May already! This year is really rushing by. Yesterday I had an appointment in the morning and then was going to sew for the rest of the day but my appointment was cancelled and so John and I decided to go walking instead. We wanted to go and visit our favourite bluebell woods. They were resplendent with flowers and after our walk we stopped at the nearby garden centre. They have a café that does delicious food and we both enjoyed a prawn and avocado salad sat outside in the sun. We then went shopping for plants. I wanted some tomato starts and some bedding plants for the hanging baskets and pots. We had fun choosing our plants and when we got home we needed to get them planted in the garden. By the time we'd finished that it was time to think about dinner and so no sewing got done. I'll share some pictures of the walk tomorrow.
Today, after I'd completed my yoga practice we headed out to the local cemetery for a walk. We haven't walked here for two weeks so a lot had changed. The trees were all in full leaf and there were a lot of flowers. Whilst walking we saw a pair of fox cubs. They were very shy and it was quite difficult to get a picture but John managed to get a photo of the bigger of the two cubs.
Back home I pulled out my slow stitching. I haven't done any for the last week and have a lot of catching up to do. I'm doing a stitch along with Sherry but haven't fully kept up. I have completed the block for January but the one's for February, March and April are in varying stages of completion. Here's the January block.
I can't decide whether to work on this block and then go back and finish the March and April blocks or to get up to date before starting this block. Tomorrow I also plan on drawing out a couple of the blocks from this pattern.
