I haven't been writing my blog for well over a week . When we get towards the end of the winter my enthusiasm for all sorts of things starts to flag . I sit around reading and doing a crossword . I like to sit in the conservatory if the sun is shining .
These brave little flowers are the only blooms in my garden but hopefully if the sun shines this weekend I will be able to tidy bushes and cut dead looking plants back .
I have sewn my postcard swap now , I have been puzzling for days  . The theme for this month was memories . I found it a difficult challenge . Then decided on  a winter scene . One for my own small collection and one to send to Australia . .  I did make a bag for a friend called the Angel in the garden . It's a bag with a lot of applque . It took 3 weeks to do a little each day . I finished it on Wednesday . I have been doing more quilting on my zig zag quilt . I'm hand quilting it intensley so it will be nice to look at . I have also almost finished a christmas wallhanging that has a lot of work . I made one , my son liked it so I made another one for myself .
In between every thing else I have some crochet on the go and Enlish paper piecing hexagons
If the sun shines I can get quite a bit done here and there . If it's cold and dull it's a no go day . Here's hoping for sunshine .

Hope you had a sunny day ,we did. It's about time that we saw the sun and the heat from inside the windows was really warming. Hope we get some more the morra.

We also had some sun today, the temp was hovering around the zero C mark, but the sun had enough warmth to melt a fresh dusting of snow we received overnight.
It will be another month or maybe more before we see any sign of life in the garden.
Love your postcards.
