Yesterday down here it rained from morning till night, I know some areas are flooded but thankfully I live at the top of a hill... I did venture out for half an hour to walk Wrecks the dog but in the end we retreated home, both soggy and dejected!
So as it was an indoors day I decided to get creative and made this cushion cover to replace a rather tatty one in the lounge. The central cross stitch embroidery is done on 22 count aida, I found it in a frame in a charity shop ( I think that's a thrift store in the USA) it cost me 25p! It's a bit sad that someone called Anne has spent hours making that cross stitch, had it framed and dedicated it to her Mother according to the back of the picture, and it has ended up as a bit of old junk. Anyway I took it out of the frame and made it into this, and I'm pleased with the result.
This morning the rain has stopped and I had a wander in the garden and to my great pleasure the first frogs have arrived in the pond and the newts too, so spring is really on the way.
