For over a week now we have been enjoying wonderful spring weather, unseasonably warm days and explosions of blooms all around.

SpringThe upshot of this is that much of my days have been spent outdoors with my boys and sewing time has really only been sqeezed in here and there. Train journeys are always a good time to get some work done and this week I made use of my commute to and from work to get the pieces ready for my latest EPP project.

Now my dragonfly not only has a body but it also has the first pair of wings.

Linking up to SEWjo Saturday over on My Go-Go life.

  1. Beautiful!
    Just got back from holidays and the little garden for our apartment building looks just like yours with all the primroses out. Glad that spring is finally on its way…
