Spring is here

Spring is making an appearance in this corner of Hampshire,  daffodils and crocuses are blooming and trees are in blossom. The girls enjoyed a scenic drive down today on what turned out to be a sunny and mild day.

Poor Chris couldn't join us today as she was feeling poorly - we are waving and shouting 'Get Well Soon!' Hope the sore throat goes away fast and you are feeling better.

Janet got started very quickly onto her sewing - even before the first cuppa was poured, however did pause to sample a lemon and poppyseed muffin - a new recipe from the Sainsbury magazine, Jan or Feb issue I think.  She was adding buttons to a wallhanging called Pumkins andSpice by Whimsicals by Red Rooster fabrics   -it is going to look great.

Amanda has been busy making aprons, this one with a doggy theme -what a great present for a doggy friend. Today she was busy preparing more hexagons -have you decided what you are going to do with them yet?

Caroline was sewing the binding on her table runner , she's not sure if she likes it or not but we all said it looks great. She used the Quilt As You Go method - we had a great workshop with   Carolyn Forster on this method a couple of years ago. 

I got another couple of blocks done for my Dear Jane project - a very long term project!! then started to sew the binding onto a baby quilt which is to be a gift for a friend of DD.

Our thoughts are with the people of Japan who are coming to terms with the loss of loved ones and horrific scenes of destruction caused by the earthquake and tsunami. It is almost unimaginable and made us all feel very grateful for what we have.

Looking forward to next week.
