Cloth dolls and anything with yellow

As the weather was pretty grim over Easter we knew we couldn't have our teaparty in the wood as we had planned. So on monday morning I rushed around and tried to make the house have a springtime look. Tony brought home some yellow tulips and and I cut some yellow flowers from the garden.I found my favourite table cloth which is decorated with embroidered yellow flowers and grouped together every cloth doll I still have and perched them on what I think was meant to hold candles.

I made some lemony cupcakes and cheesey scones,a.fruit cake and sandwiches.Kind friends brought more,even a gift of a yellow teapot. Then I couldn't resist throwing my just (almost finished quilt) over the sofa  though the colours didn't fit . I now have to finish the other quilt. All the pieces were meant to be one huge quilt but two the same size, if different happened. Next I want to make a crazy quilt covered in lace etc,I have so much it would use some of it up.The photo of the quilt is too pink,the background to most of the materials is cream.
