I GOT TO WORK...

....yesterday and made my blocks for Julianne, she is my partner this month for the Christmas-Block-Swap, she wanted stars....and yes that has an "S" on the end xx She asked if I minded making 2... that's OK because I will get 2 back xx SO.. she wanted one in modern fabrics..


and one in sparkly fabric..


think I managed to fulfil the brief there xx

This pretty little quilt flew in yesterday from New York ..


it is my Dream-of-spring quilt from the swap organised by Michelle at The Quilting Gallery. I was trying for an artistic shot here!! Just ended up with a shadow!! Still you can see our lovely sunshine xx.....


will stick to using the old bench at the top of the garden xx While I was out there I found a few brave flowers poking their heads above the parapet..


MAY WELL have a garden this year... fingers crossed x

Keep smiling

Diane xx

I have just had a photo challenge too. Finding a place the right size with no wind and no bushes and no shadows ... on a day that kids are playing ball in the park ... Well, yours is indeed nice. I like the first star particularly.

Very pretty stars. I love the fabrics you used.

Loving the little insights into your garden! And your blocks look lovely as usual!

I do hope your garden keeps on keeping on! Your stars are lovely too.

Janet said...

Love your stars. And your beautiful spring quilt.

Your stars are lovely and that is a great swap quilt. The disadvantage of the gardens trying hard to catch up is that the weeds are doing the same - aargh.
