This morning I went back to the park to see the daffodils which have now replaced the crocuses under the trees : ) I do love spring.

Still spring cleaning!

Work life took an unexpectedly busy turn, so I am still spring cleaning! The good news is that builders next door have completed their work, so I am now enjoying being at home again : ) 'Looking forward to getting back to some serious painting, too.

Spring Cleaning

Spring has arrived in London, as evidenced by my photo of beautiful crocuses under the trees in Waterlow Park : ) I love spring, and how days are growing lighter, and plants are waking up, plus the intermittent sunshine. The latter has prompted me to embark on much-needed spring cleaning! The plus side of cleaning and tidying is finding again things I'd mislaid like Ladysnail's delightful green lion postcard print : )

I'm still learning how to use Painter. This is a piece of work in progress that I am having fun with at the moment. Today, I discovered how to use the text palette!

Introducing Crufc : )

This little chap is a present I've knitted for someone very special. This humpty's name is Crufc because he is sporting the colours of a particular rugby club ; ) Since I last posted photos of humpties, I have been working out how to knit them with fewer seams to sew up afterwards, and have at last come up with a good method for making the legs!
