Things that lift my spirits
Though I'd share a few things that make me smile:
Some forced bulbs with curly willow, now leafing out.
Baby black magic geraniums grown from seed
My Mum knitted these lovely wool socks and sent them to me yesterday. Don't the colors make you feel good?
Clousseau senses just when holding a paw is what is needed.
Lots of cards show how many friends are thinking of David
I've had a chance to try some stumpwork embroidery. I love the 3D effect. Here is my first piece.
It combines ribbon work and silk embroidery (delphiniums and agapanthus)
The hollyhocks are a type of buttonhole stitch but the most fun to do were the ladybugs.
And, of course, thinking about IU6 brings a very big smile.
