Happy Birthday Avital!

For Avital's birthday I made her a new TV blanket
we celebrated today and I gave it to her

some of the wool has a silver thread woven in and it shimmers
I'm not sure you can see it in the photos

I folded the blanket and put in some lavender sachets before wrapping it
so that it would smell sweet when she opened the package

The Worried Toys

Spring has arrived and armed with a broom
mother decides to clean out the room
when she is done the toys sigh and cheer
they have all survived to play another year

On the Beach

I have a new obsession - 
a (very) early morning walk on the beach

I feel as if I've stumbled on a secret world
of earnest and industrious people
like a secret club

It is making my whole day better
and where I go, my camera goes with me

My niece Dana shared with me the latest joke
making the rounds in her kindergarten:
what did the lion say when the elephant stepped on his toe?

Featured: small needlework samplers based on Dana's drawings
soon to be made into lavender sachets

Flowers for Friday

There are so many flowers about - spring at it's best
this photo was taken in my local nursery
they don't miss a trick - they know the power of flower

This photo was taken during my morning walk
it is the entrance to a cake shop
flour and flower - another winning combination

A Yellow Fellow

People think I'm a cheerful fellow
just because I'm head to toe yellow
but it is true and I must tell
that I have a temper and am moody as hell
