Luckily it has all melted and gone, but the temperatures are set to remain chillingly low, so the seeds are staying in their packets for the moment.
I had a lovely surprise on Monday – Karen K was revealed as my partner for the SBEBB Spring Quaker exchange. She stitched me this gorgeous pinkeep by Milady’s Needle. The weather may not be particularly Spring-like, but this pinkeep surely is!

She also included lots of wonderful extras for me, which I can’t wait to use. Oh, and did I mention that she handmade that lovely little card?!
As well, I heard from Becky that she had received the parcel I posted over to her for our personal Spring-themed exchange. It was a real challenge stitching something for Becky – I was quite anxious about my finishing – but she has reassured me that she loves the stitched pieces, and will get use out of the extras I sent too. There are more (and better!) photos over on her blog.

Oh, and I have to report that my horse was pulled up with just a few fences to go in the Grand National on Saturday (not that he was in contention) so no contribution to my retirement fund from my winnings LOL!
