Thank you to everyone for sending me birthday wishes. I had a lovely day and had lunch with my husband, which is nice because we don't always have time with just the two of us. That might sound strange but we do a lot of things as a family,which is great, but don't always take the time for just ourselves.
Then on the Friday night we went out for dinner with the whole family - all 6 of us- my two big boys actually managed to find the time to come as well which was great. Usually if I suggest something they always have something else on. (typical males).
This is the gift I received from the Initial Heat Swap run by Cheryll. It was from Simone and was a beautiful heart shaped mug rug. I realise now that you can't quite see the shape because of the mug. My initial was on a little heart appliqued onto the mug rug. So of course I had to have a cup of tea to go with it. It is now is use beside the lounge chair. Thank you so much Simone.
And here's what I sent Anthea - a needle book and a pincushion. I had bought this pattern last year and so when the heart swap was mentioned I knew that I wanted to use it. I can see me using this one again. This was a lovely swap to take part in. Thank you again Cheryll.
