Spring is Starting to Spring

Spring is definitely starting to spring here on our hill and a few of the little flowers are starting to take a peep at the world

I went for a wander around our local market this morning and I just love the view I have on the way there, I am so lucky to live in such a beautiful rural area. It may be a 16 mile round trip to the nearest town but I wouldn't want to live anywhere else, I just don't think that I could live in a town.

On returning I decided to have yet another piece of yesterdays baking, yes the Almond Tart! and lovely it was.

I am already planning my next project when the hexagon throw is finished, and I thought that I would try another of Attic24's blankets. I have received my Style Craft yarn and it will be the first time that I have tried to crochet in acrylic yarn but her stripy granny blanket looks so so gorgeous.

I have just completed a small ripple cushion, I wasn't sure what to do about backing it, but found the solution with a plain cushion I found in the sales and I stitched it onto the front. I think that the results are pretty good!

I am also part way through a tapestry cushion cover I found the pattern in a Cath Kidston book that I had last year I am nearly finished but have found that with only a few stitches left to do I have run out of wool and will have to order another skein to finish!

I love Cath Kidston and really enjoy doing her tapestry, I did this cushion last year and I think it looks just stunning!!

As you can probably tell I do tend to flit from one project to another, I am always thinking what to do next even before I have finished what I am doing.
