Spring Rains

Its been raining a lot lately, much needed after a very dry Winter. Spring, but its hellish hot during the day, by 3pm, heavy thunder storms, they don't last long and its much cooler after a storm. Last night was like a war zone here, Diwali and Guy Fawkes on the same day! can you imagine. I had to tranquilise my dogs. I'm not against celebrations and fireworks    
(the pretty ones) just want the big loud bangs to be banned. Every year fireworks cause hundreds of terrified dogs and cats to become injured, lost or killed as they try to escape the noise. We don't buy fireworks and neither does my neighbour, thank God, but my other neighbour owns a blasting company and I am very sure they weren't fireworks he was letting off. No respect or consideration for animals, I was very angry last night - and I am so glad it is pouring with rain tonight.;)  
I made two coin purses from this lovely tutorial at Timotei very easy. Finished the stitching on #4 Raggedy and made 3D flowers. Busy working on this quilt that I started in 2007!!
For me, the most difficult part of making a quilt is the quilting.
