Ice White & a Zap of Colour

Little Bun picked a few handfuls of snowdrops in her Grandparents garden yesterday. A handful for her and a handful for me.

There's been a spot of loft clearing going on over there too. I've been given a gorgeous sparkly blue brooch.

A very delightful tiny jug.


An old Quality Street tin and a couple of my beloved childhood reading books.


There were also some black and white pictures I'd never seen before. My parents and some of the family out on one of my dad's motor launches, cruising the Broads in a stylish 60's manner. I'm sure there's loads more treasure to be unearthed yet.

Now I got a bit distracted on my way to the bank this morning. Just a spot of banking, food shopping and home to work I thought. Once I'd spotted the colour explosion of these fabulous fabrics I got a bit waylaid. Then there was the yarn - well I was helpless and couldn't say no.



Better get on with making them all into something soon before I can justify anymore temptations to myself.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment. I read all of them and really appreciate you taking the time to say hello.
I always try to get back and reply, but sometimes this may take a bit longer as pets and children always seem to need attention around here.
