Birthday Blessings

Last week I turned older… another year, would you believe it! I had a lovely day…

DD made me a cake with what we had on hand in the house:

It was a Brownie cake – yummy!

Got some lovely cards and pressies:

In theĀ  middle there, is a gift voucher from my dear sister to go to Gail’s! Yay! An excuse to go to a quilt shop! (Would you believe I have not stepped foot in one since I got back to Oz?!)

I also went to see “Saving Mr Banks” with my mum, DD, and a dear friend… it was a good movie, we all enjoyed it.

In other news, I finished the rag rug for the kitchen:

Better go do the dishes…. :)

    A belated Happy Birthday from me. On my first look at the brownie birthday cake I thought it was a piece of embroidery ready to be appliqued down :) what an excellent idea for a birthday cake. Your pressies look lovely indeed, a quilt shop voucher is always welcome.
