Yes, winter is finally over. Spring has sprung……
Doesn’t it just look so warm.
OK! Who am I kidding? It was minus 6.5 degrees C and the biggest frost. The second coldest morning this year and the frost was accentuated by the fact that we had a shower of rain yesterday evening.
However, it is now a glorious blue day and should get up to about 14 degrees.
Yesterday when I arrived home from doing the groceries after work (don’t I have just the most riveting social life on a Friday night), there was a squishy parcel waiting for me.
I was strong and waited till after all the groceries were away and we’d had tea before opening it.
Inside were these lovelies.
You see, Lea and her hubby have just returned from participating in ***AND WINNING*** the bash for the Starlight Foundation. Before she went she had a little guessing competition to see how many sewing notions were in a jar. There were 152 and I guessed 153. This is the prize. Just lovely. The zippy pouch will be very useful for small projects and the colours are divine. Thanks Lea.
Also, yesterday it dawned on me that it was the end of the month and once again I had no finish to share. Can’t have that, so whipped up another bib for the gift stash.
I feel a bit of a fraud for OPAM by just doing a little something, but I’m determined to have no months without a finish of some description.
I’m off to my little stitching group this afternoon, so will get some more done on the “Stitching” block of SKOW. On the down hill run now.
