Spring in colours
You may remember that I bought lots of bright felt last time I went to the UK. It had been sitting waiting for me to do something with it, and this week I took the plunge. I've started on four new owl brooches. This is where they're up to, and I just had to take a photo of them with their beady eyes shining! Watch out for the finished owlies, they should be along quite soon.
On my way to work I spotted these gorgeous crocuses.
Then as I walked past the flower shop I couldn't miss these.
I don't know what you think, but I prefer the crocuses.
The flowers in the shop look too bright, they almost look as if they contain additives. They make me think of those bright sweets that are bursting with food colouring and sugar but don't actually contain anything useful. They're pretty, but just a little bit too bright.
At least now it's the weekend so tomorrow, sunshine permitting, I'll be out with my camera once again trying to catch a glimpse of some more springtime cheer.
