GREEN SPRING

I can smell it. Spring is here! Although cold in the morning, the weather is getting sunnier and the garden is back to life after the dreadful long winter.
To make the garden look even more green, I hung the last shawl I knit!

I had dyed the wool some time ago, but a pattern still wanted to be found.
That´s done now. Apart from looking cheerful in my sewing room I don´t have any use for this piece at all. Maybe my mother would like it? Green looks great on her.
Although I have to prepare 2 quilt courses for may, I could not help starting another top. My excuse is that it is a very simple and fast pattern and fat quarter friendly.
I am using some of the dyed fabric I showed last time too. I don´t plan to buy any fabric for this quilt. Let see how big it will get!

I will spend the week-end in my garden looking the daisies, clover and moss taking over the lawn!
Have a nice week-end too!

Gwen, I love love love the shawl, so pretty!
We've been having spring with really warm weather for a few weeks now. Today there are lots of blooming azaleas and trees to see.

Beautiful shawl. Just the other day dd asked me where all the afgans I use on the couch keep coming from. As my knitting is basic, and I don't crochet they are all whispers from the past, each one with it's own story.

I like this new quilt. The lines through the center are creating a nice clean crisp look.

Quel beau chale couleur printemps!!
Je pense qu'il sera génial pour le jardin car il se confondra avec les salades.
Peux tu nous expliquer ta manière sans doute rapide d'exécuter les blocs de ce patch.
Bisous

I just wanted to say 'Hi' and how much I love your blog. You are so clever.
I chat with your sister every Friday whilst our children swim. I showed her my scrapbooking blog today and she passed your details on to me for me to take a look.
Have a lovely weekend,
Lisa
