Birthday Blog Post

Happy Birthday to me.

(I didn't make this - my talents don't stretch to cake decorating!)

Don't you just love birthdays?  The one time of the year when you can really indulge yourself.

I've given myself a holiday from housework these past few weeks and had fun crafting and making.

Amongst other things, I've finished my ripple blanket.

Sewn a cute little house (pattern from Retro Mama).

And crocheted a delicious slice of battenberg cake - my favourite colours!

Unfortunately I'm going to have to lodge a complaint with the English Football Association.  Who was the bright spark who scheduled a 6th round FA cup match between Everton and Wigan on my birthday???  I'm supposed to be indulging me - not my loved one.  I shall have my revenge - a feel a substantial yarn purchase coming upon me!

Hopefully we can have a nice day out tomorrow - sport permitting!


  1. Have a wonderful birthday, buy all the yarn you want.

  2. Happy Birthday to you, and Happy Birthday to me. Today I get 59 years old!

    1. Happy Birthday to you too - I hope you have a good one.

  3. Auguri di buon compleanno e cento di questi giorni felici :)

  4. Your ripple blanket is lovely. Not quite sure why, but it makes me think of icecream. Hope you are having a great birthday.

    1. Thank you. Yes I know what you mean about the colours of the blanket. Ice cream, lazy summer days and childhood holidays.

  5. Happy Birthday Mum!

    Hope you have a nice day out tomorrow and the weather brightens up a bit.

    I love the cute little house you made xxx

  6. Happy Birthday! Hope you had a great day!!

    LOVE that ripple blanket. ;-)
