Spring has Sprung

Well haven't we had a lovely few days - the weather has certainly turned spring. Though they say rain on the weekend.

My garden has some beautiful flowers in bloom and the orange tree is laden with yummy fruit - it's a good crop this year.
Ruth has also been busy on her Show Quilt - here she is being watched over by Zoe the cat, who has taken a liking to sitting/sleeping on the sewing machine - a bit frustrating when she switches on the bobbin winder. 

Also has a tendency to fall off, if you get a speed up - so you have to take it carefully. Funny though when it happens.

Spring must have arrived, a picnic in the garden and my girls are enjoying an icy pole - now there's a sign, though icy poles can happen in the middle of winter with children too.
Only problem with nice weather is that you feel like you should be out in it - I'd rather be sewing.
Cheers Jennifer

Ruth's quilt looks lovely. I can't wait to see it in the Exhibition. I love the photo of the two of them under the umbrella's eating icy poles!
