THANK YOU VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY MUCH!
Hello everyone! I feel a bit of a fraud joining in the the desk snooping today as I have no crafting for you....it's been a busy week of seeing family and friends and celebrating the Big 6.0.
I had a marvellous time on my birthday, I'm such a lucky gal.
Some of the lovely gifts and cards I received, the balloons are from Julia!
I have quite a few thank-yous: Wipso and Twiglet for my lovely rose and gin (you know me sooooo well, lol!), Lynne for my gorgeous pendant, Kim for the beautiful pin cushion you made and Lynn for the vintage jigsaw, all so unexpected but very much appreciated. I got some professional watercolour paints (Daniel Smith), new palette and brushes plus watercolour papers journals and a useful book. I shall hopefully be able to show you them in a bit more depth over the next few weeks as I attempt to get to grips with them.
And some wonderful cards too! Thank you Lynne, Helen, Sarah, Debbie, Kim, Diana, Lynn, Neet and Eva from Austria xxxx
My old uni friend Jane sent me this amazing pop up card, she thought it appropriate - I can't work out if she means I'm an old Dragon or because I'm Welsh *grin*
I spent quite a bit of time cooking for the party I had in the evening, lovely weather meant we were all in the garden. We had a fab time and some friends had clubbed together to get me this:
A hare figure! Apparently he sat in our friends' lounge for quite a while and they got rather attached to him and called him Tony, lol, so that has stuck and Tony is very happy sitting by my birthday pond!
I made my famous trifle for the party and so the following morning saw this:
Trifle for a hungover breakfast whilst watching the Olympics on telly!! I know how to live...... It was rather good, lol!
Hopefully normal service will be resumed next week, thanks for putting up with me!
