I’ve been following the RSPB Big Garden birdwatch and there has been some fabulous photographs of all sorts of birds. The last few days have brought photos of quite a few blue tits with their fluffy new feathers and their cheeky faces. Watch out insects, caterpillars, seeds and nuts.They are such happy little creatures so I thought we would have a go at knitting one. It is a little bit fiddly with lots of wool ends but hang on in there, it will be worth it as just look at him.
Time to clean the greenhouse or cold frame and get seeds planted. Aubergines, chillies and tomatoes. Beetroot, courgettes, cucumber, squash,lettuce to name but a few.
This cushion is named after the lady that gave me the wool I used. It was many, many years ago and vintage at the time, so super vintage now! I’d almost forgotten about it so it was a nice surprise when it was unearthed.
A few of you sent the words ‘sunshine’. After such a long wet winter some Spring Sunshine would be amazing. Quite fitting then that there’s a lovely Spring flower, a narcissus called Spring Sunshine.
Thank you for joining the Spring KAL. Thank you also to the knitters of the Winter KAL whom I asked to send me their favourite Spring words. They sent me lots and I’ve use them as my inspiration for the next 20 days of projects.
