Hello The weather has cleared a little to enjoy the garden and see that spring is truly on its way. Here are a few pictures taken in my garden for you to enjoy. [caption id="attachment_524" align="alignnone" width="300" caption="My House"][/caption] [caption id="attachment_519" align="alignnone" width="224" caption="Hibiscus"][/caption] [caption id="attachment_521" align="alignnone" width="224" caption="Magnolia"][/caption] [caption id="attachment_522" align="alignnone" width="300" caption="Vereya"][/caption] OOPs not sure what this one is called, I was lucky to be given a cutting of this one and it has turned out a lovely shrub full of colour. Now onto some of the pets. There are some camera shy pets missing, not matter how hard I tried my dog boy was not interested in having his photo taken. ( go figure ) he usually loves attention. [caption id="attachment_525" align="alignnone" width="224" caption="My name is Taka and 'no' I have not been into the biscuit bowl again today."][/caption]   [caption id="attachment_526" align="alignnone" width="224" caption="My name is Yappy and is this my best side."][/caption] [caption id="attachment_527" align="alignnone" width="300" caption="Harriet ( aka Henny Penny )"][/caption] [caption id="attachment_528" align="alignnone" width="224" caption="The cat at he back of the chair is Kitty Kat and she looks a little worried about how much room Taka is taking up."][/caption] I hope you enjoyed my little tour and meeting my pets. Happy Stitching

This morning I am sewing the border fabrics together for the top and bottom borders of the Roses quilt. I have selected and range of tone on tone prints some light and some with a little bit of colour to give a bit of interest. I love to mix up the fabrics, using a large selection. Something I find helpful when piecing the strips is to pin at least the end of the seam so the fabrics don't shift while you are sewing and end up with one end longer than the other.

I am not in a hurry to get to the finish line with this quilt, I love the whole process, every step and stitch. This week has had me finding the perfect fabric for the birds, I have used a window to get the perfect area of the fabric to make the birds look their best. Trying many different fabrics, I now have more birds than I need and some to set aside for another quilt. This is usually the case in many of my applique quilts, so I have a little pile of orphan pieces waiting for the perfect quilt to be stitched into.
