I went to the allotment...

... and saw

 a frog
 in the pond
S/he has long legs. It might be a female because we have

 frogspawn too. But this frog spent the whole time we were there calling so it could be a male.
You can see the frogspawn to the left of the green water plant. Biddle was very impressed.

February and March both brought presents.

For Valentine's Day sewing related ones

and a very nice book of poetry.

And for Mothers' Day

 Choccies, flowers, seeds to plant and yes...
... that is  a new lens for my camera. I had asked Libby to look out for a macro lens bargain and i had heard nothing from her about finding one. Thank you so much LIbby Steve and Jaco.
I shall now be practising close ups.

Latest makes

Last time I went to Texere I bought some Double Top carded cotton and I have made these two cloths
for the bathroom.
The latest weaving looks like this
The narrow band had sequins  so I am on tenterhooks in case when I take it  off the loom they have been crushed. I only thought about it as began winding it on.

My hat on a circular needle is progressing slowly. I have neglected it a bit because I have to watch the pattern so carefully.

I have also made new bathroom curtains but no photos yet.

It's March...

.... so the wind howled. The temperature with wind chill factor was -3C and it snowed.

By the afternoon the wind was still howling but the sun came out and the snow was gone
