Spring is definately here, we have had some beautiful warmer days and my garden has loved it. I am getting my vegie garden beds ready for planting. First on the agenda is pumpkins, real ones and patchwork ones. I have been making lots of pumpkin blocks, this pattern is from Lori Holt. Its such a sweet blocks and its a great way to use up your scraps. I loved this pumpkin so much I decided to make a small mini quilt. The black border really frames it,
Then I decided to make 2 more pumpkins and make a table runner. I added little stars into these pumpkins. Isn't it just the cutest.
I have been doing some small cross stitch projects and I used this one to make a pin cushion. Its not finished yet as I ordered some crushed walnut shells to add when I stuff it. I read that walnut shells help fill the pin cushion and give it some shape and weight. Hope it works.
Today I have sewn lots of tiny squares and made the middle of my runner. Its not finished yet but I love it so far. The colours are beautiful and most of them are from my fig tree box.
My garden is full of blooms and looking beautiful, its so lovely to see a burst of colour after such a long drab winter.
