Spring's just round the corner....


I got some purple and yellow tulips at the weekend to go in the little "snug" at the top of the house,


flowers always make me feel so cheery, and so does a new magazine!!



Yesterday afternoon I sneaked an hour in the snug with a magazine and I read an article about a farmer called Kate Palmer who produces beautiful knitwear from her sheep.

I love this baby's set of a coat booties and shawl hand knitted in lambswool with apalaca, if only I had a babe to wrap them in



These are rare breed Leicester Longwool sheep and they produce soft, dence fleece, I can just imagine running my fingers through their wooly coats, I always think sheep have such sweet faces.


My pussy willow twigs I got in York are opening out, makes it feel like spring is around the corner





I love the way the tight brown velvet  buds turn into a beautiful  shade of green 


I'm the oposite way round to some people I like January, probrably because it's my birthday, but I don't like February as its bitterly cold and grey, just like today!!

Right must get myself off to work now,

Bye Lucey xx

The pattern is gorgeous - I too would need a baby to wrap up!!!

The tulips are beautiful, each colour compliments the other! Think I might buy some this weekend now that you have tempted me! xx

Those sheep look like they have such character! Ahh, and I almost forgot pussy willow existed, I've never seen any since I was a little girl. Will have to keep my eyes peeled! x

I don't like winter, I'm definitely a summer person. The only good thing about January is my birthday!

Lovely post, loving the tulips.

Hey Lucey!

The book arrived on Saturday so thank you so much! I would have been on here sooner to say thanks but we've been suffering from a dodgy internet connection (:

I loved the wrapping paper too! Really brightened up my day and hopefully it'll get me inspired to take up the needle and thread again!

I love the chair in your cosy corner. I am trying to persaude my other half to buy us a similar one.
There is nothing better than a good magazine. It sounds like a lovely article.
