April Showers

Since we have been back from our Easter trip, it certainly has been April Showers.  One minute you look out of the window and the sun is shining, next the black skies arrive and we have a short sharp shower.  I decided to take a photo of these before they get battered by the rain.
Pretty arn't they 

The garden is full of colour, and such a beautiful site. I am never sure which season I prefer, but after the long dark winter the Spring flowers certainly make your heart sing.

I am still coughing and spluttering so have not really felt like doing very much, this cold seems to be hanging around just a bit toooo long for my liking, but in the big scheme of things it is just a cold.  So, for the last couple of days I have been on a mission to finish these........

4" New York Beauties

Do you remember me saying I had received this quilt top ready for me to add the next round???  Well, I decided to make my border quite plain and go back to the blue that Nichol had started with. When I say plain, I do have to  add  a bit of interest, so I have made these New York Beauties to add in.  Its taken me longer than usual to make these, but feel I have enough now to make a bit of a statement.  So, tomorrow I hope to get this border 90% finished........ but we will see.
