Happy Birthday to ME!

How wonderful are my children? They were entrusted with $10 each with which to buy me a birthday present and this is what they came up with. Amber bought me a cushion cover because she knows I like sewing, and an easter egg because she knows I like chocolate. She was also kind enough to give me her pocket money! Patrick knows me well too and bought me some yarn. There are 2 balls of Panda magnum new soft 8 ply (100% acrylic) and some Homemaker everyday 8 ply acrylic and a 3.75mm pair of straights. The magnum is really nice and slinky soft. I suggested to Max that the mug would be a lovely idea for my birthday a couple of weeks ago when we were shopping at Spotlight. They were so excited with their gift giving and the independance they had in chosing their gifts. I feel very lucky and loved.And in the interests of full disclosure, this is me (in my jarmies) on the morn of my 39th birthday. ouch.

That's actually a pretty good morning picture, Sam. You must have been having a good birthday; look... no vomit or snot on your pj's at all!

(My bubs have colds. Sigh.)

Happy birthday! That soft acrylic is actually pretty nice, hey? I almost got enough for a little jumper the other day... Ü

I will have to drop some knitting-related hints to my hubby soon. My B-Day is soon

Happy birthday you young looking devil you! When I look even half that good first thing in the morning I give myself a high five! And I am only *21*(ahem!) so whatever you're doing, keep it up! Hope you have a lovely day and get to go out and eat some pancakes or something special and delicious for dinner...I am sure those sweet little present givers would like it too, :o)
