Spring Garden

Spring has certainly arrived in southern Ontario. My garden is starting to burst into bloom at least 3 weeks earlier than usual. We have had the warmest April on record and the driest.
As you can see the garden is quite a odd shape, we like to think of it as the bow of a ship. When we arrived here 5 years ago it was a waste land of weed trees and no grass. It's changed over the years and now a pleasure to watch as the seasons unfold.

I took a introductory class yesterday for my new machine. It was well worth taking and has given me much more confidence in using it. Today I made a handbag, using the walking foot and also the stitch regulator for free motion quilting. What a joy to use both feet, I though my old Bernina was just about perfect, but this new one is even better.


  1. I love your corner garden and the two doves on the railing. My blog post has two doves in a tree. Your handbag is impressive and lovely, Diane.

  2. Wonderful both the garden and the new bag. I can see you are going to have lots of fun with this new toy.
