The garden is putting on a lovely show for spring!! lots of blosssom and plants emerging !!!! very exciting!
Take time to find something beautiful in each day!
"And Spring arose on the garden fair;
Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;
And each flower and herb on Earth's dark breast
rose from the dreams of its wintry rest."
-Percy Bysshe Shelley
Lots of parcels and cards arrive daily in my mailbox....
exquisite embroidery on a little sachet.....
a beautiful hand painted brooch
and so many other touching gifts, cards and emails.
I put the finishing touches to the mirror frame I had been painting, after a coat of pale colour I used a dry paint brush dipped in white paint to skim over the flowers ...and I really like how it has turned out.
Today I made up a wiggly woggly cushion for the house at the sea, the stitching is thrifted and in a frame...and it was round....so I ad libbed the stitches and colours and squared it off!! then using 'stash' fabric made the cushion...our house is at the sea is a bit wibbly wobbly and so is the couch the cushion will live on...so it will be very much at home!
