Everywhere I look in the garden there are bulbs shooting through the soil, and the jonquils are in full flight - heralding the turning of the season.
Johnny Jump Ups are one of my FAVOURITE annuals, and I always have them popping up everywhere in the garden, as they love to self seed - I encourage this type of plant.
And as for my cushion story, well, I finished the cushions, and was flushed with success. Always being taught to "go the extra mile", I went rummaging around in the shed and found some old paint from our last house.
These lovely jonquils are from my garden. They are popping up everywhere and show such signs of promise for Spring Time.
I did finish this little crotched basket a few weeks ago - a bit of fun.
Now I had a request from my last post to talk more about this quilt and how I made it. When I went to take a photo, look who I found sitting comfortably upon it!!
Here's a close up of one of my quilted pillows.
To be quite honest, I've had this quilt "on the go" for such a long time, that I have really forgotten how exactly I put it together. I know that there was no pattern involved. I just had all my favourite Amy scraps, and wanted to make a big, snuggly quilt, one school holidays last year.
I remember putting the quilt top together quite quickly. I had to keep adding bits to the edges to keep making it just a little bit bigger. Then I decided to hand quilt it. I did some quilting early on, and then it got folded and tucked away. When I got it out a few weeks ago, I realised I'd done quite a lot, and that I should just get on and finish it, so that's what I did. Now I'm thrilled with the finish, and that's why I'm going all out with the extra pillows. I'll take another photo when they're all done.
