It's strawberry season...

...and while I love fresh strawberries,I'm also partial to a bit of strawberry jam. Yum! Especially on scones!

My jam is actually a strawberry/ apple combo, but the apple flavour isn't noticeable, and it makes the strawberries go  further. Win/win!

Although I haven't done much in the way of crafting lately, I did manage to finish this cute quilt for a friend's grandson.

I backed and bound it in red which I think has finished it nicely, along with some simple machine quilting.

I also bought him a copy of the book to go with the quilt. Can't start the reading habit too soon I say!

It's Spring!!!

Here I am... after a much longer blogging hiatus than I intended. The recent winter months left me rather uninspired to do anything at all, much less anything creative. Spring arriving has me feeling positive again... although my thoughts are turning more towards redecorating projects than quilty or crafty ones. Although there is certain to be sewing involved at some point.

I have dusted off my favourite decorating books for a bit of inspiration.

Watch this space!
