Hello everybody, this is a picture of a miniature embroidery I have just finished, I am going to use it on some crazy patchwork, it was lovely to do, I enjoyed it so much I have sent for two more, I think the Hollyhocks are my favourite.
Well what a week it has been, there is so much awful news, the weather still seems to be crazy, I feel so sorry for all the people in Queensland it must have been so frightening when the cyclone hit, they are really having a bad time. Then there is the snow in America that looks pretty awful too, we have gales at the moment here in England, I think Scotland have had the worst of them but it is still very very windy here. I am glad we have got into February, there are some small signs of spring breaking through, there are catkins in the hedgerows and snowdrops appearing everywhere and I noticed that the spring bulbs are beginning to sprout in my garden.
It is my son Andrews birthday next week so I have been busy birthday shopping, Kathleen and I went out to lunch yesterday, it was a lovely sunny day. Lets hope that the weather will take a turn for the better now, enough is enough.
