Where does the time go? April is here, the garden is waking up, daffodils nearly finished and the tulips are in full bud waiting to take over the colourful display. New leaves showing on the trees and shrubs - it's a pleasure to see such new growth.
The birds are getting very frisky and and shouting very loudly about it all - I was about 15 minutes late putting their food out this morning, my goodness, what a racket! I thought for a moment that they were indoors they were so noisy!!

My sewing room is coming on - I decided to empty the last cupboard on Friday and move my 2 floss cabinets inside, frames, Q-Snaps and roller bars on the next shelf up, with kits and small storage boxes above that. The large cupboard underneath now has my larger storage boxes, books and files full of patterns all stacked neat and tidy. I have found quite a few kits in the various places, some I don't even remember buying they have been around so long. I rarely do kits now, I prefer charts or patterns from magazines, books or from the designer's web sites and then 'kit' them up myself. But these 'oldies' are really lovely and definitely have to stay.
I found a UFO of a Red Squirrel hidden away and sadly forgotten - it's now been elevated to WIP status and added to my rotation list.
I said last week that I was going to work on my Cottage Garden in Spring - well, I changed my mind and I worked on another WIP, Buddha by Lanarte.
Here it is and where I've got to so far.
This week I'm working on Victorian Christmas Eve by Sandy Littlejohns and Debbie Lester.
My small project is 'April' by Lesley Teare from the Ultimate Cross Stitch Flowers Book.
It's been a long post today, thank you if you are still with me!
Do pop by and say hello, I shall go blog hopping now to see all your lovely work.
