some doubles. Not a good photo of the quilt top will try again later.

Now I was asked for a link to the Casco Bay Canisters. The pattern is by AuntiesTwo Patterns and the pattern number is AT218. Hopes this helps..

Now I am off to cut out the first border for the quilt top, and try to work out what I am going to do next..There are lots of things buzzing around in my head as usual, we shall see.

Keep safe and keep stitching.... Doti..
