He said he was wearing his birthday present which we managed to send out to him... a T-shirt with this printed on the front! It's very apt... at least he thinks it is!
There will be cake (it is baking as I type) but we're eating it tomorrow when my Mum and Dad will be here too.
Other things going on here recently... You may recall I made this applique some time ago...
Which was based on this very splendid drawing by the very clever Minx (daughter of the very clever Moogsmum!)
Well I finally got around to turning it into a bag. I'd been trying to find a lining with fairies on but everything I tried was just the wrong colour pink, so it has a pretty floral lining instead. I've made it as a sample as I'm hoping to make a variety of commissioned items from children's drawings... there will be more to follow.
And I also made this little owl egg cosy from a tutorial generously given by another clever lady, Amy. It was lots of fun and could have gone into my last post as it was very quick and easy but as you can see, also very effective. This might be a present for someone... or I may just keep it!
And last but not least, not something I've made but something I bought for myself from Etsy from another talented lady Jackie who makes beautiful machine embroidered items and also has a lovely blog! The brooch is made from silk and velvet and the colours are fabulous... perfect match for sainsburys bags!
