It will soon be that time again when we reveal our bead soup to the blogging world, the first reveal will start on 30th April. I am part of the second reveal so my turn will come on 6th April, I have already nmade several items but I mustn't give anything away till the day.

I have been making other things as well and as it has been too cold and damp in the garden to start out there. Although I do have some flowers in bloom Narcissi and my early Camellia Haru Gasumi and lots of Hellebors, I notice the beautiful double flowered Magnolia Vulcan has shed some of the furry jackets from its buds, I do wish it had waited a bit as the weather is unseasonably cold with strong winds and I so look forward to seeing the wonderful display this magnificent little tree puts forth, so I hope the flowers won't all be ruined!

I have been sewing, for Easter I have made my sister a scarf from a piece of beautiful vintage kimono silk it is so pretty full of spring flowers and soft as a butterfly wing!  I shall be making more scarves and some ascots/cravats to sell later on hopefully.

vintage silk scarf  for my sister, much prettier colour than the picture
