Right now the feeling that Winter will never end is hard to shake. I can see evidence of the coming season around me in buds and shoots but it isn’t happening quickly enough for me. Perhaps it’s the half-hearted Autumn or the kind-of-meh Winter or maybe it’s just because the rush of Spring is so exciting. Whatever it is, I’m starting Spring in my kitchen right now.
A very sunny gift arrived this week in the form of some tea towels and hand towels. Aren’t they just yummy? Seeing as I have a reputation for having cool tea towels I figure these are a must.
Another new addition is a thrifted water jug. Far more appropriate for supper time than the old Pimms jug I had been using.
Last night I dusted down the sewing machine to finally make a new baby gift for a baby who is nearly one (take note friends – the gifts will come eventually). I feel such hope and joy when I sew. Coming back to it has taken me so long but I feel that the machine will be busy this Spring.
So Spring may arriving slowly but the promise of it is in the air and that’s enough for now.
