Spring flowers are everywhere...

Even in my sewing room!  I walked into my LQS the other week and saw some lovely bloomin' fabric...little did I know, they are the latest arrivals from Liberty.  Bought a roll of quarter yard cuts, that's one of each fabric they had in-store.  They are far too pretty to cut just yet, I keep taking them off my fabric shelf and look at them...imagining all sorts of wonderful quilts to be made!

And when I haven't been doing that, I've been out in the garden.  My spring tulips finally opened and they are just a treat to see when I arrive home, so cheery.  There is much work to be done in the yard, even though it is a much smaller yard than my previous home.  All in good time though, right?  A garden is an ever evolving project, moving things here and there, planning, digging, planting, watering, weeding and taking time to enjoy the results of course!


I was immediately drawn to the blue fabrics...

...but noticed the pastels pretty.  Are these considered low volume I wonder?  Maybe not the blue, pink and yellow one.

What to do with these beauties???

Now for some real flowers!  I planted 50 bulbs last fall and all but 5 have come up.

I love the shades of pink on the Bergenia's vibrant!

Picked this up at my local Home Depot.  Their selection of planters gets better every year.


  1. I love those Liberty prints! Really must get my hands on some one of these days. Did you purchase them from Traditional Pastimes? I haven't ever been in the store but will surely do so next time I'm in the city!

  2. Very pretty fabrics. I would say that the yellow and pink are low volume but not the blue floral - at least on my computer screen. I love tulips. Funny thing, we were in Home Depot this weekend when my hubby mentioned that we should have gone to Rona - they have Air Miles. So, we put away what was in our cart and headed over to the Canadian store. Got my plants there, along with the garbage bags we needed.

  3. Doesn't it feel good to get into the garden and get your hands dirty? Just make sure you wash them before you go fondle your fabric a little more. lol.


I love hearing from you - thanks for leaving a comment.
