Bit of this, bit of that

Haven't been up to a great deal since suffering the flu, tried to go back to work, then home a few days and now feel better to go back to work yesterday. So good, so far. While I've been off sick I've been doing some hand sewing but not finished anything just yet.

I've got "petals" to sew onto a hydrangea applique from Kumiko Sudo's book of Fabled Flowers; quilted a piece of half square triangles for a cover for my embellisher (it didn't come with a cover); and have part machine sewn a handbag; so all works in progress.

However, things are beginning to flower - my orchid in the kitchen (pictured) has now got 4 blooms and despite the horrible wet weather I've looked in the garden to find that polyanthus is flowering and the crocuses are thinking about flowering soon. Nice to see some colour and promise of spring to come.
