The title of this post may suggest that we have had a long Winter behind us, but in fact we have not had any Winter at all! No snow, no ice on the canals, nothing winter-ish. And the first signs of Spring were very early this year, Mother Nature was 2-3 weeks ahead. Daffodils started to flower in February and the first tulips were seen weeks ago. I guess it was all arranged for the NSS-top in The Hague last month 🙂
But not only the flora is showing off, fauna is also flourishing!
Spring is the signal to start new stuff. I had just finished my wall hanging “Theater!” for the exhibition in the Laaktheater in The Hague.
So we went to IKEA and after returning home, Jack assembled the new closet for my quilt room. and I ordered my stash. It’s always nice to run through your fabrics, with some ‘oh yeah’ moments and ‘why should I keep this any longer’ decisions. Besides I needed some space, because I expected an parcel with fabric. And after cleaning up and sorting out: it’s a relief to start piecing!
