Happy Birthday Sally

Just a small gift that i sent to Sally for her birthday which was yesterday. The design is from a very old magazine, stitched over 1 it fitted perfectly on this little tape measure and i knew Sally didn't have one of these in her collection of stitched goodies.

I hope you had a lovely birthday Sally and were thoroughly spoilt by family and friends.

This is just a quick blog entry as i am in bed with this awful flu/cough/cold bug that seems to be really active in the UK right now. I have it thanks to DS who decided that he would share his germs, not the ideal time of the year to be sick when there is so much to do although the men in this house are happy that i don't have much of a voice right now...

Take care, hope all is well in your part of the world


  1. Lovely pressie for Sally. Hope you feel better soon.... yes the cold/flu bug is around here alot too !

  2. Just over it Julie and do not want it back,take care drink lots (not gin) and keep warm.Snuggle up under the duvet and do not think Christmas.
    Loved Sallys pressie so pretty and delicate . I think by her blog entry she is delighted.
    Take care and hugs from afar . I should get DS to wait on you hand foot and finger or is that just too much to hope for lol.
