quiet ( 69 )

Today I celebrated a very quiet birthday.
No matter what I do next :
even when I stand on my head,
that will not change my age 
69 is 69

Well, sometimes you just don't want the fuss of a  b i g  party,
and this was a time like that.
Just Man, a few dear friends and some family
and LOTS of sunshine in the garden
made it in a beautiful day !


A rather early start with some presents

And the eggs a friend gave (yes, from her own chickens)
made a good lunch.

And of course there was ...

yummy cake !


In the past week I was busy making some good use 
of my box of fabric strips again

vibrant reds and blues and turquoise for contrast

one cuff finished.

(Ohhhhh ... I have still so much more lovely fabrics !)
