I’ve been away a lot over the last week or so, and seen both daughters (which was lovely) so I haven’t done anything textile-related, nor been reading blogs or blogging. But I didn’t want to let today go by without posting Easter greetings. Though it felt more like Christmas this morning as we woke to the heaviest snowfall of the year so far – Tansy thought it was wonderful – here she is wading happily across the garden.
At our church we have a tradition of decorating an empty cross on Easter Sunday morning with spring flowers to celebrate joyful new life after the darkness of Good Friday. Each person comes to add something, and in a few minutes wood and wire are transformed into a vibrant swathe of colour.
“Spring comes: the flowers learn their coloured shapes.” Maria Konopnicka
