Oh Spring......How Beautiful You Are!!




A lovely welcome to my little placeIt is a place where spring is gushing with loveliness everywhere. It is a place where blossom after blossom delights the eyes.


It is a place where the dutch irises are starring in the garden. They have popped up everywhere. These silky, orchid-like flowers are truly the easiest of plants to grow. After planting the bulbs you can forget about them and they will gift the garden with flowers year after year; after year. 'Tis truly a vision splendid.



Remember my little slipper chair?? How pretty it looks nestled among the irises. =)



It is a place where sweet flower hexies (or perhaps I should say, hexdens) have been growing too; albeit ever so slowly. These pretties once again bedecking oodles of blossoms; this time the wisteria.

It is Sunday evening here at my little spring place. I see in my crystal ball a little hexie stitching as I watch TV. Thus far I have fashioned forty little flower hexdens, then stitched them onto the squares.....about eighty to go I should think. Just as well I love  EPP. =)

Thank you for gifting me with your sweet visit. May each one of you lovelies enjoy a week filled with beauty Until the next time...............





Linking this week to Kathy's Slow Sunday Stitching at Kathy's Quilts.

  1. Those hexies are adorable - rounded ends! Spring came and went for us in Sydney so your beautiful blooms are a sight for dry eyes. Not as dry as our country cousins who somehow are holding on under the most difficult of drought conditions.

  8. Love spring flowers and hexies. I'm exactly the opposite now, a chilly rain hitting the windows and stripping the trees of their lovely fall color. Happy Stitching!

  13. Your garden and flowers are gorgeous. I always love seeing your pictures. We are just beginning to cool down for winter, although it has been in the 80's in the afternoons, but right now at 8:30 in the morning it is 44, actually chilly out there.

  14. Little by little I am beginning to understand the hexie thing. The part that confused me was sewing them together but I think I understand, now. YOU are a flower fairy! I think it's brilliant to take pretty furniture outdoors for spring photo shoots! Guess what? It's snowing here today. No spring for us! LOL. Sending lots of love your way, sweet Kim.

  19. Your irises are gorgeous. It is fall here and the temps are getting cooler. We are awash in rust, orange and gold leaves. I love all of your spring flowers. You quilt blocks blend right in with them. How lovely they are.

  20. Beautiful-love the flowers and Hexies on squares. We're into fall in the States and the leaves are gorgeous but the wind and rain is howling, letting us know Winter is around the corner. Hoping for little snow this winter so I can spend more time stitching and crocheting. Thanks for sharing

  23. :) Yes, I can see how lovely your flowers are though your photos, Kim. It nearly seems as though I smell them, too. I know that you are enjoying them as well as the warmth. Spring is a gorgeous time of year.

  24. wow that is gorgeous blooming, I love flowering trees most of all about spring, just beautiful!!
    The iris's are a different type then I have, very soft looking.
    Your flowering hexies look fabulous too, so fun to see them come together :)

  27. Your garden is blooming as well as your quilt pattern, Kim! You are surrounded by Spring blossoms both inside and outside. I noticed that you have rounded the outside edges on your hexies. How I wish I could make one of these gorgeous quilts. Maybe it's the cutting of all the pieces that stops me??!! I look forward to seeing your hexie patches grow and grow! Happy Spring to you!

  28. How delightful. Irises are my favorite flower but they don't last nearly long enough. You have extended their life, however, by putting them on your lovely chair. The growing hexden collection is charming. We are enjoying a last bit of warmth these next two days, but the cold is on it's way.

  29. Oh, what beauty from the other side of the world! The iris's are just gorgeous and your chair is stunning with them. All the beauty, even the cows (are they yours?) shows perfectly how Spring is bursting out all over. I have taken some fading garden Fall pictures to make a picture collage but I am so NOT tech savvy that I could not make it work. I have taken your request to heart to share a little of my place so I will have to send them via email...

  30. Oh my, I just love that you are back here with more oh-so-gorgeous pictures. You are definitely right in the middle of a spring-time paradise. I can't look enough at all the wonderful photos - of bloom and blossom all over the place. I continue to be amazed how you are able to transfer all of that beauty onto cloth. WOW!

    1. Yes, Spring is frolicking down here at the moment, casting her beauty wherever she will. Hence the need for me to capture all the gloriousness in each happy snap. =) As for "transferring all that beauty onto cloth".....I suppose it is easy to do when one's fabric stash is overflowing with gorgeous flowery fabric. Thank you for your sweet visit, Mary. Kim Xx

  31. our garden is beautiful just like a fairy tale.
    The Dutch irises are really lovely and it is so nice that they come back every year.
    I bet your quilt will be exceptionally great.

    1. It is a delight to have you drop by, lovely Loes, and gift me with your beautiful comments....thank you. As for me popping into your lovely place; it is always a treat to see what amazing concoction of a cake you have baked each week. The only problem is that I am always left feeling rather hungry. Oh, how I would love to enjoy a slice of one of your treats. 'Tis such a pity I live way down here and you live way up there. =) Kim Xx

  42. Your flowers are wonderful, and I love your hexy blocks. It's so good to see all those flowers blowing, as like everywhere in the northern hemisphere, it's Fall here in France... Pretty colors, but it's getting chilly too ;))

  43. Kim - you are indeed blessed with such a gorgeous garden. Everywhere you look is beauty. I am partial to the wisteria - such a graceful, stunning vine. As always, I enjoy how you use fabric and/or your garden as your photo studio. A feast for the eyes.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I really didn't want to open your post because I just knew you were going to rub it in that you're enjoying spring and pretty flowers. Here it is dull, dull, dull and rainy. No dreaded white stuff - yet - but it's all around us. Ah well, I'll just have to live vicariously through you for a few months!

  48. I think I need to spend half of my year here in Virginia and the other half where you live! Your spring flower photos are gorgeous! While I love the fall colors, fall makes me sad because it means that winter is near. I'll live vicariously through you, Kim!

  49. I never get tired of visiting your beautiful blog. Your garden and your stitched hexies are amazing. I would love to sit in your garden and just watch the breeze fluttering among the blossoms. Oh, and the smell of those blossoms must be enchanting :)
    Thanks for sharing, it's always a treat.

  50. Gorgeous! Amazing! I love all your photos. It was so wonderful to see pink cherries in bloom, wisteria and the blue irises because Finland is entering to colorless winter!

    1. The wisteria, both its flowers and fragrance is intoxicating isn't it. It is one of my favourites too. 'Tis such a pity that it flowers for such a short period. Thank you for your sweet visit, lovely Jann. Your visits always sprinkle happiness to my day. Kim Xx

  54. Hi Kim, what a magical post! Wouldn't it be amazing to travel around the word, following spring? I guess that you would have to have either summer or winter in between, but how glorious would that be?
    You must have so much fun with you photo shoots! Thanks so much for sharing these. Your EPPs are so beautiful. I would never have thought to place them on flowered background fabrics. I'm sure that they will be beautiful!

  55. This post is a breath of spring for all of us dreading the thought of heading into winter months. Those iris are beautiful. Your chair fits in there perfectly. So clever.

    I love your hexie flowers. The fussy cutting is done beautifully. They look so pretty hanging on the line and waving in the spring breeze.

    I’ll just pop back here when I need a spring boost over the next few months.
