Let's hear it for springtime...

dry weather..sunshine...verrry cold but you can't ignore the signs...buds swelling, birds twittering, lighter nights...it can only be one thing...the end is in sight!! Now don't get me wrong, I love a good "snuggling in and being cosy winter" in it's place...but by about now I'm beginning to get a bit twitchy and tired of wearing 14 layers and trying to find my warmest hat and gloves...and that's just in the house! 

Obviously one musn't get too carried away and start casting clouts...but a little hope goes a long way...






















and then it's been time for the willow harvest...at half term we didn't see husband of patience as he was happily outside from dawn to dusk cutting willow and planting around 2000 cuttings! can you see the different colours white,gold,purple...they looked so lovely all together in the sunshine...







and indoors I have the most beautiful cyclamen...a gift from a dear friend...so very pretty...







and down in the studio in my textile heaven...I am experimenting with all my little left overs which I store in cheerful colour coded bags...so many of them as I hate to throw away a single scrap...a little needle felting and then some stitching...





rather liking the gorgeous rich colours and it's "such fun" to play with...and one day soon it will be a hat...although it is somewhat of an ongoing project which I will fit in around all the other things I am doing...when I'm not on the computer on facebook or Etsy...or dare I say it...Pinterest onto which I finally been lured...oo but it is ra-ther lovely...

have a wonderful sunny weekend...xx
