I have been soo busy this last week that I've hardly had time to pick up my needle.
It was my 45th birthday on Saturday and in preparation for the celebrations I basically spent a week in my little kitchen baking goodies . . .
|Swedish cinnamon buns !|
. . . and cooking up a storm !
|I prepared a salmon cheesecake, a sallad with beans ande oven-rosted vegetbables, |
a quiche and rosted chicken!
I received this creative box with yarn, crochet hook and flower designs . . .
. . . and from my lovely sister I received wonderful handmade gifts, amongst which was this gorgeous handmade recipe book . . .
. . . and this stunning handmade dragonfly for my balcony !
I also received cash which I immediately spent on some cross stitch magazines!
Firstly, I ordered a year-long subscription of one of my favourite XS magazines . .
. . . Cross Stitch Collection !
Then I also took the opportunity to order a back issue that I did not have : )
And I ordered this back issue from Cross Stitcher since I love those Vintage Roses on the magazine cover !
The tiny amount of stitching that I have hade time to do have been spent on the project that is a birthday gift for my friend's husband . Here is a little teaser from my progress so far ; of course I have to show some actual cross stitches in this post . . . ha ha ! It won't do otherwise : )
Anyone who recognizes the design ? ? ?
I leave you with a cute pic of two of my furbabies : = )
Happy Stitching everyone!
