Exciting Things

It was my baby girl's birthday yesterday, she became a teenager! She had a great weekend, celebrating on Saturday by going to Laser Quest with her big brother and best friend, then a slumber party in the living room with a group of friends from school. Then yesterday, her birthday, a trip out to Frankie and Benny's for a slap up meal.



She ordered a sundae nearly as big as her head! The waiter brought it out singing Happy Birthday to her and it came with 4 spoons, which was good as Imogen was soon beaten, She had a wonderful evening, we all did.



My excitement has continued into today with my order of wool arriving this morning. I ordered a few balls of the lovely Stylecraft yarn the other day, including the 3 new colours. I think they're gorgeous! The new colours are Petrol, Parma Violet and Sage.



I ordered a few more to go with them. Isn't it nicely packaged and presented.



All the wool came in pretty Organza bags, which are lovely for storing them in. Here are all my other lovelies with them.



I've also finished a cushion to go with the ripple throw I made.



I do love the bright colours, so cheerful. I found some pretty wooden buttons in my button stash (I do love buttons).



There are so many things I have in my head that I want to make. I think I'll make myself a shawl next so I can wrap it round me when I go into the garden and it's a bit chilly... it's very chilly now! We seem to have lost the sunniness from last week, but what is it they say... ne'er cast a clout till May is out, so I think it's OK to make myself another clout!

Take care

  6. Happy birthday, Imogen! I enjoyed seeing her with her ice cream on IG yesterday. Your yarn looks very pretty. I don't have the most recent colors yet but I do have the one from before that, Petrol, etc. I really like the new Gold shade. I hope you're having a good week so far, Cheryl!

  7. Happy birthday to Imogen, it sounds like she had a lovely time celebrating. Daniel always used to choose Frankie and Benny's for his birthday meal out. Love the cushion, lovely bright colours. It's always exciting getting yarn deliveries, one of the best kinds of parcels.

  13. Your daughter is beautiful! Happy birthday to her.
    I ordered some yarn from Wool Warehouse too and I do just love the way it comes in those organza bags! I feel the same way. Too many projects in the head. I found a shawl in the last issue of Simply Crochet that I want to make. But I am making myself finish stuff first. And here it is already May!
