Cake and Circles

I have had birthdays at every turn of  late.....some very nice people are born in May.
Hubby celebrated another turn around the sun....
As did our youngest Granddaughter.
NOBODY enjoys cake with such delight as our little girl....cracks us up!
When Miss E was a baby and suffering those terrible seizures, we were told her physical abilities would be at 5 to see her having a ball in the school colour fun run made our hearts sing with gratitude!
She even made it into the paper lol!
So happy big Number 5 sweet girl xxx
We also celebrated our friend Theresa's special birthday.
It was lovely to be all together from near and far for a very nice lunch.
It was a glorious Autumn day....the locals loved the sunshine too....

I stitched Theresa a little needlecase and scissor fob to pop in her projects.
I used my very own STITCHERS ALPHABET spots.
I have made the MAY deadline for Rainbow Scrap Challenge which was PINK/ROSE.
So some Rosy circles...
I am also stepping right out of my comfort zone and sewing some quite bright ones which I will explain later down the track.
On the subject of bright, my eldest GD was thrilled about gifting me my "ruby slippers" proper name "slumbies" I was informed for Mother's Day in my favourite RED....I love them.
Well I think I may be done. I shall leave you with a bit of naughtiness us "mature" ladies had a giggle over at lunch yesterday.....
Oh dear! Girls will be girls lol!
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
