A Glorious Day

Well, spring has truly arrived where I live - the past five days or so have been absolutely stunning - not a cloud in the sky and on Thursday it reached 24 C. Today I have made the most of it and after having lunch out in town with my niece Zoe and Mum, I spent several hours outside in the garden, pulling weeds, sweeping and doing a general tidy up. I have one more section of our back yard to do but might need Glenn's help with that as there's branches that I'd like to cut back that will need Glenn's muscles, lol.

I thought I'd share some pics of our house and gardens today since its been so nice outside. There's not alot of colour in the garden at the moment, only a couple of daffodils :) I'm got all my pots waiting to be potted up for spring and summer, usually petunias and lobelia, but I think I'll leave them until after my holiday (incase "someone" forgets to water them!!))

Last night I finished an ornament Lizzie Kate's Deck the Halls, and then made a start on a wedding ring pillow, Beaded hearts by JBW Designs, which is another gift for our friends. Its white on white - white beads and threads on white fabric so a little boring to stitch but is going to look lovely when finished.

Thanks too, for the comments about the wedding sampler - you are all wonderful!

The outside is loking good Katrina, and how wonderufl to hit 24 degrees, surely Spring cannot be that far away. Bring it on here, we have had wind, and overcast kinda days.

And I canot wait to check the mail box tomorrow, perhaps my Leanne's Quilt will be there.

Just stumbled upon your blog, I'm also doing Leanne's quilt, I'm hoping to start block two this weekend! Looks like a new house in the works or a remodel?

Goodluck with it!
