Birthday Girl

Today it was Margaret's birthday - a milestone birthday.  Moya and myself travelled down to Scrapbook Magic in Mullion to wish her a very Happy Birthday and join in the birthday fun with several other crafting friends.  I feel so very lucky that Margaret and I have become such good friends.

 There was lots of cake and some bubbly too to help celebrate.  Chris's husband had made the most delicious and incredibly light Victoria sponge cake - what a clever man.

This is the card I had made for Margaret, it's a very quirky design which I knew she would like.
And I'd made her this little cross stitched scissor fob and attached a pair of Tim Holtz scissors for her to use solely for fabric.  
Although we were only able to stay a few hours it was lovely to be able to spend time with Margaret on her special day.

This evening we have been crafting at Moya's and I have continued to make good progress on a baby's cardigan I was asked to knit for someone by a friend and work colleague.  I'm trying very hard to get it completed before I go back into work.
