Around here

definite signs of spring with new spring flowers popping up each day and my rhubarb is sprouting nicely


my nurse factory is progressing well with all of the bodies now finished so I just need to crochet the hair – colour and length specific to each person – and sew it on then the hat and arms


Some strange sights on a walk by the water


a massive fish?


a crocodile?

or just a lump of something throwing interesting reflections!

I went to a quilt expo on Friday with my Mum – a throng of ladies of a certain age examining the exhibits and buying.  We enjoyed seeing all the creative work with patchwork (traditional and modern), quilting and embroidery.  But I was not tempted to buy up supplies.  There were signs up asking that photos of the works on show were not shared on internet – so I can’t share any of my photos here. Fair enough if people want to protect their creative ideas but I can’t remember the last time I saw a similar sign as most places seem to have accepted / are resigned to the click and share world – do you still see such signs around?

No signs of spring here right now - 8 to 10 inches of snow - but it is melting - soon spring. Love the photos.

I'm delighted to see the nurse factory growing! How special that they will be individualized!

I haven't seen a sign like that at quilt shows (which I attend with Mama sometimes), but at the Scrapbook Expo last week there were booths with pre-designed page kits and they wouldn't even let you take photos.

Love the crocodile! No I haven't seen any notices like that around here. I'll keep a look out. Absolutely love the nurse factory.

The nurse factory is just brilliant.

I have seen signs on stall of hand crafted goods asking for no photographs..and thought it was a bit of a pity. Bloggers love to look at a nice stall full of stuff
