Once again I’m in a mad panic, busy sewing and crocheting, trying to get things finished and pack everything all ready to take to the Post Winter Fair at Clutter City which is on Saturday 15th March.
In between making brooch samples for the best commission ever, I’m playing around with some new colours and ideas in my work. (Basically getting very distracted by finding a new bag of old tapestry wool that was hidden at the back of a cupboard)
Gazing out of my window there are signs of Spring everywhere, and looking down at my work table I can see what I’m sewing has been influenced by what is happening out in the garden, and in the lane behind our home. Walking to the local shops I’m seeing tiny clusters of the most beautiful and intense smelling violets.
Tiny blossoms, little posies, fat bees……scents and sounds of Spring make me feel like a sleeping bulb, waking and stretching, responding to the warmer weather. This is what I try to imagine when I am doing my morning exercises…. sewing and crocheting all day means I have exceptionally toned and trim fingers… sadly it cannot be said of the rest of me!!
In just over a week it is the first official day of Spring, though it seems to arrived truly early here this year, and at the end of March in the UK it’s Mother’s Day, to celebrate these events I’m doing my second blog giveaway.
