Don't you just love it when the sun shines, the skies are blue and it actually feels warm? We've had some lovely spring weather here in the UK; yes even up here in the frozen north in Scotland! I've been busy with spring planting up at the gardening club and my seedlings are sprouting all over the place - it will be another month or so before I am able to plant them out but I am hoping to have a nice array of flowers for the summer, including sweet peas which are one of my favourites. I've also seeded some cherry tomatoes this year and have got some more onions to put in but that will have to wait because ....
I am going on holiday!!! Boss's orders, I need a break apparently so this coming Thursday I am jumping on the train down to sunny South Yorkshire to spend some time at the Mouse House and we are having an overnight visit to Gillie at her new pad too which we are all looking forward to. Its going to be lovely to see all of the girls, and its just a shame that Val can't join us this time around .... but maybe next time?
I have been stitching, albeit slowly and absolutely not as much as I would have liked. I got absolutely nothing done on my Crazy 15 project last week which is "Free Spirits" my horses project, so I decided to hang onto it for this week too and I actually managed to get needle meeting fabric. There isn't an awful lot to show for my very poor endeavours but needless (gettit???) to say I will have loads to show for my time when I next blog because that dreaded wet noodle is going to be hanging right over my head and I won't get away with just a couple of stitches!
I am taking my crocus cushion project with me and perhaps another project (although I have no idea which one yet) so I hope to have a good report for you next time. I am going to squeeze in a few stitches on the Christmas Wreath tonight and tomorrow inbetween working, ironing and packing.
Short and sweet this time - got to take the laundry out of the machine and then settle down with a cuppa and my needle to watch Murdoch Mysteries.
Oh and I almost forgot to add ~ I won a PIF on Mouse's blog so I have to offer the same on mine. The rule is that I have to stitch something for someone in the next year, so ... if you are interested in having someone stitched by little old moi please leave me a comment and I will pick out a name when I get back from my travels.
Hope you are having good weather wherever in the world you are.
Until next time - thanks as always for reading and commenting.
Love and hugs,
