Wilbur was so proud introducing Hector and telling them that he wasn't big enough to play just yet. What a joy!
The garden planning has begun the seed boxes are out and we are planning to use as many of the free packets that we can without having to buy too much this year. We have a subscription for Grow Your Own, that comes with free seeds every month. We call it the gift that keeps on giving... We are a little late planting up some of the early varieties, but that is life!
I have finished the throw for one of the chairs in the craft room, just one more to go. Drum roll please...for the big reveal...
I am rather pleased with the finish, a beautiful combination of colours.
A little something to pop on your knees on a chilly day.
I have also made a great start to the labelling for the craft room, painting shapes with blackboard paint which has a really strong toxic smell and gets at the back of your throat. Hindsight is wonderful, but I really should have done it outside.
I got lucky with chalk pens in The Works for £2, a real bargain and a system in place to make it easier for others to find what they are looking for.
Once again drum roll please for the big reveal...
Now back to the gardening plans...Have you started in your garden?
See you soon.
What a lovely photo of the grandchildren together, Wilbur looks very proud. The blackboard shapes are a great idea for labelling things, it looks smashing.ReplyDelete

No, no garden yet. Much too early. We are not able to get started until the end of May. I do have some herbs in a can to start on a windowsill, which I will get to soon.
Oh those babes!!!!ReplyDelete
And your throw!!!!
It is so beautiful....so cozy.
I can't thread a needle...
I am so in awe of your talents.
Have a wonderful week, my friend!
What a beautiful photo, you should enlarge it and frame it. Love the colors of the throw.ReplyDelete
You're just too organized, I just have to rummage when I want something.
I am longing for new baby cuddles. Just about a month to go.ReplyDelete
You have such a wonderful eye for colour. Your throw is beautiful and I am loving the chalkboard labels-x-
Your grandkids all together make a sweet photo. Beautiful throw for your craftroom, such a nice pattern & colours. I like your chalkboard labels too - great that you can change them as the box contents changes. Looks like you had a really special time crafting with the grandkids in the last post too ;)ReplyDelete
Oh how great is that?ReplyDelete
Thanks for the great ideas !!!!
Fab photo of the grandchildren, a pity Bertie wasn't there as well. You never cease to amaze me with your organisational skills. I haven't thought about the garden yet, I always leave it too late.ReplyDelete

Precious little ones - melts your heart! Very sweet little blanket you have made and the labels are so clever. I have been buying seeds and planting a few shrubs and bare-root plants in the garden already, although the weather has turned bad, so it is back to sewing. Hope you have a lovely week. xx KarenReplyDelete
