46th Birthday

Well it has been a week since i turned 46. I was spoiled by the Fat Quarter Swap Group as we have a Birthday club in this Swap Group and i thank them all for making my Birthday one to remember. Here is what i received.

Can you see the 2 new owls that have come to live at my house. Heather made the beautiful owl with the red ribbon and i have already got it in my craft bag to carry everywhere. The other owl this the scissors that look like glasses was from my girlfriend. She knows me very well. 

 I am also in the Forum Birthday Swap. Look at the beautiful selection that i received. As you can see i have started to thread the blue ribbon through the lace and i think that it looks great and with that FQ would make a lovely diary cover. What do you think?

Well i was a very lucky girl and had a wonderful time opening up all the parcels on my birthday as i was here with DS as DH was away at the mines. Thank you all for the beautiful things that i received.

I have been keeping in touch and watching all the beautiful things that you clever ladies have been up to but just have not had the energy to blog. But now i am back on a straight line and hope all the zig zag's are gone.

7 months ago i showed you some beautiful wool for making scarfs and i must say i have had a great time sitting and knitting over the last months. I have made 17 to date and had them hanging everywhere and one morning look where i found some.

Knitting Scarfs

Now i hope that you all have not fallen to the ground with two posts in two days. HA HA. I was inspired by Peg who put up a U-Tube link to show how easy it is to use the beautiful lacy wool and make one of those lovely scarfs.

My sister found and sent me this wool and now that i have watched the U-Tube video i am on my way.Started with the blue yesterday and should have it finished this afternoon.
Sharon over at Lilabelle Lane got some beautiful wool with little pom pom on the bottom. So head on over and have a look at the beautiful scarf that she has made.

I'm Still here I think!!!

Hi Girls, Yes i promised myself at least 1 post a month hopefully two or three but it has not worked out that way. I am still here DS1 had a motorbike accident when he hit a beast on the property and was flown out two weeks ago.

The Doctors and nurses and pilots that work for the rescue ambulance and ambulance officers are just so wonderful and amazing words can not express how i feel. They came in got him checked and ready to fly. Got him into the chopper and were on there way in 30 minutes of arriving. They are just so wonderful and then came when i got to the hospital. I had to drive 3 1/2 hours to Cairns don't remember much just wishing to get there. They came to see how DS was and to check that i had got there OK and safely.

So we are now home after 3 days in Hospital with a broken wrist in 4 places and gravel rash down both arms and on both shoulders and left hip and 5 stitches. I am one very lucky mother and one very lucky DS. DS can not remember where he was on the property and can not remember riding back home to the house. I do not no how he rode the bike when i say his wrist and arm. I now turn into the nurse and have to do the dressings and cleaning up every two days and everything is cleaning up so well. We are all well and glad to be back home and now mother here can pamper DS1 for a while.

I will be back on the weekend with a happy post as we have an appointment with the orthopedic surgeon over the next two days with traveling. I have some wonderful swaps that i have been in and received to show you all, so hope that you all have a great week and see you again on the weekend.
