How Old?!!

Has it really been a year since my last birthday?! Geesh, it seems like only yesterday!

I’ve had such a wonderful day!  DD woke me up at a decent hour this morning with a special gift she’d wrapped in a baby-wipe for me.  It was a little plastic frog, and now resides in the centre of our table at Rosie’s request.  How cute, I shall treasure it!

Downstairs for birthday cuddles, cups of tea, and special poochie snuggles from Kayla…

Kayla birthday girl

I took this photo while looking down on her as she snuggled in to me.  I am a very spoilt girl… I was testing out my new camera!

camera and frog 

I’ve been using my DS’s camera for the best part of a year!  (He’s patient isn’t he?!!)  My new little frog is in the above picture too, along with a “finish” for this week…

Doily 3

Doily 2

I made this feminine doily from a sweet pattern by Mothers Cupboard, designed by the lovely Fiona.  The pattern has suffolk puffs all around the edges, but this lace was just screaming at me to be used in the project (really, it was SO noisy! Tut!) :-)

(BTW… have you seen Fiona’s tutorial for making shabby gloves?  Gorgeous!)

foot rest

My extended family and I went out for afternoon coffee and cake at my favourite gluten-free cafe, and this evening I plan to do a bit more of the above!  Putting my feet up… on my new foot-rest!  Maybe a bit of sewing too?  And a family movie date.  Whatdya think?  Perfect end to a perfect day!  :-)

Hope you’ve had a good one too!

Birthday hugs!! Vikki x

Happy happy birthday sweetness! It looks like a lovely day! Love the frog in the baby-wipe - I've had gifts like that too, lol!!! My son used to use a whole roll of scotch tape on them, too.

Kayla is SO precious! Oh that face. Your new camera looks AWESOME, you lucky girl! I love your little doily, and the lace flowers are too sweet - they look wonderful on it, and you've given me an idea for a bunch of lace flowers I have sitting around!
LOVE your slippers!
