Birthday cake any one ????

HI every one :)
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

Happy belated birthday wishes for you, Mouse. You seem to have had a wonderful day with nice friends and cards and gifts. Lovely stitching, particularly the hedgehog piece. So pretty.

Anne said...

?? I swore I made a comment on this post...I was just checking your blog to see if you had a more recent post (backlogged in reading). Anywho, Happy Belated birthday!!!What lovely gifts you got! I really love that tea fabby from Becka! So sweet!! And that mouse holding something in his hands...makes me think of the Brambly Hedge mice (my favourite books as a child and adult!) That cake looks yummy as I'm sure it was!!!

Oh that sweet, adorable, worn out pupoosky!!!

Nancy in IL said...

Mouse, I'm so sorry I missed your birthday - 29, right? Anyway, it looks as though it was a happy one for you! Lot of cards, friends, family, stitchy goodies, cake (fondant?), and of course Bentley! My, he's growing by the day! One of these days, he will no longer resemble a puppy, but dress him in cuties while you still can, LOL!

I love the 2nd design down with the adorable little hedgehog! That is to die for! Your stitching is so nice, Mouse!

Carin said...

I also missed your birthday but I send you my congrats. Hope you had a wonderful day !!

Happy belated birthday! I'm sorry I'm late - I am SOOOOO far behind in blog reading!
