A Celebration of Spring

I am very happy to say that Spring is now well and truly HERE!

The promise of Summer and the warmth of the sunshine is enough to make one weep for joy. Don't get me wrong, I DO love a good chilly winter, especially when there's lots of snow and below zero temperatures. And I'm inside.
But it's amazing how GREAT you feel when you get the warm sun on your skin once again - it's like reconciling with an old friend.

And as the Spring bulbs start to flower I realise just how much I've missed colour over the past quarter of a year.

So this weekend Spring was celebrated by a visit to Kew Gardens for Austin and the boys with Aunty Gretchie while I celebrated some peace & quiet at home. Lovely.

Walking Boy has become Running Downhill Boy!

Of course there was a massive playground there as well, just incase your children aren't quite exhausted enough...

And while they were off galavanting around the gardens smelling the flowers I was at home making these for Luca:
{cute little buns he has!}

This is a 'trial' pair of underpants with the idea of making a matching vest top for summer PJ's.
I obviously have to tweak the pattern a little as these ones will probably fit him until he's twelve...

I've been doing a fair bit of crafting lately which has been very satisfying but I think it's called "Nesting".....
Only 11 weeks to go before bambino numero tre is due!

I really ought to start thinking about making a few little outfits and/or blankets for the new arrival...? Not knowing the sex does make this slightly difficult...
Can't wait to finally meet the little one really soon!

Linking up with Heather at Blessed Little Nest for {Life Made Lovely Monday}.
