Spring is definately in the air at last. Sunlight is pouring in the windows most mornings. Lots of shoots are appearing at last. Green is so much nicer than brown. I'm always impatient for the first daffodils of the year, so I bought a bunch of my own sunshine this morning and plonked it in a vase.
The rest of the morning I spent stitching a birthday present for a friend of Eldest Bun. A pencil roll, with her name stamped on slowly took shape. I never use a pattern, so I was relieved when it all worked out ok.
The most important part was that it had to be pink. I found a piece of Amy Butler hiding at the back of the stash and some spotty curtain remnants. I'm pretty pleased with how they've worked out together. Hope she likes it.
Stuff like food shopping took up the rest of my day off. I made sure I shopped near the wool shop to make it more interesting. I've been waiting for pay day so I could get these new Rowan Cotton jewel shades to add to the ever so slowly scarf I'm making. Roll on Friday when I can play with them and then show you my other treat.
I might even let you into a secret then of something I've done after twenty years of wanting to.
