Working on 5000 Projects at the same time

It must be rather confusing to be following this blog. So many things unfinished. But this embroidery about which I wasn't sure first has been improving (I can't say I did it because I rather feel it grow like a plant and develop according to the laws of nature). I enhanced the contrast between the colours and used more greens in order to balance the reds which in the beginning were too loud. Now I really feel like going on and finishing it soon.

I went to get bread and stuff and on the way took a few signs of spring. The sun is shining brightly onto our balcony and warms it which I think our oleander will greatly appreciate. Here, on the south side of the house, it is a lot warmer than outdoors around us. This photo is for Reyna!



Cornus mas is in full blossom. In September there will be dark red, sour fruits, a little similar to cherries, in the shape of a rugby ball. Only very curious people eat it or cook jam out of it. But it is good!




Siberian Squill is the name of the blue flower.








A heart in the ditch? A forgotten Valentine? We'll never know. Mine is not there. Mine is rising in the sunshine, looking forward to the warmer season, the green of the trees, long days and the view of playing children.

I have at least as many unfinished things I show every day too. It is fun to always have something in progress to pick up and work on.

Eva, the needlework is now wonderful, you are definitely heading in the right direction. I loved the photo of the heart cast away. How good to hear that yours is soaring!
