The weather has taking a turn for the better here. In our street there has been a frenzy of activity after the wet summer - hedge clippers, lawn mowers and paintbrushes have all been brandished. I took an hour to plant up my spring bulbs in the garden (fritillaries and bluebells) and planted some for the house as well............. I sat in the garden today in a sunny spot working on my latest pattern - a snowman tea cosy!!
