I took this at around 9.30 this morning, it was cold and windy but lovely and bright.
This was taken about 30 minutes ago and it is snowing a blizzard.
On a better note, my Amaryllis has decided that it will flower after all.
Just look how much my tulips have opened out, I am glad that I picked this colour, it is just as good as I thought it would be.
I decided not to venture out to Swansea to look at sewing machines, the biting cold wind put me off walking round so I got on the phone. My Janome 1600P will be here on Monday, along with the correct feet for FMQ on the Grace Frame. I had a long chat with "a man who knows" and am happy with my choice. I did discuss a new machine that is about to be released, it is a big upgrade, and a big price increase, but I need to walk before I try to run in the Olympics. Possibly next year, or much later this year. It is good to wait a while before buying a new release, let the teething troubles get sorted first.
I have some fabric to unpack and photograph, and the bracelet of course. The cat popped in this morning but Ben was not impressed so it will stay a visitor only. I will not risk a confrontation, but am thinking of looking for a way of providing some sort of shelter in the garden for her.
I will be back tomorrow with the next instalment of the " Quilt frame saga" when you get bored let me know.
