Spring has sprung

Spring has sprung here. This weekend the weather has been amazing - bright and sunny. And the plants are starting to get going now. As you'll see in the next few photos, narcisii, snowdrop (next to Buddha) and a crocus. They're looking a bit lonely at the mo but I'm sure lots of other things will start appearing very soon.
And here are some of my attempts at the creativity thing. The idea is that you change the scale of the shapes you've cut out and see how they work in a realtionship. As DH often says I'm so happy with some pictures, a glue stick and a sketchbook.

And finally here is another little look at part of my Bosworth Water Tower piece. I think I've finished the quilting now - but I might change my mind at the next class... LOL
I've alos sent in my entry form for Trentham, Stoke-on-Trent - so has the rest of the group. So now we're all committed - if you know what I mean.
Hope you've all had a great weekend. Hopefully England are winning at Rugby and then we're off to the pub for a coffee.
PS -please excuse my spelling - the spellchecker on Blogger seems to have given up. Is anyone else having the same problem?

I keep noticing bulbs coming through everywhere I go. It is good to be getting out of the dark days of January. Your wallhanging looks great.
I love your watertower piece of art! Wonderful!
Everything is coming through here as well. I love blue skies!

Blogger spellchecker has definitely packed in - they seem to know this but don't seem to be able to do anything about it!

Outstanding Projects

Do you remember when this... became this? Well - It's time to get it finished.  This is my next project.  I intend to hand quilt kit with big black stitches. I always like to have a hand quilting project.
Last night I went to the Lutterworth Embroiderers Guild talk.  It was a great talk from Gizella K Warburton.  She shared her work with us - both textile work and photographs.  I really enjoyed seeing both.  Do have a look at her work.  It's abstract and uses some great fabrics which give the feel of the countryside.  These images give you a hint at the work Gizella produces. I hope to make progress with a few things this weekend and I'll post about it next week. Have a great weekend.
Hello all, Apologies to you for the gap between posts.  I've been a little preoccupied with getting our bathroom sorted. It's amazing how you can have work done in one room of the house and the rest of the house turns into absolute chaos. And why has everything started to break, microwave, washing machine, kettle...  Anyway - as I keep being reminded it has to get worse before it gets better!
Our little kittens are growing fast - they are quite leggy now and still very fast. I'll try to get a photo of them. It will have to be when they're asleep.
On the sewing front I'm still working on my NYB swap. I'm making progress but the deadline is a little nearer than I'd like. Tomorrow I hope to be able to make some more progress with the NYB without my little helpers.
An exciting development has also been happening. I've been teaching at Coles in Nottingham. They have a really well laid out spacious first floor room for classes.  It has a lift so anyone with mobilit…
