I’ve been doing lots of different things lately, except for blogging… So, finally an update on what’s going on! I’ve been designing, stitching up samplers, and then there have been trips to London and the garden centre of course! With spring in full spring (yea…), the garden is starting to look ever so lovely. I bought some Granny’s Bonnets and Lupins, and finally came round to filling up some baskets with flowers – something I’ve been meaning to do for ages, but just could’t get myself to. As we’ve had such amazing weather, there was really no excuse but to get my hands dirty and do some potting.
Much to our delight, a blackbird family has taken up residence in our garden. Occasionally we are treated to some amazing bird song, and as a reward we have started putting out apples. They seem to be very popular, as within a day they seem to disappear.
Inspired by these beautiful birds and the pots with flowers I decided to make a small sampler called Love Birds, which is now available for purchase in my Etsy Shop.
Below some photos of our recent trip to London, my visit to the Boro exhibition at the Somerset House, some pictures of the garden, and me starting to stitch up my latest pattern. I will be posting some pictures soon of the finished sampler!
