Accepting my early retirement I am filling my days with quilting and sewing projects as well as catching up on my blog and organising my huge backlog of holiday photos. I have also started the Royal School of Needlework's Diploma classes at Hampton Court Palace. That's what I love – hand work, travel, being around my family and writing about it.
Colour and activity is slowly coming back to the UK as Spring begins its steady passage towards Summer. These pictures were taken in the Cotswolds and in Freeland, Oxfordshire – perfection in the petals and the new lambs.
