Almost Spring, Knitting Finishes & New Stash

Hello friends,

this little bundle of sweet daphne greeted me on my office desk earlier in the week - one of my co-workers knows that I absolutely adore daphne so she'll keep me in supply while her daphne is flowering :) We've also got lots of daffodils up in our work garden so spring must be on it's way! 

I had day off work yesterday playing nurse to Hannah - she has a stinky cold so we had a very quiet day, just what we both needed I think!

I've nearly finished all the baby knitting for my friend, just one more pair of booties to finish and sew up.

I think the little cardigan is very cute :

A small envelope arrived recently from Broomfields, containing the latest Loose Feathers pattern by Blackbird Designs. I also got a fat quarter of fabric to suit the designs.

I've recently discovered an Iphone photo editing App called Phonto, which allows you to add text to a photo. Its free from here.  Very simple to use :)

See you soon x
