We know that the weather is getting so much warmer when I’m happy to sit outside with a cup of coffee and a quilty magazine enjoying the morning sunshine. In my part of paradise it is Spring and the time has come to alter the clocks for Daylight Saving. (I’m starting to think that the time is almost here to put my winter clothes away, and start wearing something lighter. But then we have a few more cold days and I change my mind again). Muffy came outside too, and I’m sure that she felt much better with the sunshine warming her poor old bones. At 19 years old, she is getting rather stiff and no doubt sore too, and likes nothing better that being close to her people, preferably sitting on a lap.
The air was filled with the sweet scent of yellow boronia, which has just burst into flower. Such a lovely smell, and I’ve picked a few sprigs to bring inside.
While enjoying the sunshine, I’ve also been doing a little “big stitch” quilting with Perle No 5 thread on the corner of my new stitching bag. I’m getting there slowly. The trouble is that I have several hand stitching projects on the go at the same time. So I always have to decide which one will I work on. No wonder I’m so slow!
