Birthday distractions

It's not a complete excuse for the lack of blog but I was rather distracted from all other activties by my birthday presents last week. I have a whole box of things ( becuase I am a lucky girl to have such a generous husband .....and probably becuase I gave him such a long wish list!). Here are just a few of my favourite things:

There was a lovely moment of confusion when I unwrapped one of the magazines I had subcribed to sometime ago. The poor man had been given such a list of strange quilting things he didn't really know what he was ordering and tookto confiscating everything that arrived in the post to do with quilting. I suppose he can be confused for mixing up Down Under Quilts with Australian Patchwork and Quilting magazine though. Or at least to query why I needed ( make that wanted) both! Still he got the ( very expensive) Sunday lunch reservation right with a table at the window overlooking Lake Ullswater at the Sharrow Bay Hotel. Not his fault it tipped it down with rain the moment we set foot in the gardens!
