Things that made me happy in March

March was a hectic work month and the sewing room hasn't seen much action.
There are many things which have made me happy this month:
Beautiful quilts in my local show

Learning new skills

Using old skills beautifully

And of course one thing makes me particularly happy

Many changes are planned for April so hopefully my attention can switch back to my sewing.
Have a lovely Easter!

March stitching

The pattern for The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery woodland sampler was sent out on Friday night which wouldn't have come at a better time for me. Hubby was away, I had a giant bar of chocolate in the fridge and the dog had loads of new toys to keep him quiet.
A few hours later and I had finished it.

Such a cute little mushroom. Can't wait for April now :)

Gorgeous additions to my stash

I went to my local quilt shop this morning and I got these gorgeous fabrics.

I love the dressmakers patterns fabric and have plans for every inch of this metre.
I also had lots of deliveries recently.
For ages I have tried to get some cherish nature mode charm packs and finally managed to get some online. It seemed to sell very quickly here when it was released. This will eventually be a spring quilt for our sofa.

I also indulged and bought the kit for Roslie Quinlan's Dance of the Heart. I have loved it for a long time but talked myself out of buying it. In the end I decided it would be a present for myself.

Now on with the stitching :)
