Spring Embroidery

I love this beautifully embroidered garden picture from The Flower Garden as seen on Folksy. I love the stitching details and lovely use of buttons and fabrics, and the lilacs and greens are very Spring like. I think I am now ready to ditch December and this cold weather and dive head first into the new year and new beginnings.

Happy New Year to All x

Snow Day

Today has been another snow day. It is always good to have an unexpected day off, and two is even better! However the flat is freezing and i've already doubled up on cardigans and socks, and drunk numerous amounts of hot tea. This morning we had fun throwing snow around and uncovering the car from its snowy camouflage and this afternoon I have been able to do some therapeutic decluttering and sorting. I also thought I would share this with you, which I came across while sorting through some bits at my parents house (who are due to move house in next few days). I did this when I was six years old, but I don't know what the foxes had done to upset me!
