Birthday plans!


Rain, rain, rain!  We have had a lot today!  My oldest son's school was closed this morning due to overflowing drains and floods!  He didn't get the whole day off school though, much to his disappointment!

I have been making more pincushions!  I can't stop now that I have started! 

These are destined for my little shop as well. 

It is my birthday (30th, but I'm pretending it's my 29th!) tomorrow and I have an exciting weekend ahead!  My lovely friends have organised a birthday high tea at a posh hotel and I am super duper excited!  It is something that I have wanted to do for a long time, but never had the opportunity to (or a hubby who is not very good at taking hints!).  It was apparently arranged a long time ago, but I was told of the plans about three weeks ago because they know I don't like surprises!  I have never been one to appreciate surprises very much!  I much prefer the enjoyment and anticipation of looking forward to something!  Hopefully I will have some lovely pictures of the experience to share with you soon!

I need to get better at taking pictures of life, now I am in the bloggy world!  I keep wishing I had my camera with me or that I had thought earlier to take pictures!  I will get better!  I know pictures make a blog and I love to see snippets of people's lives in pictures. 

Thank you to everyone who has visited my blog and I am very touched that people are taking the time to comment!  Thank you!

  2. Oh my gosh, so cute! I've never made a pincushion :)

  3. Oh I hope you have a fabulous birthday weekend and that your high tea is delicious!

  4. Happy birthday! I love your pincushions, especially the way you've embroidered on the knitting.
    Thanks for your comments on the shawl. I'm thinking you're right about wearing it just casual, and popping it in your bag if you're not sure if you'll need a cover-up. I'm starting to think I will wear it after all!
