Today it has not rained: but despite the sun shining I have been sewing away in my studio. I am so enjoying my latest project: I am on the last lap and I think it will look just lovely!:
I am also getting on well with my latest cross-stitch (Needle & Thread - Sampler of the Season: Spring) - I started this in Nottingham last week whilst visiting my Mum: so I am pleased with the progress, it is going to be about 15 ins square:
Mum was fine, no worse (or better) than on my last visit, which is fine - she struggles to walk but uses her zimmer frame. At 92 years old "every day is a blessing - every meal a feast" - especially when I am there to cook for her! We had a lovely few days together.
I have finished another baby quilt for one of Fran's friends - she liked the previous one so much - which is great - that she asked me to do one for a little girl born last November: hence I chose Flower Fairies!:
After days of cold wet windy weather, today has been dry and this evening the sun made an appearance. There was even the tourist boat on the River - it goes from Plymouth to Calstock where it stops by the pub: we can often hear everyone singing on their way back home, all very jolly:
I have seen some wonderful photos that my blogging friends have put up recently of the wild life in their gardens: we love feeding the birds here, there are so many wonderful species that visit us - but at dusk, and sometimes really early in the morning the bird-feeder has an unexpected visitor:
I will blog again when I return from Surrey - I hope you all have a good week.
