Spring at last

Oh what a long winter this has been, although we've had no snow, or at least very little of it, the days have passed really slowly. Anyone who knows me knows that come winter I just want to hibernate until Spring comes round again.

It's not all been doom and gloom, I have been stitching but a couple of pieces were for presents and I forgot to take photos.

I've been plodding on with Celtic Noel and am pleased that it at last seems to be growing.

I also finished Peace on Earth by LHN, just need to do the finishing now but the finishing pile keeps getting bigger, I really must get my finger out.

Another little stitch from Lesley Teare, one of her floral heart designs.
This was a free design and I think it's still there on her page if you want to look.

Another big event was my eldest daughter's wedding which was at the beginning of March.
I didn't manage to take many photos as by the time I'd got my camera out the moment had passed. Hopefully the photographer will have taken some good ones, she certainly took enough. It was a really cold day but at least the sun shone and we were able to have photos taken outside.

They were married in a lovely little church in Stoak, Cheshire which wasn't very big but thankfully it was lovely and warm.

This is her youngest Alex who didn't know what to make of it all but he sat through the ceremony and stood up when we all did and tried to sing from the hymn sheet.

The topper from the wedding cake showing their little family. Sharon had had one on order from a lady on Facebook who let her down and took her money a couple of weeks before the wedding. Thankfully another lady stepped in and managed to do this one for her.

And for anyone who watches Coronation Street this lady was the harpist who was at the wedding Fayre that Tracy and Carla went to. She played all through the meal.

It's a beautiful afternoon and the lawn has just got its second cut of the year and a few seeds have been planted. Doesn't the sunshine lift the spirits.

I'll try not to leave it so long next time,

love and hugs,
