well as you can tell from the title, there is a piece of birthday cake for you all ... it was yesterday the 28th Jan and I was *cough cough years of age ... heheheh ...
kettle is on for you all to have a cuppa with your cake too :0
well I have had a busy old week with one thing and another ...
on Tuesday night Kath and Chris and I went to a craft cafe in the village where they live .... its a lovely little place with china cups and saucers and tea pots that don't match but look perfect together and rather nice cup cakes too ;) we had a lovely couple of hours stitching and chatting .... I took with me the Cherry wood design "Needles" and got a bit stitched on it too :)
I have been working on Kaths present as much as I can ... the only time I seem to get atm with Bentley is an hour or two on an evening so things aren't moving as fast as normal .... *sigh but he is worth it ....
I have told him all about you and even managed to get him to pose for you ... as we have learnt the word "sit" ..lol .. he loves to run round the garden and pick every little leaf up and then go "chase me "...lol
We had stitching night at the mouse house this week and I managed to run the hoover round and tidy up the scattered toys up before the girls came Phew ..lol needless to say not much stitching got done as Bentley decided to nick Bevs threads and run off eeeekkkk .... luckily it was got before any slobber got on it ...
DD2 and I went to Morrisons (local supermarket ) and got some bits and bobs and a chocolate birthday cake for the girls to have some on Thursday night .... we decided to treat ourselves to a ginger bread cookie when disaster struck !!!! the icing on it was rather hard and much to my horror it fractured one of my bottom teeth LL 5 to be precise ..... good job I've got an appointment next week to go for my annual check up .....
My birthday day dawned beautiful and sunny and I spent a lovely hour opening up my cards and presents and would like to thank every one who sent me cards and goodies especially Jo ,Becka,Kath, Gillie and Val just to name a few ....(there is some more goodies on the way too *vbg)
Becka picked me to be her birthday month girl and stitched me a beautiful little mouse ornament and in my parcel sent some needles and pins , some lovely ribbon and a beautiful piece of fabric with tea pots on it all with the theme of pink :) and some tea :) she knows me tooo well hehehehe
another cuppa ????
I certainly was spoilt rotten and as it was my birthday I started a new piece I've wanted to do for ages and it was kitted up last November ... I sew'd my heart by beth twist and although I haven't got very far ...I love it ... I have done a little bit more than the photo will show ....
On Saturday night 21 of us went ten pin bowling to help me celebrate my birthday and with something to eat as well ... well we had such a laugh ..... four lanes of bowlers and much cheering when I got a strike .... and lots of laughs when I missed heheheh .... the bowling balls are really too heavy for me so I had to launch them in the general direction .... I didn't come last at any rate heheheh.
A few things I must remember to mention .... Autumn is having a wee give away :) Di has been really good and stitched every day this last month sooo please go and pop over and say hi .. and encourage her on her stitching marathon :)
I've been awarded the versatile blogger award by Ali and June so I will do a separate post about that later otherwise we will be here all night ...lol but thanks ladies for choosing me :)
ok with out further ado I shall pop up the photos for you to drool over ..lol
