Hello my lovelies. I hope you all enjoyed some warm sunshine. It’s been a brilliant day in my little corner of the northeast of England. I was desperate to get out in the sunshine this morning. So I stepped out into the garden to have a little look around. And this is what I found. The potted violas look splendid …..
And this is my first peony of the year. Pink peonies are my favourite flowers. While they’re in season I try to buy them as often as I can from M&S. They look fantastic in the house.
While I was taking a few photos in the garden I heard something that I didn’t recognise at first. I kept listening until I worked out that this little nesting box has occupants in it again this year …..
For the past three years I have had families occupying this nesting box. We waited such a long time for this nesting box to be used by little birds. It sits just outside my sewing room window. So I will be sure to pay better attention when I’m in there to be sure to see the parent birds bringing food back to the nest. At the moment they seem to be invisible but they are around.
It wouldn’t be a proper post if I didn’t show you some sewing or new project related progress. Well last evening I decided to work on my Quilt on the Grow blocks …..
This is number 16 of 52. I spent the evening sewing the fabric around the paper templates and joined one triangle of shapes together. I hope to get the next 5 triangles pieced and rest of the block joined together this evening. I need to concentrate on this project for a while now.
It’s been a pretty good day in my little world. I enjoyed a stroll around my little garden which needs a little attention at the moment. The sunshine was so cheery that my garden shall grow more beautiful every week.
So for this evening, this very happy longarm quilter will be working on Quilts on the Grow blocks. I hope you have a super cosy evening doing something you thoroughly enjoy. Until you read me again,
Happy stitching ♥ ♥
