What a glorious weekend of Spring sunshine and open windows and washing hanging on the line it has been. I absolutely LOVE it when I can hang my washing outside to dry and truly feel like this is my mark of Spring and Summer is on it's way. Nothing like the smell of sun kissed clean clothes. I do hope you have been shined on this weekend?
We went to Brighton yesterday to see my Sister in law before baby arrives and I eventually got round to stitching these mother of pearl teeny tiny buttons on the Pebble vest I knitted a while back.
It is the sweetest little thing, hard to believe that new born babies are so small.
Fiona and Max decided not to find out if they are having a boy or girl so I tried to accommodate for this in my colour choices. Looking at it I'm not sure anymore, is it better suited to a boy or girl? Especially with me adding this button to the top fastening?
Oh well, we will just have to wait and see, hopefully I can show you a photo of the new arrival wearing this sweet thing:0)
We visited Janie, Alice's art teacher on Saturday afternoon for a
cup of tea and cake and a potter in her beautiful English country garden. She has the greenest fingers ever, we love seeing her garden in all the seasons but Spring is always the best. All the flower photo's in this post are from her garden, she knows all the botanical names which I am ashamed to say I know very little of, but I like to listen and learn from an enthusiastic gardener.
Oh, and take photo's of ...
all the pretties
and the kitty called Tiggy
I bet Tiggy would like what I crocheted yesterday...
One of Planet Penny's wee mice (pattern found here)
I realised this morning that his (Alice has named him Morris Mouse) eyes should have been black beads instead of blue and that his little face looks a little anxious or concerned...maybe he thinks Tiggy is going to catch him after all!
Oh, and did you notice that he is rather plumptious (fat is a swear word in this house!)? Too much stuffing can do that you know ;0)
With that thought in mind, I'm going to wish you all a jolly good Easter (mind that choccy stuffing though) as I will be taking a break from my blog to go on an exciting 2 week holiday and look forward to catching up with you all when I return. I'll love and leave you with this hand stitched bunny I saw on a home made linen cushion the other day in this local shop.
How gorgeous is that?
Take care and
Blessings to you all this Easter
