Spring is in the air . . .

 My first attempt at an oven mitt.  I was pretty pleased with myself.  I have since downloaded a pattern and got some special insullation wadding for my next one.
 I was imspired by this clever lady to try out these little zipper bags.
 Another win for mid week, and a happy birthday recipient too!
 . . . and finally these buds on my Hippiastrum - mum shared some special bulbs with me and I'm so excited to see these.  I moved them to pride of place right outside my back door where I can keep my eye on them.

 Mother and Child at the Lake today
 . . . and then home to my baby!  It's sitting up on a box now and those little tail feathers are growing.
Yesterday I picked my first bunch of roses to bring inside to enjoy.  Just a few sunny days and there are roses everywhere.  This is the famous Just Joey, and it's such a lovely large rose. 
I am LOVING the Spring Time this year.

I love your Hippeastrum, I have one bulb left from last christmas, it has plenty of leaves but I think that there is no flower in sight.
You are supposed not to water the bulb for about 2 months but it was so hot here that just I couldn't bring myself to do it. Maybe next year!
Love your zipper bag.

Just Joeys are the best. My mother grows them as big as dinner plates.

Always lovely things to see on your blog Annie!! I have heaps of that stuff that goes into oven mitts, the thermal stuff, can't remember it's name right now.
Let me know if you want me to bring some on the weekend.

What a busy Annie you've been! And the little guy is really starting to look like a bird who's going to thrive. Lovely flowers, too, as always.

I am so happy that your little canary is coming right along. It looks like he will be just fine.

Wow, your little canary looks different every time! He looks a picture of health :o)

I love your sewing projects, especially the little pouch. I might have to get the sewing machine out this week and make some for Christmas presents.

Nice mitt. I remember my Mum making them and using leftover woolen fabric or blankets to line/insulate.
