Pure Magic

I can't believe it's been a week since my last post, the days just whizz by as I'm trying to work on so many different projects and send out orders! I'm on the way to finishing a Commission Bear in pretty pinky apricot alpaca with the cutest floral paw pads! When she is ready I then have another commission Bear to start on for a nice lady in Switzerland. In between I have started on another embroidery for a new pattern (Sweet Dreams Mouse), this will be a fun one with lots of different stitches for all the pillows that she is sleeping on!

All my hope of Spring arriving after one beautiful warm sunny day have been put back a bit with freezing temperatures returning. But I did get to do some gardening and came across the most perfectly formed delicate Snowdrop, all on its own at the edge of the flower bed where I was. Despite loving Snowdrops I have never planted any in my garden so this was an even more magical treat! I dashed in to get my camera so I could capture this moment to share with you all.


I thought you'd enjoy meeting the little Robin that calls my garden his home, making himself comfy on my new cottage bird table!


I'll be back soon with lots to share, thanks for popping by. Hugs, Catherine x

That's quite spooky as I feel exactly the same about snowdrops and have never planted any either but one has mysteriously appeared in one of my pots .

Hi Catherine,
What a nice surprise to find the little mystery snowdrop. And what a lovely picture of it! Your little robin must be a welcome sight, letting you know that Spring will not be far behind.
Hugs,

Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day! Your bears are just gorgeous, and I really hope that you will consider adding a few pictures to the Once Upon a Thread flicker group. Everyone loves a good teddy bear story!

You are a busy bee Catherine!

I love snowdrops. Their name, how they look and them being one of the first signs of spring.

Hugs, Sarah x
