Feeling of spring...

This is how my garden looks to day, still I got a spring feeling. The sun feels a little warmer every day , but cold nigths. - 20 degrees tonigth...
But I see I got spring feelings in my work now.... I want colours...More than white - greay and blue...
So I start discreet... I found 6 of the basket blocks from Bunny Hill... and some soft pink and brown...nice start... Then i found the brown with roses.. beautifull fabric, but not enough for the borders.... then the spring feeling take off..... I found the pink fabric with small girls on ... eccentric but I love it :-) The little quilt made me think of "trollkrem" ( a dessert made of mountain cranberry- because of the colour :-)
Then I got more happy colours in mail - the first of the Make and Bake club... Great red fabrics - a little superbob thread-a recipe and a pincushion pattern... So now I have to deside what fabric to cut in .... I got this from Patchwork with Busyfingers. Love it ;-)
Then I realy got the spring feeling..And start to realy play with colours... I got Vignette in mail and fell for Leanne's Hexagon Quilt - me who don't like to make hexagons, fell realy hard. I have to do a quilt with all that great colours and look at the stitchery hexagons... :-)
So now I'm playing with leftovers and brigth colours. I have found some great helping tools... Sewline gluepen- a MUST have - The Bottom Line superior thread and Milliners Needles.. + a new scissors.... The little green box are filled with hexagons ready to be flowers... So now I'm going to make me some spring flowers :-)
This are my new magasines , who are filled with new temtations of items to make ...
It feel like there are going to be a busy spring... wonder if I have to sleep at nigth...

Have some great "waiting for spring"days - I'm of to make me some flowers.

Hugs :-)
