A GLORIOUS SPRING DAY WOYWW

This is my most favourite season. To see flowers, trees, shrubs 'springing' into life, plus of course, adorable lambs, just cannot be beaten. We have been away for a few days to the other side of the country, so have been lucky to see all this happening from west to east and then east to west. Fantastic.
This little chappie gave us a bit of a smile as he went on his way across the lawn of the Caravan Club CL we were staying on.
Can you make him out because the 'zoomed' in image will not load.
Anyway, we are home again  now and I guess it's back to crafting. I did manage to make 6 paper flowers whilst away......

but that was all. Both 'peg leg' and I caught up on some rest and spent most of the time watching the unfolding drama in the middle east and Japan on tv.
My little work area is therefore much as I left it.

An ATC layout - in progress - plus, some of the contents of a parcel which was in the greenhouse when we got back.

ie. some Studio paint, 3 pots of Terra, a knurling tool, a set of Artistic Stamper stamps and Corked Vials from Tim's Idea-ology range.
However, the worse bit of coming home is the fact that one of my settees is cluttered - with these......

As you can see, there are 2 now! both made by 'peg leg' from nothing to working guitars. He is currently practising hard and learning how to play again. I've had a sneak listen and he is getting better - don't tell him I said that though - but has a way to go yet. Still no hospital date so he may just become professional once more before his op. Here is a sneaky peek of him when he WAS professional - some 50+ yrs ago.


Well, it's only a little pic so maybe I will only be in a 'little' bit of trouble for showing it.
I'm off to have a look at what our leader Julia is up to now and hope to get round more spaces than I managed last week.

Glad you had a good few days away. We have not started yet this year, other than to get the caravan serviced. Our bird watching has been limited this year so far to the back garden.

Clicking on the picture gets a zoomed in view of the silly bird! Great to have a break away and see some of the different landscape of our great island. Love the roses but this time its those guitars from scratch! WOW XOXO Zoe

Lovely flowers - and I don't see why you should be in trouble for showing a pic of the handsome peg leg! Well done him for restoring the guitars and learning to play again....
