Sunshine days.

T'was Mothering Sunday here in the UK yesterday and as my poor Mum has been a bit under the weather lately, I popped over to see her in the afternoon, armed with posh chocs, some pretty Spring flowers and a couple of bottles of Lucozade as a 'pick-me-up'. We sat in the conservatory, drinking coffee and eating chocolate biscuits while we nattered about life, the universe and of course, my newest tiddly sized niece, who happened to be visiting with her mummy and big sister. Needless to say, I couldn't resist another Auntie cuddle.

In fact, through the family grapevine, I recently discovered that quite a few of my family pop quietly in to read 'Bearing All' from time to time (I had no idea!) and Mum is one of them, so if you're out there Mum, I hope you're feeling better by the time you read this post!

Of course, as a Mum myself, I too was treated to a burst of sunshine yellow flowers and lovely girlie pamper products. Both my son and daughter gave cards designed to make me smile and as you can see below, my son's card was very apt! It was nice to feel appreciated yesterday, but all in all, I feel pretty lucky all year round because of course, I am Mum to the best kids in the world.

Earlier today, I took a photo of the apple blossom tree which grows right outside my bedroom window; it won't be long before those buds turn into zillions of tiny flowers, filling my window with blossom, pretty as a bridal bouquet! I have a little pot of ornamental daffodils blooming on the patio too ... oooh, I do love Spring flowers and it will be tulip time soon!

This burst of Springtime yellow is tugging at my creativity, so today I'm going to fling open the window in my workroom and invite the sunshine to stream through. Then I'm going to finish this little fellow because it's about time I gave that cute knitted vest a bear to wear!


  1. what a cute little vest Paula...and is such "springy" colours...

  2. I can't wait to see this bear finished Paula.He looks like he will be very traditional with the fur that you have used.
    It was nice to meet you at Hugglets.

  3. I love this post Paula. Really lifted my spirits.

    I adore the last photo, partly because I can't wait to see this cutie and partly because like an idiot, I've been ladder stitching in my sewn in labels for eight years and having looked at your photo, have just twigged I can sew it in while sewing together the bear pieces. What was I thinking?!

    Hugs, Sarah x

  4. Hello y'all! Thanks for popping by, it's lovely to hear from you.

    Sarah, yes, you certainly can sew your label in whilst sewing your bear together ... I hadn't ever considered any other way - we live and learn don't we?!

    Vee, I'm pleased you like the little sweater, I love the colours together. Trouble is, it's too big for the bear! So, I've had to put it aside and will make a bigger bear to wear it instead.


Thank you for visiting my Bearing All blog.
