Lots of Circles

Well we got to share some of the Birthday boys cake yesterday....Ninja Turtle cake no less... cutting the cake with Daddy. We partied very hard and I am sure slept very soundly. Lots of cuddles with Miss Charlotte as well :)
I also FINALLY got to have a cuddle of my youngest Granddaughter Erin....ahhh so lovely.
A bit chilly this morning so we were a little bit of a snuggly bunny.
Ok....sewing? I have been really enjoying quietly sitting and hand appliquing my circles down. I had to change the background fabric because some of the lighter ones looked nothing on the cream.
Don't you like the way I pressed them so beautifully for you to view....sorry about that.
They are just so pretty...I love them.
I have also finished Block 2 of the "Frosty" blocks which seems very apt at present.
Block 3 is in the hoop and on the go....
I must apologise for not getting around to everyone's blogs at present ( I am so far behind) but I am having issues with my Tablet and as I use it to read all your wonderful blogs instead of hooking up to the big computer and also when I have some spare minutes I am finding it very difficult without it. I am off to see the folks where I bought it today so hopefully I will be back to "normal" soon. If someone Had told me 3 years ago that I would be this dependant on technology I would have said "You have rocks in your head" but here I am as addicted to my gadgets like the rest of the known universe. See what you have all done to me.
Have a super Tuesday,
Take care of you.
