Its almost Spring

Yesterday as I was hanging out my washing I looked at the mountains that we can see from our back garden and to my surprise it was covered in snow, It was so pretty, my photo really doesn't do it justice. The wind was icy but it was a nice day. My bulbs are doing well, only some have flowered so far, we have jonquils every where in the yard.

Hyacinths look so pretty.


And the daffodils just make you smile.



Yesterday and today I spent my time putting my basket quilt together, its nearly there, only 6 baskets to go. I hope you found some sewing time today.

Happy quilting and greeting from Finland!!!
