it’s a quilt – for cowboys!

The colours remind me of prairie cowboys and the focus fabric has bucking broncos galloping across the western plains, lassos whirling!  It’s a perfect single bed quilt for a little boy who dreams of becoming a cowboy when he’s grown up – and this is a ‘college’ style quilt that could easily be taken off to university, as a reminder of home comforts.

I’ll be taking this quilt with me to Alton Makers’ Market tomorrow and some cheeky little foxes will be coming too …

I’m really enjoying getting out and about at the weekends, though I didn’t have far to go last Sunday as the Antiques Vintage & Retro market made it’s monthly appearance on Winchester’s High Street.  It was a beautiful day, with just a hint of warmth in the Spring sunshine.

In the garden, colour is beginning to appear in the Spring bulbs …

and a secretive visitor was ‘spotted’ in my curly willow tree  …

down by the pond, the snowdrops have disappeared, the daffs are in full bloom alongside the later flowering and taller ‘Snowflake’ snowdrops – and the bluebells are almost out

Enjoy your weekend.

  • Good luck with the Makers Market. Glad you are enjoying your house reno too! Not sure we will have any daffodils this year because the crazy snow and very cold temps may have done them in.

  • That’s a fun cowboy quilt. Hope the market goes well – your stand in Winchester looks very appealing. I’m not far away from you – Basingstoke – but found you via Crazy Mom Quilts!
