All at once I saw a host, a crowd of golden daffodils:
Hello all of you out there in the land of blogging, it is a beautiful day here in the South of England ,birds are singing , and you get the feeling spring has sprung.
Today we visited the garden centre to get a couple of new roses (Anniversary present from the MIL). Whilst there I couldn't resist grabbing the camera, the smell of these was divine and I brought a couple home ,just for the smell.
This is the time of year for new beginings and that is what I will be showing you -my new beginnings this week.
This is my new start last Monday with Sally and Colleen, thankyou all by the way for your comments on The Journey , I have it wrapped up awaiting what to do with it. Perhaps I will just bring it out when we have a guest for their room. Anyway this is Lucky the Shepherds bush kit I received for my birthday from Colleen, I just could not face a really large one, he/she is just so sweet and well sheepie. Thankyou Sally and Colleen for allowing me to continue my Journey with Lucky and you.
The next one was my TSG and Jane new start on a Wednesday night over on Needlecraft Haven ,this time I am in the kitchen with Jane. It is a quote taken from one of Janes letters to Cassandra and I am loving the colours.
I have had this kitted up for some time and it called to me from the evergrowing pile that it really needed to be next!Of course when Tanya informed us she was having a TSG sale this week ,I REALLY should not admit to this but just couldn't resist getting these on pdf. I can blame the friendship one on one of the Ladies on NH SAL as she is stitching it-also it has a white furry creature on it lol.
The next one , oh I know you are all shouting 3 new starts this week! but I HAD to stitch this one as it spoke to me as soon as I saw it in my new Stitchers Journey book from Blackbird Designs. Lots of lovely designs in it but thought one start from there would be enough!!
It is being stitched over one on Sassys Fabric and I am adapting the 'special stitches'. I did start it as the chart but decided it would be too big so hope it will still do the design justice.
So there are my 3 new starts - cannot count either as there is another sitting beside me and I cannot say what it is or show you as it is a giftie .
This week Martin and I celebrated our 44th wedding anniversary, just to say the romance is still there .
On that day it was also Red Nose Day for Comic Relief and to do something funny for money Caitlin our grandaughter decided she would sit in the sea. BRRRRR it was a foul day on Friday and quite cold but the sea was just a tad cold. Just to prove she did it-
Did that make you feel chilly-I think she did too. She raised £70 so she did well.
Martin also had a finish this week he made me a kite for my window.
My thanks go to all of you who continue to leave me comments , I must learn how to send you an answer via your comment post. Life is a steep learning curve for me these days lol.
Well I am not writing reams this time, I do love reading what you think of my little offerings though and I have one more to go to get to the century in my followers.
So I shall leave you with another springy pic and wish you a happy and sunny stitchy week.
Hugs n stuff
