Spring cleaning …

in my sewing studio!
What a funny day, weatherwise, we’ve had today. This morning it was frosty on the grass and poor Flora tippy-toed down to the pond in her webbed feet! We jaunted – what a lovely word that is; a bit of a trip with no particular purpose – to Salisbury and enjoyed a wander around through the busy market square and then along Fisherton Street. We love Salisbury and sat outside enjoying lattes in the sunshine – chilly but sunny – just fine!
This afternoon I’ve been doing a bit of a spring clean. No photos because, silly me, I thought I’d charged the camera battery but hadn’t! It’s all tickety-boo with wools and corduroys safely stashed and yards and yards of patchwork and cushion fabrics colour stashed (well, sort of) there are Soooooooo many colours and patterns! I L O V E LOVE Love love my fabrics.
I couldn’t start another quilt without having a thorough sort out and it’s been done, finito, sorted!
In the middle of all the sorting and stacking, we had a rainstorm, hail and then thunder. I dashed downstairs to shut the lid on Flora’s nest box which I leave open to give it an airing most days. Her bed was still quite dry and sheltered, so she’ll be tucked up in there tonight safe and warm. Phew – then back upstairs to finish the task.
Now it’s bright & sunshiney with scudding clouds of so many different colours – pinks, greys and white against a winter-blue sky.
Hopefully some photos again soon, when the camera – and the photographer – are fully charged again!
I Soooooo Love the Holidays – yippee. Such freedom.
PS Thank you to everyone who popped by for a chat on Sunday – it was lovely to meet so many interesting people and new customers. I’m brimming full of new ideas for the next markets in May – a little bit of Spring Fever I think – bursting with energy & plans!
