My birthday day

I can't believe how quickly the year has passed and here I am again with another birthday to celebrate, and celebrate I did.

For the first time in many years I woke up and joined my twin sister to celebrate our birthday - here we are at the breakfast table opening our cards and presents.

My twin sister and her partner, and my older sister and her husband arrived last night and I cooked us dinner, and then this morning we all had a lovely breakfast together before heading off to do some shopping before going back to the same venue that we got married at earlier last year for a wonderful dinner.

Thats all from me, catch you later....................

New Year Activities

Happy New Year everyone were you in bed by 10pm like us????  Yes I know we are soooooooo boring lol.

I still don't have any sewing news for you, but I can report that we are making progress with emptying boxes, re-sorting my kitchen cupboards and getting guest bedrooms ready for the influx of guests we are expecting over the next few weeks.

I did purchase a little book - 500 quilt blocks when ordering some books for our niece for Christmas, but I haven't even had a chance to look at it yet but I am going to take it with me for my next train trip.on Sunday.

We did have two exciting events happen that we actually managed to get photographic evidence of - a couple of days ago our resident barn owl decided to come out for a late lunch and delighted us with a fantastic display of daytime hunting in our garden.  I think she is so beautiful and I have even seen her going in and out of our owl box, so fingers crossed we may get to see some babies.

There has been a lot of posts in the sewing cyber world on "Top 5 of 2013" - for me I don't really have 5, my greatest achievement last year was making all the dresses for my wedding (9 in total), anything else fades into the background for me.

I am starting to see the light - and I think I will be able to sit and do some sewing, probably next month now, without feeling guilty that I should be doing something else.


As usual, catch you later.
