Isabelle celebrated her first birthday on Saturday 26th May.
Lots of lovely gifts to open
A table laden with food to eat
and a beautiful homemade birthday cake and lots of little cupcakes made by mummy
It was a lovely sunny day and we enjoyed a family party in the garden.
Even midge was around to wish the birthday girl a Happy Birthday, he's not keen on excitable little hands that grab out to give him a big squeeze!
This past weekend was the extended bank holiday for the Queens Diamond Jubilee celebrations.
We had our own celebration on Sunday 3rd as my mum celebrated her birthday with a party at their caravan at the seaside. Unfortunately the weather decided to take a turn for the worst that day and although we had a wonderful time, it rained all day. No pics of the beach as the sea mist was dreadful and we were partying inside.
I came across this whilst out shopping and thought i would offer it as a giveaway. Perfect gift for a stitcher to remember the Jubilee, 3 little ceramic thimbles. Just say you would like to be entered in your comment and we'll draw a winner in a weeks time.
Now to some stitching news...
The monthly challenge for May was stitched and here's what i did with mine. Kathy (no blog) received this for her birthday.
and i also finished my part on Lynn's RR. I stitched the two and a half birds on the very left of the design, it's now going off to Clare for her part and i'll be getting Dusty's this round.
Lynn chose this design,The Pecking Order by Marjolein Bastin.
My wonderful cactus plant has been flowering over the past couple of weeks, i took a pic to show the 6" wide flowers that it has. When i came to upload it i noticed the LHN Tea Room design in the pic, i was only commenting on Mouse's blog last week when she showed her finish that i had mine on my table in the conservatory, so here you are mouse, you can see it here lol.
I hope you have all had fun over the Jubilee weekend, whether you were celebrating at parties and other events around the UK or just sitting in front of the TV watching everything.
