This, that and the other

The snow has finally gone, well apart from the lump that was TK's snowman and it seems that Spring is trying to burst forth. I spied our first snowdrop in the garden this morning.

I think I might have said before that it is going to be interesting to see what happens in our new garden throughout this first year. I will probably dig up some plants that I don't like. Its still a question of getting used to the fact that if I want to change something...........I can! I want to put some stepping stones down the length of the garden to the shed soon. These will also follow the washing line down the garden so I need to do this sooner rather than later before I tread a path......
We still have a potato planter so we're going to try and plant some seed potatoes and maybe some other veg in pots too.

Last weekend we treked across country to Llangollen in mid Wales for the trading day at Quiltfest. It was nice to be in temperatures above freezing for a change!
I spoiled myself and bought a piece of original quilt art. My friend Ferret had an exhibition of her work at Quiltfest and she was selling pieces of demo work she was making on her longarm at the show.
Ok I actually have two pieces as my parents also bought me one for my upcoming birthday.
This is the piece I bought

I will get them framed by a local lady and then hang them. I'm trying to get things for the house that are unique and not mass produced and made by local craftsmen too.

Not much sewing has gone on still. Work seems to dominate most of my days and I end up chilling with my pc in the evenings rather than doing something creative, oh and doing the washing up :o(
I want to design a quilt that I can kit for the new Grandeur fabrics that were delivered the other week............will try and do that before the quilt show at Chilford next month. In the meantime I think I will do a bit more quilting on the Kaleidoscope quilt
