It's May today!

I say it every month, and I'll say it again, where did that last month go?!  May already!  Let's hope that it brings the promise of Spring and ekk, dare I say it, even a hint of Summer?  Some sunshine and warmth for a continued period of time would be amazing!! 
April was a busy month.  For any new readers, it started of really well for me, with a little trip to Lucerne in Switzerland with one of my friends.  I won the flights in a competition, so it was a great excuse for a little mini break, and we had a awesome time. 
I even managed to do a little EPP on the train, using my Summersville Spring fabrics.

And I found some EPP inspiration on the floor of the hotel restaurant, of all places.  (Sorry, not the best picture, the important businessmen having their breakfast were probably wondering why a girl was taking a photo of the floor, so I had to be quick!)
The other exciting news last month was that I now have my quilts and bunting on display at a lovely little place called The Harbour Gallery.  You can read about it in more detail here.
I also managed a few makes this month, and here is the customary 1st of the month collage :-)
Main picture: My Anchors Away quilt top, that I designed myself
Top right: The back of my Anchors Away quilt.  Only 72 x 2" squares for the back!
Middle right: EPP hexies
Bottom Right: My display at the Harbour Gallery. 
And if that weren't enough, I also read and reviewed the fabulous new book by one of my favourite quilters, Sarah Fielke.
Phew, that was a busy month!  I wonder what May will bring?  As well as finishing quilting my Anchors Away quilt I have another in the pipeline...I can't wait to share it with you.
I hope you all had a good month too.  Do stop by and say hello if you get the chance, I love hearing from so many like-minded people!
