Happy Birthday to Me!

 
Yes .. this is the normally very camera-shy me!!  With my birthday cake(s)  – a collection of cupcakes – raspberry and chocolate, strawberry and pure chocolate – all my favourites.  Just about to blow out my candles – luckily Rosie couldn’t fit the huge number that  I should have had onto these six cupcakes so I had just a token half-dozen. 
 
We had a lovely weekend away seeing Rosie & her partner, shopping in Bath and listening to some beautiful music in Bath Abbey – perfect. Now I’m off to collect Ben from his favourite kennels, then a nice quiet evening with sewing in front of the fire before the Christmas rush resumes tomorrow.  Back soon with more news.  xx

Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday,
We love you!
Happy Birthday
And may all your dreams come true.
When you blow out the candles
One light stays aglow,
It's the love light in your eyes
Where'er you go.

Happy Birthday!

This is what I get for wrapping my self up so much in Christmas i don't get out to read my favorite blogs. So sorry I missed your birthday.

But my wishes for this to be the best year ever are just as heartfelt. Through your magazine, newsletters, patterns and books, you give all of us lucky enough to have found you the tools to create beauty and enchantment with our hands. And as busy as you must be juggling your publishing deadlines, you still find time to connect and say hello to your fans.

So first, I want to say thank you. And then to say, Happy Birthday. May the coming year bring you happiness in every single day.

And BTW (being that I am a photographer and in reply to your remark in your Dec. 21 post about lighting being kind) looking at your birthday picture, it is obvious that you you are beautiful in any light – inside and out.
