Nice things!

A simple post today filled with nice things from this week. Enjoy!

1. Receiving some fibre from Marianne - the April instalment of her luxury fibre club. The colours were inspired by her recent trip to Paris when she viewed Monet's Water Lilies paintings.

5. Receiving a yarny prize from Rachel's blog - it's yarn to knit a pair of socks designed by Rachel Coopey, aka Coop Knits. Colourwork has been on my 'to do' list for some considerable time - I reckon this might well be the project to finally make me tackle it!

6. Enjoying the vibrant floral displays at East Ruston Old Vicarage (and the tea and cake too!!)
