But I have no reason to fret, I have a great family, and fab friends and I have had an amazing few days, not without drama.
On Thursday, I ran a lovely Day Workshop, in English Paper Piecing, very gentle and relaxing and I think I passed on my obsession to a few more willing participants.
On Thursday night, I had supper out with my Sewing Bee pals - it was a smashing night of laughter & good food. It has taken me a very long time to learn how to hold on to pressies until birthdays or Christmas Days, but on Thursday night I went back to old ways, opened the parcel and was overwhelmed at receiving this beauty. Isn't it gorgeous?
The fabric is Notting Hill by Joel Dewberry, and it is even on the back!!
The girls know how much I love this.
On Saturday our family celebration lunch had to be cancelled due to a sick baby and an injured puss but I was still able to spend the day with my close family around me and both baby & puss are improving with antibiotics...............my OH & lovely kids bought me a brand spanking new laptop and this is my first post using it, what joy to be rid of the permanent red vertical line & the sticky "M" key. I have loaded EQ7, a surprise extra gift from Big Sis. How spoiled am I?
Today, extended family visited and contrary to the weather forecast, the sun shone for the second day in a row and we actually got to sit outside - wow!
I have been such a lucky "girl" that I thought it was time for me to offer a wee giveaway to celebrate such a momentous occasion - lol
I have been stockpiling this lovely range of fabric - it's Mod Century by Jenn Ski for Mod and I am going to give away 12 fat 1/8ths to one winner.
All you need to do is leave a comment telling me which birthday has been your most memorable to date. If you follow my blog, leave a second comment for another chance. I'll leave this open until next Saturday, 27th April around about 6pm GMT.
And I am sure you have been having difficulties guessing which birthday with a zero I could possibly have had - yes? Suffice to say, I received my National Entitlement Card on Friday (that is my Bus Pass, to you & me - I can now travel anywhere in Scotland, by bus, absolutely free)
