It's been a while

Aren't the weeks flying by, I can't believe that it's April tomorrow and such a while since I last blogged. I have still been stitching and knitting but at the moment a lot of my time has been taken up with preparations for my youngest daughters wedding, only five weeks to go and I've still not found any shoes or a bag to match my outfit. I'm also trying to make a jacket to go with my dress just in case the weather isn't as warm as we'd like it to be. I just hope that it's not anything like last night or today, I hardly got a wink of sleep the wind was howling so much and the rain was heavy too. Think it might be time for a nanny nap this afternoon.

We've also spent quite a bit of time out in the garden when it's been fine, only one flower border left to do and then the veg plot has to be seen to. The green house is full of little seedlings ready to be potted on, it's just finding the time to fit everything in. The old couple next door cut all of their trees down last year which made our garden very open so we bought a few things to fill in against the fence until we decide whether to higher the fence or just grow taller plants.

I am still plodding on with Beatrix Potter, I'm determined to finish it soon. There's not a lot left to do.

This is what I started over a month ago but had to put it away as I had so much else to do but I got it out again at the weekend and didn't want to put it down. I think I'm enjoying the pretty colours after sewing so much red.

And finally a picture of my flowers and tea pot that I had for Mothers Day.

I have been so good and not broken in to it yet but I'm afraid its days are numbered as it is getting very tempting to just have a nibble.

Well that's about it for now, I have done more on my Celtic Noel and another two tea pots are stitched on the shelf but they can wait for another day. It is absolutely throwing it down outside, I hope that it picks up for Easter. My two grandchildren Lily and Callum have gone to Scarborough this week with their other Grandma and Granddad, I so hope that they've got better weather there.

Bye for now, take care

Beatrix Potter is looking good but like you I would feel the need for a change of colour. That chocolate teapot wouldn't have lasted as long with me!

Beatrix is looking wonderful, perhaps you could join us at the weekend UFO at NH and get it completed?
Spring is such a busy time for gardeners.
I'd have eaten the chocolate teapot.
Blessings to you this Eastertime x

A chocolate teapot! How useful LOL

Your stitching is looking great, you have a good excuse for neglecting it somewhat. Weddings are always a lot of work to plan and organise.
