Journal pages




The sun has shone steadily for several days and its been wonderful to be outside after such a long grey winter. I have been busy in the garden and yesterday friends came for lunch and we sat out side for hours. Not much sewing has taken place but these journal pages were made because of the joy I have had because winter has ended at last. Primroses ,aconites and creamy primula are every where. I am about to begin some red pages to celebrate the tulips , the amazing rhododendron and the reddest of red camellia. I have also to make the pages to write on to be opposite the pages in the photos.
Try as I might I seem to be unable to achieve good photos since my Samsung refuses to let me download and I am now using an old camera until I can sort out the problem.
