i'm 38!


Woohoo, I love birthdays! Here's a quick post, mainly in pictures ...

Outfit for my birthday (taken at work ... I really *must* buy a full-length mirror!) - Sourpuss cardigan from Anita:

Flowers sent from Anita to my office:

Anita *did* spoil me ... here is her main pressie - an LED 'daylight' lamp - perfect for tapestry weaving!

A psycho cat (Frankie):

An inquisitive cat (Charlie):

Aaaand, my birthday 'cake' was my favourite ... the typically South Australian Frog Cake! I forgot to get the pics from Anita's phone, but here's the Wiki image of the Frog Cake ... and yes, you feel very sick just eating one ;)

And the cross-section, just in case you don't believe how incredibly sickening they are:

I hope you've all had a great week! xx

  2. Happy Birthday, Michelle!!! The flowers and sweater look amazing - the Frog Cake, slightly less so ...

    The Batty Bookmark arrived today - I might have a hard time giving it away at Christmas as planned! ;o)

    1. So I guess I won't be posting you any Frog Cakes then??!!

      I'm glad you received the kit safe and sound! Hey, you and your daughter could always do some stitching together ;)

    1. Thanks Glennis ... on both the birthday and the tapestry! I have to redesign the top of the tapestry, as I think it's too fussy for the simplicity of the rest of the design ... but that won't take long. Looking forward to getting a lot done on this and the tapestry assignment this long weekend! ;)
