Daffodils, Trapunto and A Simple Supper

1   The daffodils that I bought the other day are all open and very beautiful.

2   When we were in America  about 30 years ago, I bought some fabric to make into Trapunto panels. I still haven’t used them!  However, the technique has  stayed with me and I decided to use it on the baby blanket that I am making. I’ve been working on it all day, using stem stitch and chain stitch so that each segment of The Very Hungry Caterpillar is now padded and raised and looks brilliant! I am really pleased with it.

3    Embroidering all day called for a very simple supper! Chicken risotto with leeks and mushrooms with a spinach salad with balsamic dressing – delicious!

Weekly Photo Challenge – Colour

Lovely challenge this one. My favourite colours are greens and blues but, looking through my collections, I decided that shades of pink and purple would be interesting! I hope you enjoy this selection taken over the last year at home and away.  Click on any one for an enlargement.
