What a birthday!

Hi!

Today was my birthday :) and I have had a good week and a great day.  I am very happy.  I met up with different friends through the week and was so lucky that by yesterday I had 10 cards waiting for me :), then today I had some more too.  Here is a pic....




I also had some craft themed gifts...one was a cross stitch kit..


and some HobbyCraft vouchers (guess where I am going tomorrow?).

I spent today in Oxford (I had never been before) and we had a great time, the town is nice and the weather was so mild.  But the company was definitely the best! One of my friends also gave me this book...I was smiling a lot today.

Two of my fave designs in this book are....the white rabbit...

and the envelope cushion case...

I cant stop flicking through the pages.  As I have spent all day out it means I have to have my yummy thorntons chocolate cake tomorrow!

Sadly, I haven't done any stitching but I did by some cushion covers that I can sew on at a bargain price and will try and get stitching tomorrow (between cake and shopping of course). I hope everyone else has been having a lovely weekend and has gotten more stitching done than me.

  5. Happy (belated) Birthday Kate! I just found your blog via Valerie (Fog City Dweller). I'm looking forward to seeing what you stitch. It's great to find another stitcher in the UK!
