I'm continuing to work through all the unfinished piles of stuff that have been cluttering the workroom for far too long. You may remember seeing this quilt before!! I started doing quite a bit of hand quilting and seed stitching on it ages ago but it was looking like it might never get finished so today I pinned it on the longarm and set to work.
My challenge is to 'draw' the tree shapes across the middle of the quilt with my quilting so that they break through the solid vertical band.
I'll let you see how it turns out soon. Just outside my workroom door is this lovely distraction! It's an Amalanchier and at its absolute best this week despite the turbulent April weather.
I see it every time I go in and out of the workroom and love the delicate blossom against the bronze of the new leaves.
While I had my camera in hand I thought I'd try and show you how all the frogspawn in the garden pond was faring. If that heaving mass of tadpoles become frogs we'll be knee deep by the summer!
Finally, a question! Does anyone know what this is? He was on the outside of the window last night and quite reluctant to leave so I had plenty of time to take his picture this morning.
Here he is from another angle. Aren't his markings beautiful?
I'd love to hear from anyone who can shed light on his name!
Thanks for reading today - please come back again soon! Linda
