Yes its time to show my ORT jar, not a lot has gone in this month. Can you see the pinky, purple fuzzy silk floss near the top.... that was from some frogging of cushion stitch.. Could I get it right?, no sir, I had three attempts before I thought 'that's enough it will have to do'. It's part 1 of a SAL, Dawn of Spring, designed by Mouse of FS. The fabric is 28ct evenweave which I dyed with Dye-N-Flow and floss is Dinky Dyes silk Floral Lei, with Mill Hill sead beads. Now waiting for the next part..... thank you Mouse, take a peek at the Mouse House (link on right).

Packages flew past each other across the pond this last week, my pincushion in IHS group Easter/Spring swap arrived the same morning my partner received hers. Mary made the cutest little acorn with a real acorn top, and hand-stitched all. This is what was in my package...

Weather is finally looking good, just might get into the garden tomorrow and tidy up after a hard winter. I know I have lost a few plants, but I'm pleased to see my daffs and tulips are in flower. Will try and take a photo if the sun shines.
