I've been a bit remiss in posting a pic of a fab-o birthday present from George:
Looky! She made me placemats which match perfectly with my garter stitch blanky!
So clever and kind of her! I can't wait to be in the new house with the blanky on the lounge and the placemats on the table!
But because I was slow in posting, I get to flash pics of some other birthday goodies too - I think this has been my longest birthday ever!
These lovely things from Kylie:
I'm thinking the yarn might become another February Baby Sweater - maybe with a contrast colour for the lace part? Hmm, will think on it a while longer.
And this great package arrived last week from Shazmina, all the way from the UK:
More lovely lovely malabrigo sock yarn (not the best photo of the colour, it's really a lovely purply burgundy - Rayon Vert), chocolate, pig lollies (I may have opened these as soon as I opened the package - before I'd had breakfast even!), a kitty badge and a great keyring:
Can you read it?
Oh, and a DVD, which I stupidly forgot to photograph - it's called Lost in Austen and it's a UK series about a girl who swaps places with Lizzie Bennett in P&P! Am saving it to watch while I'm on holidays - can't wait!
And my mum arrived this weekend, in time to help us pack before we move on Monday week...and this was in her suitcase for me:
A perfect match for my tea set (which is lucky, since that was the purpose in making it)!
And it won her second prize at the local show!
I asked her what won (because it must have been good - see how the back up there looks almost as good as the front!) and she said it was something else that she made!! Heh!
