Spring Again

I thought that Spring had arrived a few weeks ago. 
But then it snowed.  Does that mean it was winter again??!
But thankfully  normal service has resumed and there are blue skies aplenty, it's warming up and the daffodils are starting to bloom. 

The tractors are racing down our road, in anticipation of harvesting the fields.

And I was finally able to get outside and take a half decent photo of this... the central panel of my latest quilt using the Out at Sea collection by Sarah Jane. 

I just love this fabric and those cheeky little pirates;

I designed an anchor and used the raw edge applique method, placing it over 2 inch squares.

So I have decided to call it Anchors Away.  For obvious reasons!

I hope that the sun is shining and that you are having a lovely day too.

Thank you so much for stopping by.
