I know well that happiness

is in little things.

-John Rushkin

Hello to you all! Welcome to our first day of Spring!! Also a Happy Father’s Day to all the dad’s out there. My boy has been spoilt with a cooked breakfast and lovely gifts. Happy Father’s Day Pixie.
My garden is starting to bloom with all sorts of beautiful flowers and I can see butterflies hanging around the garden. We have been fortunate enough to have some much needed rain and that’s great for our gardens and our farmers.

I have had a fantastic week, work is super duper as always, family is going along happy. Perhaps not so much the visit to the periodontist for hubby and I, .....we both got told off!! Eekkk! We’ll try harder with our brushing. Gulp.

Here’s what I’ve been up to this week.......
1 crocheted baby blanket in blue, pink and white. Made with love for one of the 3 special bundles the stork will deliver....
A sweet baby jacket knitted in 4 ply baby yarn...
Found some interesting books from the public library to give me inspiration...
 
Some beautiful fabric I couldn't go without!!
 
Hacking around the garden, admiring the lovely view....


And as always thinking of Italy.

 
All in all,  a wonderful week. I have visited some of my favourite blogs and my there are some busy little beavers out there. Look on the right hand side of my blog and press on my favourite blogs,  you will see what I mean about the busy little beavers. Have a great Sunday.

Cheers, Anita.

So lovely to see your garden enjoying the arrival of Spring.
That's another lovely blanket - your work is always beautiful. And the little jacket is sweet too.
Have fun with the new books.

This is a very pretty and colourful post - I love it! Happy Spring, Happy Father's day, lovely crafts, and BRUSH MORE! LOL I couldn't resist - oh how I hate going to the dentist - every time I see him he reminds me of the major (scary, painful, expensive) work I need done - work which I'm going to put off until the last possible moment :D
