Sunshine at last!

The sun is shining for the first time for a while and it's really warm outside, so I took the chance to take a photo of my skinny stocking. A little further along. (Spot the cat paw next to it - Lulu had to come and see what I was doing!)


The bad weather and a few work issues, which I won't go into but let's just say there is one person I have to deal with who is very abrasive and I would gladly never ever speak to or deal with again (and no it's not Martin!), mean I've been a bit fed up recently. So of course I had a new start :) Here's Mimi's Tape Measure from Olde Colonial Designs. A really cute little piece.


And here are some of the first flowers of the year. I absolutely love hellebores. There are two plants here, transplanted from my father-in-law's garden, and it's the first year they've really flowered. Hopefully I'll get some seedlings from them that I can grow on.

  2. Love the progress on your stocking! I'm curious to see your progress on the tape measure as well. A tape measure finish sounds interesting.

  8. Wonderful progress on your stocking. Each and every time I see it, I want to start mine. Good progress on your other start too. I love hellebores too. Mine are coming out, but with all the flowers here, spring came too early and while the flowers are out, the plants themselves are very short.

  12. Your stocking is looking beautiful. Sorry about the work issue. My DH works with many people like that and it can really get him upset on some days.
