We had a week of cold temperatures and even a sprinkle of snow , which really put a hold on spring. But I hope that's over now and as it is the Spring Equinox (or Ostara) on the 20th of March I really hope the winter weather will disappear and make room for spring to really start.
My little backyard garden is still making some more flowers pop out of the earth, despite the freezing weather that last week. It only started to improve yesterday , but by the looks of the weather forecast we will have a week of rainy and very windy weather ahead of us.
I love these little beauties popping up everywhere :)
The daffodils are still biding their time to open up , but they only get sun in the afternoon, standing in a shady corner.
I completed a small floral cross stitch picture hoop and really like the colours and design. Instead of french knots I stitched lots of little blue beads onto the design.
This time off work not only gave me the time to do my spring cleaning, but.....
....I had the time to make lots of new download parts. What do you think? By the time these are all published it might be time to get to the summer themes?
Also, I would like to dedicate these parts of the kit to Edna , a dear fellow scrap designer , who passed away last month. We used to have so much fun in the past working and chatting together , and she loved spring and summer when she could venture out with her camera and capture nature at its best. You will be missed, RIP dear soul 💓
Anyway, it's time for the first part of Spring Awakening today.
I start with the flowers which are already blooming here in England, at the East coast.
Snowdrops and crocuses.
And that's it for today.
Enjoy and until next time
