Sun shining and green things growing, flowery things flowering and animally things making new animally babies.
Definitely feels like Spring today.
I was pleased to see my little seedlings starting to poke little green tips through in the greenhouse and the first little salad and radish seedling poking through in the poly tunnel too.
That wait for the first green shoots to appear is nerve wracking - full of self doubt - was my compost right, have I over watered or under watered, has it been too cold - and then the relief when you realise that everything is doing what it should be doing.
After that I ran off to my studio again - beginning to wonder if I am developing an obsession.
I started by unpicking the zipper so that I could stash that for another project later on, then just pinned at the length I wanted to the skirt to be, left a generous margin for hemming and snipped away.
To finish off the waist band I took a length of woven brown ribbon (which was recycled from some lace up boot style slippers) and hand stitched that roughly around the waist, then added a bit of gold braid, once again hand stitched to the ribbon.
These are not finished yet, some sequins, beads and more trim to go, but these will be available for sale in May.
