Everyone's Ready For An Adventure

Today we had Aurelia's 6th birthday party and the theme she chose was adventurers. All the kids had bandanas, drink bottles and flashlights as they travelled around our garden through an obstacle course and finishing with a treasure hunt.

As you can see the cake of choice was a dinosaur dig one and the kids loved it. We served jungle juice and swamp jelly, with sausages on rolls and a fruit platter.

I am tired and now need a good rest.

Mary Glover Sampler

You may all remember back last year when everyone was stitching Mary Glover in the SAL, well so was I, but I never did finish. Felix came along and then I got stuck on the huge rice stitch motif and (insert some more excuses).

I am happy to present Mary Glover finished and complete in all her glory. In hindsight I have to say that I actually enjoyed stitching her and even the rice stitch motif wasn't so bad when I followed the pattern correctly. I just love the colours and the pretty verse. Thank you so much Emmanuelle for sharing this beautiful sampler with us.
