Cake!

Thank you all for the lovely comments on Rosie's top, they were all very much appreciated.

It was my birthday on Sunday, I would have liked to invite you all round for some cake but the distances involved would have made it impossible so you'll have to make do with a virtual slice!


Birthday Cake

I had a lovely day. We went out to lunch at a local farm shop, The Balloon Tree. The food was lovely and Rosie was very taken with all the animals and the children's play area. It didn't take her long to get the hang of the rope climb and slides are her new favourite thing!

After lunch we went on to Fangfest - The festival of Practical Arts held in the village of Fangfoss. We had a great time wandering around the festival, Rosie got a new fleece blanket and we got a new milk jug from the pottery. The festival is organised by The Rocking Horse Shop and Rosie had a great time riding on a couple of the sample horses.

I got some lovely presents that included my stash from the Festival of Quilts, Homemade by Elspeth Thompson and Ros Badger, the catalogue from Erna Hiscock's Darning Sampler exhibition and a friendship trifold. My main presents are still to come, the class with Lauren Sauer on Saturday and my parents are going to have Rosie stay overnight next month.
