birthday (and more)

I love birthdays,
even my own that says I'm a year older ...
A day to remember you're there,
count your big and small blessings
and enjoy the company
of family and friends.

It was a quiet day with lovely people
(which was good considering the circumstances of
the last two "unpleasant busy" weeks)
Many balls of thin cotton (Scheepjes Maxi Bonbon)
to use for some fine crochet.

And of course lots of flowers (for inside and outside)

*

Because Easter is near
I made some felted eggs.

(thanks felt-friend Tine, for the idea)
*

Of course I owe you the last picture
of mister "Starry Eyes"

It might lóók as though nothing much has changed
but there are hundreds more stitches.
*

The garden is more and more blue every day





Wishing you all a lovely Easter weekend
(though it will be rather COLD here !)

      De bloemen zijn misschien niet zo "bright" als bij jou, maar ze doen hun best !
