Today is St Patrick's Day, what better way than to start my post with an update of Irish Garden.
Another quarter iris border added, this time the top right one.
Nature Alphabet now sports L for lavender
That's 3 rows completed, it's gets prettier each week.
See you tomorrow Gillie - my SAL stitching buddy.
The bottom border was added to Candy Cane Cottage and this week will see the top border and a few snowflakes complete this one.
Hubby's asked for a new pair of socks. We bought this lovely wool at a local department store over 12 months ago. I think he's waited long enough for them to be started, don't you?
I'm trying out some new bamboo needles as well. If you knit, do you prefer metal pins or wooden ones, we were discussing this at a new craft group I joined last week.
My brothers mother-in-law will be celebrating her 80th birthday next month. She's a lovely lady, very friendly and lots of fun, so I've made her a little bunny to help celebrate her milestone birthday. No champagne bubbles this time, but a nice bouquet of lilac flowers instead.
Looking out of my kitchen window a lovely sight greeted me on Sunday. After waiting patiently my camelia is finally in flower. She's called Brigadoon and was a wedding anniversary present some years ago. Such a vivid pink and the flowers are so large. There's plenty more buds so hopefully the spring frosts will keep away and let me enjoy it for a few weeks as the buds fatten and open up.
Welcome to the new visitors, it's nice to see you stopping by.
Have a lovely week, hope the luck of the Irish stays with you all year....
p.s. This weekend is the Spring stitchers meet up, I'm really looking forward to seeing the girls again!
