March: In Pictures

marchThis year is flying by, and here we are at the end of March and I am only just getting round to posting the first of my Month in Pictures, a new year resolution I was determined to keep!

This collage represents a few key points in the month; the publication of Handmade magazine, featuring my crochet stool cover, the return of the daffodils and some teeny tiny Easter eggs. You’ll also hints of a work in progress, more of him later. The greenhouse is beginning to fill up with little seedlings and we’re starting to enjoy mugs of tea outside. Finally, the teen is home for Easter, so there is baking. I think you’ll agree it’s been a busy month. Our has been filled with love, hope and good humour, let’s hope the same can be said of April.

  1. I just buzzed though a number of your post. The projects you have made look so awesome. I am loving the bag made from scrap yarn and the flower pin cushion may have to be my next project.

    Thank you all, maybe I should have added “mugs of tea while snuggled up in wooly hats and ski jackets to protect against bracing winds …” but truthfully we have had a few very mild days and took full advantage!

#spelt #permaculture #bakingandmaking Thanks to @textilegarden I found the perfect gift for my best friend at Woolfest, like a tiny acorn our friendship has grown into big oak tree. Years of nurture has given us strong roots. Happy 40 years of frienship Ali xxx I really think poppy seed heads are far more beautiful than the poppies! A break from Woolfest photos today. 
#girlgardener #seeds #gardenersofig #mygardenrightnow Years ago, a guy I followed on twitter wrote an ebook, I reviewed it on my blog and  it became my "go to" Friday night curry book. Now he has a "real life" cook book, published. Congratulations Dan @thecurryguy it's a triumph, sorry I can't be at the New Bookshop to have my copy signed xxxx
