Ode to Spring






"It's spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you've got it, you want - oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!"
                                                                                                                                           - Mark Twain





"Is it so small a thing, To have enjoy'd the sun, To have lived light in the spring, To have loved, To have thought, To have done?"
                                                                                                                                - Matthew Arnold








"Awake, thou wintry earth -
Fling off thy sadness!
Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth
Your ancient gladness!"
                                                                                                           - Thomas Blackburn

Time Flies!

Can it really be that a whole month has gone by since our last entry?! How quickly the time has flown since last we spoke. What a whirlwind of adventures we've had... and oh the places we've seen!! We've been to Melbourne, Singapore and London... onto to Birmingham and back to London again. Raced through Sydney.. and now finally home sweet home. We've caught planes and trains and travelled by car. We've walked down lanes, and streets, and roads... upstairs and downstairs.. deep into the underground and to the tops of the highest buildings. We've peddled our wares at trade shows and quilt shows and markets... and met the most wonderful customers; beautiful people who made our hearts sing.

We have so many stories to share, and photos to show! For now we'll post some photos of our little shop at the Melbourne Trade Show... our cosy home for a wintry week in August.
