Going ever faster

I thought last year went quickly, this year is vanishing even faster. Next week is March.
How did that happen so quickly?

Been a little busy the past week or so. Another course at the V&A- like buses, they come in pairs- this time a 3 day Millinery course. I have trimmed hats and re-shaped hats but never made one from scratch, so I felt it time I tried. It was brilliant. Nice people ( if you want to buy a super stylish hat, from a lovely lady, go to Imogen's Imagination here or here ), an expert tutor and, as the course was making hats based on ideas sketched at the wonderful exhibition of Chinese Imperial Robes, free visits to the exhibition over the three days. And,oh bliss, wandering around the museum in lunch hours.

Lots to catch up with on returning- my, how everything in the garden had grown...major clearing and pruning in the moments- yes, I do mean moments- of sunshine... a painting to finish

... a scarf to crochet, bit experimental this one, but it is my very first attempt at crochet

... a corsage to make with another bit of crochet and some needlefelting

....oooh and did I mention CAKE?

But what of my Sampler Quilt?
I confess that has taken a bit of a back seat, but it will return once I have made the Easter Decorations for my Easter Open Studio and done two more paintings.
Looks like March might race by too.
