Gorgeous, gorgeous tulip.
This little beauty has opened up in my garden in the last two days, much to my delight. The buds seemed to be teasing us - looking for days like they were about to pop open, but staying firmly shut tight.We are at that brilliant time of year when everything is bursting into life and green, white and pink clouds of colour are everywhere. I just love it.
Every day the two bigger nuts and I have planned an activity for when baby nut is asleep and we can concentrate in peace (baby sisters can be such a distraction, you know). Today it was Hama beads. I've only just discovered these beasties and I have to say, I'm completely addicted. Hi, my name's Emily and I'm a Hama-holic...
Yet again, I'm proving to myself that I'm incapable of concentrating on just one thing at a time (though the springtime throw has been by no means neglected - I'm up to 140 squares now - yippee skippee!) and I've got myself started on another interim project. Here's a taster:
The yarn I'm using is Debbie Bliss handknit cotton DK and I'm finding it really pleasing and easy to work with.My inspiration has come from this:
