I have however finished my mug rug for round 3 of the scrappy mug rug swap. I have embroidered a William Morris quote around the border.
This is the back side of it. Which I think is pretty too.
I am busting to tell you all about the process and inspiration but as this is a secret swap I daren't give too much away.
Do you know what has really cheered me up today? A couple of days ago I spotted these through the kitchen window. So today I braved the cold and took a couple of snaps. The first of the new season bulbs to come out. Such a cheery sight these cold grey days - I just know the crocus' and violets (one of my favourites) can't be far behind now!
