Thank you all for the recent comments. I've not been around here very much, and that's ok. As a reminder to myself and to those who need it, it's ok to take a step back, to listen to and examine the resistance (which I've had a lot of), to look after your health (another challenge of late) and to live your life. I hope you've had a lovely few weeks.
Spring started a few days ago according to the 365 day calendar, but I have never taken to those strict definitions. I keep a look out for signs of spring, and to me it's spring when it feels like spring, I'm sure you know the feeling. The slightly warmer temperatures, the smell of the air, flowers and blossoms coming out to play, sunshine and the sounds of summer.
So I thought I'd show you some photos from the last couple of weeks, as I've been on the look out.
I finally finished a work in progress from 2 years ago, when I first started my foray into patchwork. I only had the backing left to do, and the cushion was complete! It makes me smile when I see it on my armchair. It helps remind me that the sun exists when all we see are dark rain clouds for days at a time, as has been the case this winter.
Although not technically related, I was glad that at least one of the photos of the dogs came out quite well. I had my camera to my face for a while trying to capture them, trying in vain to get them to sit still and pose for a photo. They do look a little crazed in this shot, but they are wonderful dogs. We played fetch in the garden.
This is my first blog post written from my new desk setup; a standing arrangement, which surprisingly helps me focus more and procrastinate less.
Have you noticed signs of spring where you are?
