Spring seems to be scooting by already. Our days are warmer, and some nights too so I’ve put the cotton blanket on our bed and a lighter quilt. Mum has been staying with us for a couple of weeks and we’ve had a lovely time, shopping, exploring, chatting and just being together. While she was with us Mum organised for her little front strip of garden to be redone and it was such a lovely surprise to see it finished when we took her home last week. It will look great when the plants have had time to grow and fill out the spaces.
In our garden the azaleas out the front have put on a wonderful display this year, from sporadic white flowers a little while agoto a stunning sea of whitethe Silver Birch is in full leafthe roses are bursting with shiny new leaves and loads of budsthe genista is a blaze of yellowthe hyacinths have been a pictureand the various daisies around the garden lift my spirits every time I see them Carole from class gave me a little cutting a few weeks ago which I planted out and it’s already flowering; they look like impossibly perfect yellow circles, don’t they?and while I didn’t grow them, these store bought iris made me happy tooOn the sewing front I’m thoroughly enjoying my “Taking Liberties” and am well past the halfway mark of the first row with the second row cut and ready to stitch.Loving // Stitching my “Taking Liberties” – it’s got me!
Eating // There’s roast pork in the oven as I write this and I can smell it all the way down the hall. Salads are starting to make a come back too with this warmer weather
Drinking // Sparkling mineral water cold from the fridge
Feeling // A little discombobulated when it’s still light outside and the 7.00pm news is on the tv. So nice to have the added daylight.
Making // As well as hand sewing, I’m still knitting and there’s a little crochet present on the hook too.
Thinking // Of all the things I should be doing before year’s end!
Dreaming // Of some “me” time in January, just to sew……need to employ a housekeeper for a few weeks while I’m doing it!
