March round-up

Happy Easter to you all as today is the 1st of April and Easter Sunday. For me March seemed to fly by and it's that time again where I share with you some of the things I have been up to. This month I treated myself to a cross-stitch kit and its a   sewing sampler  which I plan on hanging in my sewing room when its finished.

I have not done any cross stitch for over 20 years and my eyesight has deteriorated significantly since then! But I get round this by using this wonderful magnifier which clips onto my table. Also I only work on this for short periods of time and when there is enough natural light. But I have been completely surprised at how addictive and enjoyable working on this cross stitch project has been.  I think a sampler really appealed to me because it is made up of lots of smaller pictures so I can finish one section at a time before moving on to the next. I look forward to sharing my progress with you.

Also this month I was really touched when my Mum gave me this wonderful old tin containing buttons. It used to belong to Mum's mum and my grandmother was a really talented seamstress so it means a lot that it has now been passed on to me. I shall really enjoy choosing buttons to use on future sewing projects.

And finally it was so nice to spot signs of spring in the garden with daffodils appearing and plants starting to grow after what seems like the longest and coldest winter we have had here in the UK for quite a while.

Thanks for stopping by and until next time.
