Its Spring!

 Both my children came home in August. Its always nice to have them home. This week I have been trying to catch up with the mystery quilt along, I managed to get part two done and the flying geese strips.

                                               part two is done.

                                           flying geese done.

I made this cushion for my daughter - she has a brown miniature dachshund named Bella. When I saw this pattern I had to make it for her. I used a faux suede.

I love this shrub, I have several in the garden and they are flowering at the moment - Mackaya bella. Its also known as the forest bell bush. Its a larval host plant for the Blue Pansy butterfly.

 I have four dresden plate cornerstones and four french braid strips to make - lots of cutting. 


  1. I love your flying geese and the dog cushion is fun! I also like your garden photos. We are just heading into Autumn so you Spring pictures are a lovely change :)

  2. Well done on the flying geese and the progress on the mystery quilt. I will have to save this project for a rainy day. Too much to do right now.
    The cushion is very cute, and it seems that your garden is full of life already!
