Where have those 4 or 5 months gone. I was a bit out of sorts for a couple of them, dealing with a viral infection which robbed me of my energy. When I started to recover I really wanted to make something, but didnt have the 'get up and go' to measure and cut carefully. I spotted this style of block made from scrap strips, so pulled out my scraps and just sewed and flipped.......so theraputic. I called it liquorice alsorts, as the fabric in the centre of each block was just that...liquorice allsorts sweets on a pink background.
None of these were very taxing on my energy, so I gained such satisfaction from making them.
Then Easter came around and I sent these little fabric nests to my neighbour's children.
The adults got a little bit of spring, which was taking it's time to arrive this year.
The weather has at last a feel of summer about it. Warm, and everything is green and growing. This mini mum produced a lovely colt, and they are enjoying the good weather too.
We enjoyed a trip to Lough Erne and Castle Coole yesterday, and I spotted these lovely primroses everywhere. They remind me of my childhood days at my grandmother's house.
I have had another go at finishing my Pond House by Lynette Anderson. I think I may get it finished this year. In between however I made a couple of wall hangings for my special friends who feed me gorgeous suppers once a month.
Whew!...that was a marathon blog. I plan to keep up ......well, I hope to keep up from now on. xx
