September is here, and Spring has arrived

It has been a long cold, wet winter this year, and when I have been home, I have been closeted inside in the warm, keeping busy with quilting, and cutting mystery quilts.  A couple of sunny days this week tempted me out in the garden, and I found that spring has arrived with all it's glory of plants in flower. (And those pesky weeds also!) I might need to find some time to pull those weeds this weekend.

Last weekend the wedding quilt was picked up by DD3, and I have received this photo of it on their bed. It looks very much at home I think, and they are very happy with it.

And while we are into the grey, here is what I am working on this week. I have been drawing ideas on paper for weeks now, and keep changing my ideas. I started on Wednesday, and thought I had a plan, but yesterday this changed again. As a mostly traditional quilter, I have to say I am a bit out of my "comfort zone" with this quilt. I have a vision of what I want to do, so hope it comes off! I am now at the stage where there is no going back, so hope to make some good progress today as it needs to be finished real soon. It looks like I am at the end, but there is lots not quilted where you can't see it.

As I am still in the dressing gown, and it is now 7am, it must be time to head for the shower and start my day with Max.

Blessings, From Jude
