It`s Spring

Hello my friends. So happy you could come for a visit. Spring is here for us. The birds are making their nests ready for their little ones. The blossoms are on the trees but we are not seeing many bees this year. Hubbys seen a few bees out the back and when I go to the letter box I see one lone bumble bee.

This is apple blossom. Every year I`m tempted to cut a piece to have inside but Hubby says no as it could be part of the crop that comes later.

How far my stitchings come on our grand-daughters `church doll sampler roll`. As I didn`t find the time to stitch a birth sampler, I decided to make this needle roll for her. She`s two at the moment so will put it on display till I feel she old enough to cherish it. It is one of Beth Twist designs of Heartstring Samplery.
Well have a busy day today so thankyou for the lovely comments I`ve been getting about my blog and welcome to my new followers. I cherish each one form the first to the latest.
Happy Stitching,


  1. Spring indeed. Finally. Love it. My fruit trees, peaches and nectarines are all in full bloom too.
    LOVE your needle roll. So beautiful.
