Happy Birthday DS1

Today it is our eldest son's 26th birthday - writing that down is making me feel that I'm getting old! David is a bus driver so the Papermania stamp set I bought a while ago has come in perfectly for his birthday - he also happens to generally drive on the No 26 bus route so everything tied in neatly with my minds thinking.
Papers came from my scraps box, red gingham ribbon and brads are from SU but both retired items. The sentiment was a hostess set from SU also.
I have just got back from an enjoyable meet up with my friend Jill - we met for coffee and then Jill helped me pick out some clothes for David's present - as you can tell I am super organised when it comes to special events - NOT. Thank you Jill x
Not much crafting has been going on this week other than knitting dishcloths - three of them to be exact and I've still got a small amount of yarn left but don't think it would stretch to another one. All of the patterns I obtained through Ravelry and I managed to do each one done in an evening without having to concentrate too hard. I've enjoyed making these and think I might do some as stocking fillers for the grandchildren this year as there are so many free patterns out there.
The first one I made was the lacy one on the right, followed by the heart design on the left and last night I made the Thirds design. I used 4mm needle for all three and as you can see they are all ended up different sizes, but they were fun to make.
I'm hoping now to spend a couple of hours catching up on some stitching before DH gets home from work as there won't be much spare time over the weekend as I will be working.
Have a wonderful weekend - I'm hoping the weather will be nice for the next week as both our sons are going away on holiday in the UK - not too far away from home, one in Cornwall and the other one in Exmouth, Devon but it would be nice for them to be able to enjoy some decent weather.

Well done on finishing three dishcloths, they're fun and quick projects to knit aren't they? I too am enjoying making some. Have almost finished the cardigan of the twinset so should be wearing both garments soon. See you when I am back home I hope.
