I want to say a big thank you to everyone who sent me birthday messages this last few days. It means a great deal, and is made all the more special because despite not knowing me personally, you have thought to share such sweet sentiments.......x x x x
I had a lovely day, nothing extravagant, just precious time spent with my family. A lunch date with my parents, where we shared much laughter whilst indulging in some yummy food. I don't know about you but as I get older time with those closest to me is more important than anything else. More than cards and presents, just time to all be together.
I was spoilt though, not least with the
lovely blooms you see pictured above....
.....and some scrummy new yarn.
Rowan Purelife Organic Cotton in
the most delightful shades.....
....10 balls of SMC Extra Soft Merino Cotton, as well as a
couple of balls of Rowan Pure Wool DK
thrown in for good measure.
As you can imagine, I am now
in Yarn Heaven *sigh*
This hand stitched journal from Paperchase is very cute.
I'm so looking forward to using it!
My sister very kindly gifted me some more
crafty bits and bobs, as well as a gorgeous
scarf to add to my ever growing collection.
All in all I am one very lucky
and very grateful lady
