Yellow all around – and on the magazine cover too!

I love the colour yellow as it’s such a cheerful, happy sunshiney colour.  For me it’s the colour of early spring, and is all around at present ….

There are so many primroses this year, our woods are carpeted with them – and daffodils too popping up in places where I’ve never seen them before.  I’ve made the cover of this month’s Bustle & Sew Magazine yellow too, in honour of the season…..

and it’s out tomorrow!!  I finished uploading it this morning, so we went for a lovely long walk in the woods this afternoon which is where I took the photos at the top of this post.  I’m sure Ben and Daisy would want me to share a larger version of their photo – they were so good and posed beautifully next to the daffodils …..

Although they were feeling very impatient and anxious to carry on up to the top of the hill and through the broken fence into the field where Daisy can charge around and around and …. well I think you’ve probably got the picture by now!!  Then home again for a well-earned rest (Ben)….  

And eager for more fun and excitement (Daisy!) …..

I have no idea where she finds all her energy, but I wish she’d give some to me!!

    The young use osmosis to absorb energy from the older members of the pack/family/clowder/pride etc……. 😀 hehe

  2. Me too, I love yellow in the springtime, though it’s not a colour I would actually wear. I think daffodils are the best flowers; primroses and crocuses and snowdrops are lovely and tell me that spring is probably here, but they’re too shy. Daffodils are bold and tall, shouting out that spring really is here. Great picture of Ben. Do you have to hose them off after every walk, or does the mud just fall off?

    • Bit of both Amanda – I swish paws and undercarriages with the hose, but an awful lot does seem to drop off onto the floor!! Luckily it’s stone flags, so easily washed. x

  3. Just received my April issue full of beautiful things. I love the old illustrations you use, the magazine looks so gorgeous and full of inspiration. I make quilts for Project Linus so I’m sure at some point your ABC quilt will be made for a child in need. Have fun with your sewing x

  4. Thank you, Helen, for sharing all that green and yellow, and Ben and Daisy are just beautiful surrounded by the bright spring colors! I can hardly wait for our first blade of grass say nothing of a first flower! We’ve had such a long winter!
    The magazine, which is much like a book, is especially charming this month, and I loved every single page from cover to cover. Lovely!
    X Linda

    • Thanks Linda, so pleased you’re enjoying the magazine. I know what you mean about a long winter – we’re in that in-between stage now. Sunny yesterday, but cold and gloomy again today 🙁 xxx

  5. Hi Helen, Just letting you know I have got my magazine and you have given us plenty of lovely things to make and read about, I always look forward to reading it.
    Thanks for a great mag.
