Spring is slowly springing.

Spring is here. No it's not. Yes it is. Well, it's on it's way. Isn't it? The slow arrival of spring is starting to get me down so I was lifted by the discovery of these flowers in my garden. I'm not sure what they are so if anyone has any idea, please let me know.

So a stitching mood lift was this :

I stitched it for Thom's birthday present, being a Moomin lover and extremely fond of the quote by Moomintroll himself, it was a perfect project. Stitched on hand dyed aida with DMC thread black (310) and white (blanc) and the lettering was Stef Francis 6 strand cotton shade 38.
