Spring is finally on the way!

At last. Here in Derbyshire we have finally seen some sunshine! I always feel like Spring is on its way when the crocus are in bloom and the daffodils are on their way. I love the colours that come with Spring. Yellow Daffodils, Red Tulips and Spring Blossom.

We start dreaming of summer days in the garden and being able to spend all day out there pottering, weeding and planting.

The Spring brings changes here at teddybearscottage. We're on the move! We'll be packing our belongings and moving to another cottage in Derbyshire. I'm looking forward to it now I have the material for new curtains.

I've still had time for my knitting and even sat out in the garden last Sunday!

Frosty Mornings

We're still having frosty mornings here in Derbyshire. The sun's been shining though and the sky has looked so beautiful. Snowdrops in the garden and daffodils emerging means spring is on its way.

If your hands are still feeling the chill these gorgeous mittens will be right up your street! You can find the pattern here.

I've started to knit a pair and can't wait to wear them.

I've been thinking a lot about Easter and what gifts to make. The Knitting hut have a free knitting pattern for a Bunny Egg Cosy. I'm sure this would make a lovely gift. You could knit stripes, dots, or block contrasting colours. The world's your oyster!

You can find the free knitting pattern here.
