Am I the only one counting down till the end of winter? For the record, there are only 18 days to go! I don't mind the cooler weather, but a month or so is more than enough for me. I love being inside listening to the rain on the tin roof, but hate being outside in it. I loathe spending the day in wet shoes because the work carpark has no gutters or drains; it turns into a river every time it pours.

But I love the little signs that spring is on its way. First the daffodils make their appearance.

Then the cherry blossoms start blooming, and I know for sure that winter really is almost gone. The only downside is that the rain and wind usually batter the blossoms pretty quickly.

Only a little bit of sewing going on here this weekend. I'm hoping to get back into markets next month, so I've started putting together a few bunnies...still faceless but getting there.

We've had much nicer weather up here, although it is still so cold at night. Last week we had a minimum of 2deg, yuck.
I miss all the spring flowers up here, but I don't miss Melb weather!
