While trying to find new inspiration I fell into Pinterest and came upon these terrific quilts by Eleanor McCain!
I love their carefree simple mix of colours and shapes!
I am all for simple these days-so thank you Eleanor for your inspiring works!
Its a rainy day here today and the colours are shinning out to me and so are these warm comfy  bed wrappings here for us . . . .

Computer thoughts

SPRING BIRD

Saw this little chairseat  somewhere online -hooked by Cindy Wiltermood!
I especially like it for its interesting and colourful 
BACKGROUND!
Such a nice way to surround the black bird and  bring colour into the mat!!!
I really like the use of the 
DIRECTION of HOOKING LINES 
to express  this little bird in the  nature that surrounds it! 
Also the braided  edge is a wonderful finish for any mat but here I like the soft colours contrasting the background and bird !
It is hard to join all the 3 strips in a circle -well done Cindy!
