Snow in Spring #2

Late last night I finished this and have to say I am very pleased with it.   A kind reader of my blog sent me two of these Tim Holtz fob watches so I am currently scouring my stash to see what I can put in the second one.   I love the sparkle of the DMC thread I used for the snow on this one and it will go on my tree even though Christmas is in mid summer here.
Today I took the HD3QBEM to a large local park to enjoy their Spring flowers.  
Along with ever so many of the locals we also happened upon Alice in Wonderland (complete with her flamingo croquet stick) and the White Rabbit (who was riding a unicycle).   All the little children - and me - were completely agog to see that Alice and the Rabbit were real ;-)
This avenue of 120 year old Oak trees is closed to all but foot traffic every Spring so that we can all enjoy the bluebells, snowdrops and daffodils.  But I think I exhausted the HD3QBEM as she has been dozing off since.   Dinner time now so I am off to wake her up.
Tonight I shall study the construction details for The Mermaids Chest and hopefully make a start on that although Hercule Poirot may prove a distraction too many.
Ah, it has been a great weekend -  what a pity tomorrow is Monday.


  1. May I say that HD3QBEM looks very stylish in her regal purple garb? That's a lovely snap.

  2. Lovely spring photos Margaret, I do envy you approaching my favourite season. Your mum is looking good and really suits that purple jacket.

  3. so sweetttttttttttttttt ..
    big hugs x

  4. What a delightful watch fob and just right to share a post with the White Rabbit!
    Your Mum does look very well and I'm sure the fresh air gave her a good night's sleep too.
