The big unveiling is about to take place. Just look at the goodness bursting to get out. The red spotty ribbon is good enough on it's own.
See I told you it was impressive didn't I?!! Just look at all these lovely gifts. Four wonderful fabrics, red embellishment cords and laces, ribbons for Africa, a needle booklet and lip buttons. And I wonder how she knew I liked red?!
The tape measure is really quite sweet. My girls are also quite taken with it. It rolls back up when you push a button so that's the big attraction. It's perfect for popping in my bag to take out with me. I'll need to keep that one hidden.
But I've been holding out on you. Naughty me! I'll let these gifts speak for themselves as I'm still feeling quite overwhelmed by her generosity and talent. And speechless for a change too!
The prettiest tea cosy and two coasters that match my mugs so well. Now I just need to find a red tea pot with white polka dots to match.
I am in love with all of it. Lucy, No.2, was home from school sick and she willingly helped to unwrap all the parcels. She was also blown away with all the gifts. We ended up laughing so hard we had wet eyes. She thought it was funny that I was so amazed with how lovely everything was.
Now I am making another jolly wall hanging to go with the tea pot theme. I'm having such a good time with it too. I do love to make things.
In all the rush with birthday shopping, renovating, daily life, sickness and the usuals, I totally forgot to post a photo of No.1's cake she decorated for herself. Life must be tough around here when you are expected to decorate your own cake! I thought she'd enjoy it. I think she did in the end with No.2 and I supervising and redoing the numbers a bit. Honestly she's so slap dash at times! Oh well it turned out pretty in the end and she had a wonderful day.
Happy Birthday for the 20th May Molly! Where did those eleven years go to?
