Spring Birdie Pouch and a chance to win something rather lovely.....

No, I have no idea where April has gone, it was there last time I looked!  Finally we've had some sunshine, and nature is relishing it! The garden has sprung into life and I took a couple of days out to try and get it into some order.

 I've been busy designing more projects and teaching my class at Poppy Patchwork on Fridays, which is such fun. Here are some very poor photos  (sorry, light is appalling today) of the design I just finished in tribute to spring. This was  a nice change as I'm concentrating on Halloween and Christmas at the moment, which I'm finding very hard....

There is a new doll waiting in the wings,  she's a little different from usual. She needs shoes before she meets everyone, and is getting rather cross with me that it's taking me so much time to finish them.

Finally,  some lucky person has a chance to win a gorgeous print from my talented friend Valerie Greeley, artist, illustrator and author. Valerie has a really lovely blog (with a wonderful name) so do please visit her at acornmoon and  enter her giveaway.

I hope you're all full of the joys of spring  yourselves this week!x

  4. Jules, I am so glad spring is here too!
    Your birdy bag is neat and sweet with the spring green colours.
    Looking forward to seeing your new doll design soon when she is finished. ;-)

    Spring good wishes, Jules.
