Sunday already

But I’ve had a lovely weekend! Started with Saturday morning rushing around and falling out of the front door, who does that! I fell out of the front door and landed in a very unflattering heap, so felt a bit shaken up. I turn the horrible 40 next Friday and been feeling quite down about it. Anyways turned up to our knitcraft social at hobbycraft, ready to get one of the #daisiesforvicky blankets finished, @lyndascraftroom normally waits outside for me, but had messaged to say she was already upstairs…..bit odd….gets half way up the stairs and could see her at the top, but as soon as I’d seen her she’d gone, very odd! I turned the corner to our table and nobody’s there, but the table was full of cakes, crackers, my favourite cheese, favourite pate, drinks, I couldn’t understand what was going on, next thing out pops Tanya from ‘What I created next’ lynda and Margaret tanya’s Mum, shouting happy birthday! I soooo wasn’t expecting it, and boy I was overwhelmed! Lynda handed me a bag, i was that busy being in shock I didn’t realise the bag had my logo on it, how ace! Lynda had filled the bag with dream gifts for a crocheter, a gorgeous pack of ice yarn, I do like ice! An amazing crocheted birthday cake!!!! I’ve never had anything crocheted gifted to me before, isn’t it a lovely thing to receive?! And Gorgeous lush shower products, I could not believe it

Then tanya also gave me some gifts! An amazing project book, actually personalised! I’ve never had anything personalised before, and it’s got everything in it for crochet it’s fabulous!

Tanya had actually painted me a picture as well, I mean wow, again, I have never had a picture properly painted for me, if you zoom in she has actually gone to the effort of writing my name inside the bubbles, so special, and a handmade card, I’ve never had one of those either!

Isn’t it fabulous!! I’ve never felt so special to be fair, so lovely! Shortly after that the lovely lynn arrived with gorgeous Lindtt chocolates and another special handmade card ☺️☺️☺️☺️. People are sooooo kind!!!

Our Knitcraft group has been going for about 13 months and during those months I really have made some special friends.

Anyways!! Enough of me! We finished one of the #daisiesforvicky blankets, I added the border, Lyndas started the next one, bless her, offering to do all of that joining is no easy task! It took me about 3 hours just to do the border.

It really is beautiful, so much thought gone into each and very stitch by many different people. Margaret did the draw, and this particular blanket was won by Hannah Thorley from @quietwatercraft how fabulous!!! So this will be in the post for Hannah tomorrow.

I’ve even managed to finish some wip this week, my work colleague became nana last week so I’ve managed to make two blankets some booties and a princess crown

I’m going to sew some silvery gems onto the crown tomorrow.

Anyway it maybe Sunday already but it’s been a bloody good weekend!! Roll on next Friday, Christmas is….CAL launch!!!

Happy hooking xx

    Happy birthday. It looks like turning 40 is a good time for you receiving things you’ve never received before! I consciously turned My year of being 40 into the year I did things I’ve never done before (like going on eurostar , climbing eiffel tower, going on crazy 3g swing, watching a tv programme being filmed etc). I discovered turning 40 can be the start of new things! Hope you do too 💞
