Applique and Spring.

What do the two have in common?  Nature, lots of flowers, leaves, stems and berries.  In a rainbow of colour.
 Playing with colour, this petal had two colours.
 All of this is to practice needle turn applique.
The House quilt, Home Sweet Home.
At Retreat Catherine did this ladybug, it was a mystery paper piece pattern.
 A close up of the hexie project, showing the colours.
As the weather has turned warmer, we have turned our attention to the garden.
Who can stay indoors, with such beauty, outside?


  1. Such a lovely blog Maggie, full of colour, beauty and nature. I Love seeing your flowers in the garden, living in the tropics I do miss the spring flowers so it is lovely to see them here; I so nice to see you adding them in your appliqué. Love that wee house so so cute. I would go crazy trying to make the pieced ladybug????? Hugs Glenda

  2. Sunshine is very inviting after months of cold.
