Blossom

Now, this is the sort of stuff I don't mind blowing past the window!  Without my lenses in this morning, I did briefly think it was snowing but to my relief it was only the glorious blossom blowing off the tree.


There is something so pretty and fresh about blossom., maybe, it's because it's the beginning of Spring.


I hope everyone has enjoyed the Easter holiday's, I feel slightly sad that it's coming to the end of the break, and next week will be routine, packed lunches, school run and after school clubs......but the weather is getting better and there's another 2 bank holiday's coming up next month.

We recently popped to Ikea for a curtain pole, and whilst there this somehow popped into the trolley (yes I know you don't need a trolley for a pole, but....).

I love the colours, and on closer inspection, I noticed that each triangle hadn't been stitched individually.  The whole quilt is infact 1 piece of fabric.  They've then stitched down each triangle giving the impression that they are individual pieces of fabric.  I wish I could have done that with my patchwork curtain!!



I'm hankering after another project now, which makes hubby slightly nervous with the fear that it might involve him!  I think it'll involve fabric so he needn't worry!  I'll let you know when I'm underway!

Enjoy the rest of the week.

Well that blossom is certainly nicer than volcanic ash!! Love that quilt - if it is as nice as it looks why go to the bother of making one eh?!! Enjoy the remainder of the holidays and as you say there are more breaks coming up soon!

Love that quilt, saw it in Ikea on Tuesday. V pretty.
We have blossom blowing down our street at the moment and it is just beautiful. I had it all blown into my hair earlier when I nipped to the shops and a little girl said 'Mummy that girl has been to a wedding' because she thought I had confetti in my hair. Cute huh?
