Sometimes it feels so good to spoil oneself with a pop of colour for the home when outdoors is dull and dry .. I did last week! I was having lunch with a dear friend of very long standing .. 51 years in fact ... at a lovely restaurant called the Silver Birch situated inside a nursery. I spotted a display of gorgeous Calla Lilies, or to be botanically correct Zantedeschia, as we walked in through the fabulous shopping area housing indoor plants and de-vine goodies for the garden and home. I decided as we were leaving to spoil myself and this is the beauty I came home with! Delicious pink blooms to brighten up a little corner in my lounge!
~ Flowers don't worry about how they are going to bloom.
They just open up and turn toward the light,
and that makes them beautiful ~
My Blissful Mood Blanket is pleasing me hugely .. Maybelle Flower Squares in favourite colours. 49 squares done and joined with 35 squares to go. I am starting to think about borders ... at the moment I am leaning towards either a white lacy border, or a many-rowed border in white but also featuring some of the colours!
and on the subject of blankets, the afghan I made as a wedding gift was delivered on Sunday, and the happy couple were over the moon with it ~ Happy heart ~
I have added a second group of blogs listing some of my favourite foodies we have in South Africa, really top notch and talented, I often go to their sites for inspiration. Do take a peek, I find most recipes can be adapted no matter where you live!
I am working on a lovely project at the moment, called Emily's Garden Blanket ... you can see pictures of the blanket in progress on The Patchwork Heart .. it is quite the most beautiful thing I have seen in ages, and I am making it for another very dear school friend. Pics of my progress will be in my next blog post! I am so enjoying this project♥
