A Return to the Garden

It's only been about three weeks but it feels like much more than that. I'm talking about the Holly Bazaar preparations. It seems like that's been the only sewing I have done as of late and it was nice to pick up some hand sewing that wasn't a pot holder binding or a little felt bird that needed to be put together.

I found my little fruit basket of 1 3/8" blocks for Danuta's Garden and spent a little time putting together tiny four-patches. As you can see from the photo above, a couple of the shorter sashing pieces also got put together and now need to be trimmed.

Nice as the holiday prints are to work with it was a welcome change to get back to this varied collection of floral prints.

As luck would have it, this is what the weatherman delivered this afternoon so, pretty as it was, a virtual stroll through the cheery garden prints was a welcome diversion....M

That does look like a nice change from your christmas sewing. The snow looks enchanting.

Love all your pretty floral fabrics. Sewing with them is the perfect antidote to snow! Though I love snow too...:o)
