Happy Spring!

First day of spring Down Under, but my patio has started to bloom way ahead of the season…

Bright red Pig Face

gorgeous spring patio flowers – can’t remember name

Assorted Geraniums


On the stitching front, I do have a few feeble efforts to share. First, a small hanging ornament to cheer up my space at work…

This weekend I’m working feverishly on completing assignments that were due yesterday 31 August, so not much hope of stitching, but I remain optimistic.

Happy Stitching 😉
