Birthday celebrations are well and truly over! After a fantastic family party last night, with heaps of my rellies I haven’t seen in ages as well as many I see all the time, I’m relaxing and feeling like I’m on holiday! It has been such a great week, and I thank everyone who had any part in the wellwishing! I received many generous and special gifts, I’m feeling well loved and appreciated! I had to share one gift with you… it was given to me by my Aunty Linda, my Mum’s sister who is an amazing sewer, and who in fact made me dresses for both my 6th and 7th form balls! (No, you’ll never see those dresses!!!!!)
She gave me this box…
It was heavy!
Inside was a treasure trove of upcycling goodies! I was amazed! Knitting needles, crochet hooks, vintage cable needles….
Crochet thread, jars of buttons and belt buckles….
Craft magazines, patterns, a pattern file she had made for me…
Very old tapestry goods with heaps of beautiful coloured wool!…
All together on the blanket….
Do you think I can get it back in the box?
Of course! Except for the latest update of the family tree she and Mum are working on! Thanks Aunty Linda! It was a totally awesome gift!!!
Back to bunting matters! I finished my lovely blue and pink set and WOW! I love bunting!
I’ve got a green set to finish before I put bunting down for a bit and get started on some pressing projects! (namely, birthday presents!)
And one more shot of the purple bunting before it is wrapped and gifted!
It has been a beautiful day today, sunshine and warmth… it feels like new beginnings are in the ether… like the energy around me is changing… so it was the perfect day to put up my new prayer flags…. the old ones were cut down and placed on the big quartz cluster for a cleansing before being rehomed in a native tree in our front yard, and the new ones were hung with a prayer…
For a bit of a giggle, click here! I voted for Darwin! Who do you think is the best!
Have a lovely week! Love from Alice and Raymond XX
