As some of will have noticed on Jo's blog, I had an annual event yesterday :-) I have to say it was up there with the best too. Jo popped down at morning coffee time with a bag full off goodies and I feel the need to share a couple of them with you cos I was so blown away by them.
This was the birthday card she made for me. It's all machine embroidered and of course is meant to be me with my, now, 5 little grandchildren. I love it. Isn't she just so clever?
This is the other pic that I want to share with you. It's well worth clicking on it to enlarge it cor a closer look. She has done us one of her amazing collage pics of the front of our house. She has chosen the fabrics to perfection and done a truly amazing job of it. There is just no doubt of where it is a pic of and it will be framed up to take pride of place in our home. Thank you so much Jo. You really are so talented.
If anyone wants one of their home then do let her know.
The only thing I ever really ask for on my birthday is to get all my family together and we have often all gone out for a meal but as you can imagine it's not so easy with 3 new little family members so this year I decided to celebrate by having everyone here for a buffet tea. It's my son Mark's birthday on 25th too so we always have a party at some point.
So, my first is that it was the first time all my 5 little grandchildren were together since the latest arrived. Jo had big ideas that I would be able to get a photo of me with all 5 but it's just not that easy....one being a little shy with all the people around, one not sitting still for more than a few minutes and any one of the other three needing feeding :-) So I just snapped away and have put them all together as best as I could :-)
Hope you have enjoyed my celebration post as much as I have :-)
