My birthday!

Happiness seems made
to be shared.
-Jean Racine.

I celebrated my birthday during the week and was spoilt big time by my boys. Heather and I went out for a lovely morning tea....lovely tea for two and cheesecake!!! Heather then presented me with a beautiful basket jammed full of goodies.
There was absolutely everything yummy you could think of in that basket. I was really surprised to see buttons in there, as we are both a bit clingy to our buttons. Can't wait to get that wool on my knitting needles.

This would be me and my partner in crime Heather. We have been friends for so many years and knitted miles of jumpers together.
I had a wonderful birthday aside from all the presents. Lovely visits and phone calls from lots of friends and family. Sorry to the people who phoned up to wish me Happy Birthday and I couldn't talk for long. There were people in and out visiting me all day, so I was a bit pressed for time. Thank you for your kind wishes.

Here is a photo I said I would should show you. In a previous posting I showed the Girls Corner banner come wall quilt. Here is the cushion I made out of the leftover material. And the cushion itself is made out of the rows of wadding someone had given me.
I plan to sew some more cushions for the girls corner and at the moment I am stitching the Boys corner banner as well for the boys.
It should make a nice display when I get everything completed.

As I am on holidays I also have found the time for knitting as well. A friend of ours is expecting a baby and I have every excuse to knit as much as I like!!! lol. I have made sure to make blues and pinks and here is what I've made recently.
I am so happy with how this jacket turned out. I just love the fancy collars. The pink jacket also has a cute collar and a herringbone stitch on the top part of the work.

I have only just finished stitching this one up right before my posting, so I haven't stitched on buttons yet. I have to say, I love the old pattern books to knit from.
I just adore this old book and the pages are falling apart everywhere, but I keep it in a plastic folder to make sure I don't lose any of the patterns.

Today I painted our bathroom, with help from Cory. Brandon would've helped but he was still sleeping. Pixie and I are off to the shops soon to see what fixtures can join the new bathroom. Have yourselves a great week and I shall return soon.
Kind regards, Anita.

Hello Anita,

Heather is one clever lady,she gave you big buttons so you would have to use up your supply for the baby knitting. Gosh that baby on the knitting book looks so happy.
Hope the renovations went well.
Happy days.
