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.
