Spring has sprung!
There are definite signs of spring... at last.. I don’t think I have ever known such a long and very cold winter. For the first time ever I have worn jumpers and cardigans at home and my short-sleeved jumpers never saw the light of day until today! The sun has shone for several days although we have risen to a white frosted lawn for this last week and that chill was still in the air early morning.
Not that Nell noticed she raced out each morning chasing these little fellas! Although one could be a girl as we have watched high jinks in the trees with one chasing the other, so may be little ones around soon.
Here she is on squirrel watch! She is now one year old as her birthday was March 3rd. She still needs lots of training but compared to how she was even a few months ago, she has improved. Hasn't she got big, she weighs 19 pounds and quite a lump to carry. We are off to look at kennels next week as she will have to go into one for when we are away for my son's wedding end of April.
I now have the dizzy delemma as to what to stitch next??? Such an array of charts and kits to chose from. I think I will start that Winter design by Rose Swalwel and that little Flower one that Gaynor sent..
We have been extremely busy and have decorated our conservatory. This is quite a feat for us as we are not DIY people and so we are amazed and delighted as to how good it looks! Its a pale lemon and all the cracks from where it was new and settling have been expertly filled and sanded by me and DH has painted. So we are well pleased. Perhaps we might be tempted to do the hall stairs and landing although that does seem rather a lot for us!!! LOL
Hope everyone else is feeling the full of zest and the joys of spring.
Happy Stitching all
