The youngest grand-daughter of my bezzy mate is a whole year old today. And, despite her nana dressing her up in an Elf suit for Christmas (I know, it can't be resisted, can it?) she is sooooo cute. I know she goes to see her nana quite a lot, and I'm sure she takes some toys around there with her,
and embroidered a label inside for her. (Bezzy mate commented that I had been remiss in not adding a label into the bag I made for her for Christmas. Which I will remedy when/if she brings it up on a visit, soon.) I really enjoyed making this, and the card and tag - who knew that being 'thrifty' would be such fun?
The other birthday is my neighbour's fiftieth today. Bah, she really doesn't look her age at all, which might be something to do with being a farmer, and being out in the blistering (!) Scottish heat of summer, and the bitter cold of winter. Mr T and I were out of doors in very windy weather this morning, pinning up 'Happy Birthday!' notices onto fences and trees this morning tee, hee.
Yes, it was still a bit dark when I took this!
I was just going to get her some flowers, but decided mid-week, that I should make something. So, a scarf and easy fingerless mitts have been produced. I like them so much I might do some for myself!
Yesterday, I went to learn how to make a felted tea-cosy, which was so much easier than I thought it would be. More of that later, will a piccie, for reasons that will become clear.
Well now, Mr T has just chipped away at the ground to lift me some leeks, so that I can make the leek and potato soup, requested by NBG for her lunch! She and nanny's lolly-dollypop are coming to stay overnight as mummy is going on the razz, with her mates, as daddy is away at his work.
