April is almost here this !

Hello again dear friends hope you all had a lovely week.

I have had a happy week this week, a cuddle with one of my sweet babies .

And my lovely friend Ann came over for the day It was so lovely to get together with another one of my stitching friends and she brought me some wonderful Easter goodies which I will show you later in my post. I am also looking forward to going over to Ann's later next month .

It has been a very mixed week weather wise ,  lots of sunshine wind and rain .

Thank you again for your lovely comments I do love to read them all and get to know you more .
I am very slow reading blog posts this week but hope to catch up this week, it has been another busy week.

Tomorrow I think I will get out all my Easter ornaments out and displayed.
I do love Easter and all the pretty colours.

I have not done too much on the stitching side but I have been working on my WIPs where I can.

So here are a few pictures for you to see what I have been up to.

A Sunny Time In The Garden

Hello again friends , are you having fun ? in the sunshine .
We have had such a lovely week here so we have been digging and working in the garden well I could hardly walk after , I must get a  bit more exercise in .
I also sat just enjoying the warm spring sunshine , watching a little robin having a bath in our water feature , the blue tits taking things in to the bird box for there nest . And I noticed we must have a very big hedgehog leaving his poo on my path , naughty hedgehog.
Last night we had the biggest red sun I have ever seen.

Thank you once again for your wonderful comments , and hello to my new followers , I hope we get to know each other soon.

I have been stitching a little but so short of time this week , trying to clear my craft room and make it
tidy again  this will be a big big job I can tell you, and I had club this week and we also had a few days out .

But I did do a exchange  I can show you now.

BEAUTIFUL SPRING.

Well hello dear friends old and new .
What a beautiful time of the year don't you just love Spring , flowers blooming , birds singing the odd butterfly and bumble bee flying around , new growth on the trees and leaves just starting to break free.
New life starting everywhere .
I have a happy heart and in a good space right now , life is good for me and a hope it is for you too.

I know it's not a good time for all but look around you at the simple things in life and how lucky we
are , like the saying count your blessings and they will out weigh your bad things.

Well this week we have had a good week busy in the garden starting packets of seeds and seeing them grow and pricking out ready for planting .

We have met up with friends been out for a few lunches and out shopping for the babies , hoping to see them next week if we are still cold free.

I have been stitching and knitting away but can't stitch quick enough .
I have so many things I want to get stitched this year.

Thank you to all my friends who take the time to leave me a comment you are the ones who make me keep up with my blog each week , I love to share a little part of my life with you  and my passion for my stitching. So thank you to all of you.

Now lets see what I have to show you this week.
                                                       Lots of WIPs this week.
