A spring in my step

Although it's still only February, the weather has picked up here and there has been some much needed sunshine as well as a few glimpses of spring. It was lovely walking to school with Miss M this morning, the sun was shining, we could see spring flowers appearing in the gardens we passed and people do seem that bit cheerier.



Some pretty spring flowers - snowdrops in the park, a bunch of cheap but very cheerful daffodils on my kitchen table and a little primrose purchased this morning for the grand sum of 80p is brightening up my bedside table. I have also been thinking about some spring crafty projects and have been looking at the book you can see in the photo above - Crafting Springtime Gifts by Tone Finnanger. I have had this book for a few years now and must admit that I haven't made anything from it (yet!), but it's a lovely book to look at with lots of ideas for Easter and spring.

I have been enjoying working on this cross stitch kit, I just love all the pretty spring like colours...

Finally, a toasted hot cross bun and a cup of tea enjoyed in the kitchen this morning with the sun streaming in through the window - a simple pleasure. I always feel that spring is almost here when I see lots of hot cross buns appearing in the shops. I have never baked hot cross buns before, but would like to have a go someday...

Thank you for the lovely comments on my last post - it's good to know that others share the "button love"! Also, hello and welcome to my new readers and followers, I am so happy you've stopped by.
