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!

#girlgardener #ediblegarden #naturelover #nofilter When you're enjoying a quiet mug of tea & the sound of geese becomes deafening! Seeing far more fly over the house this year (& occassionally landing in the field, calling to each other then taking off and regrouping as if they have practised for years!! Lots of red admirals in the garden today
#naturelover #redadmiral #butterfly #embracingautumn #girlgardener #wildgarden Sunday loaf. I've always baked bread -  not very successfully - but earlier this year I treated myself to a workshop with Andy, who runs the Coffee Kitchen bakery in Cockermouth. He taught us that bread making can be slow &  gentle, that bread is a living food & that inspired me to keep learning & keep experimenting. This is a 100% spelt sourdough fresh from the oven. Mr T is desperate for it to cool down so he can have a slice, thickly spread with butter! Thanks @thecoffkitchen for all your patience & advice.

Trying to restore my mojo with a walk in the forest, where it's so wet that even the squirrels look miserable! Normally I stop here to drink coffee from my flask, but it's onwards & upwards, then home for dry clothes & hot chocolate!
