Where have all my tulips gone?

Where have all my tulips gone?
Long time passing...
Where have all my tulips gone?
Long time ago...
Where have all my tulips gone?
Gone to this guy, everyone.
When will I ever learn?

Happy Easter Everyone!

At Easter I am reminded that:
spring always follows winter
morning chases away the night
light overcomes darkness
hope is stronger than despair
life has triumphed over death.

A Week in the Life

Have you checked out my website,, lately?
I've been busy dying wool to sell...
 And I've added new patterns, kits, and sale patterns.
Speaking of new patterns, I just have to show you some tiny glimpses of a few of the quilts that will be included in my next book with Martingale, due out next summer.
Mary Flynn at is doing the machine quilting on some of them.
I just love her ideas!
Aren't they wonderful?
 Yesterday was a bit crazy--I woke up to this!
Almost unheard of in BC in mid-April!
But today it's gone and it feels more like spring is on its way.
I designed this little cross-stitch to share with you.
Happy spring, everyone!

New Patterns for Spring

My "Garden Pathways" quilt has been fixed!
Here's the mended version.
 Thanks to those wonderful ladies, Rhonda and Linda at Quilted Cats Hideaway, you can't even tell where the mistake was!  Thank you!!! You're my heroes!
 I'll be adding "Garden Pathways" to my website this week.
I also just finished this design--"Bluebirds on a Wire."
It's a pattern for this wallhanging and for the fabric-covered box in front of it.
I'm not sure if this picture is too blue for the pattern cover.  What do you think?
 Speaking of blue, look at the wonderful sky in this picture sent to me by my friend Martine, who lives near Tours in France.  This is my "Chickens Under the Stars" pattern.  Didn't she do a great job?
Merci for sharing, Martine!
