Daybook entry #6

Outside my window ... the first roses of spring are budding, almost ready to burst into bloom.

I am loving ... eating the first juicy mangoes of the season
Today, I am going ... to a birthday lunch for a friend.

I am wearing ... bare legs for the first time in six months - scary!

I am wondering ... how I can lose some weight before Christmas. Unfortunately it involves eating less! 

I am reading ... exciting new purchases that arrived this week: 'The Practical Guide to Patchwork' by Elizabeth Hartman of Oh, Fransson!
And the first edition of Leanne Beasley's 'Vignette', purchased from Gum Valley Patchwork
The lovely Linda surprised me by including some Cosmo thread and a piece of Rosie Quinlan's new fabric range 'Sweet Broderie' with my copy of Vignette. Thank you Linda! Can't wait to get stitching with them.

And just for good measure, I am also reading the latest edition of Fat Quarterly, dedicated to fussy cutting. So no shortage of inspiration this week!
I am thankful for ... kind friends who have purchased my first pattern! And for the many who have sent encouraging messages through my blog or on Flickr. Thank you!

On my machine ... a frilly dilly for a very patient friend! Hi Nellie, not long to wait now. You might have it before Christmas!
From my picture journal ... blossoms from a crabapple (Malus lemoinei) in our farm garden in the spring (I have added this to my 'wallpaper' page).
Happy weekend everyone. Bloom x
