I have quite a few projects waiting to be stitched, but first I need to finish two of these flowers, so that will be this week's little project.
We have had the most glorious weekend here in the North of England with temperatures around 20C. Yesterday I managed to get some bulbs into the ground, but still have a fair few to do. It is a job I really love doing, maybe it's the being part of a little piece of magic that makes it such fun.
This weekend's weather has been a pleasant surprise after quite a cold and wintery week here where I have lit fires and gotten into my winter groove of making soup again. I used this Tuscan bean Soup recipe, but used kale instead of cabbage and missed out the tomatoes and the result was very scrummy. I made this last year and it is one of those soups that you want to make again and again, so there will be more very soon.
Before I go, I might as well share some of my happies this week. I am not the world biggest Ikea fan, but it has its place, and this week me and the doh paid a visit without kids (my golly I might just start liking the place, it felt relaxed and hassle free for once!) to purchase a new sewing desk for me. Below a pic of Es helping me to assemble it. It was so very exciting for me as I have been after a 'proper' little work space for so long and yes my dearies it has finally happened. I promise to share the transformation with you very soon, even if it is only as simple as a desk, but hey ho, it takes very little to get this girl excited!
Gorgeous Sunflowers purchased for me by the kids. They look so beautiful in our kitchen.
Hope you have all enjoyed a good weekend. I am so looking forward to seeing all your stitching. Hopefully this little blog will resume some level of 'normality' again at some point in the near future, but I promise to be back this week with a fab recipe for a chocolate cake. For now, I have the dilemma of 'Downton Abbey' over X Factor, well I know what's going to win hands down. Just goes to show what exciting life I lead ;-).
Wishing you all a very enjoyable week.
