Me!! I celebrated my 50th birthday this week. I cannot believe it, I still think that I'm in my 20's in my head, although looking in the mirror tells me otherwise!! I had a lovely day and Mr JK and Flo spoilt me rotten!
Yesterday morning we went for a walk through the woodland at Blickling Hall. It was a beautiful, but bitterly cold day. The ground was still covered in frost at lunchtime.
I finished my Halloween socks this weekend too. I love the self striping yarn. The colourway is called Leaky Cauldron and the yarn was gifted to me by a dear friend. I seem to have a bit of a thing for self striping yarns right now; I am itching to cast on another stripy pair!
I received two Christmas cards this week as part of the card swap in the ThreeBagsFull group on Ravelry. The gifts had to fit in the envelope with the card. My partners were very creative as you can see from the photos.
In case you're wondering, yes, that is Flo on the bookmark! Debby snuck a photo from my Flickr page and turned it into this special gift. I love it! Josee made me the little festive stocking brooch and I will be wearing it to school tomorrow. The swaps are such fun. I am lucky to belong to some great groups on Ravelry.
One more week of school before I can start to unwind. It's a hectic one too with Christmas concerts, a trip to the pantomime and class parties to get through. I'll catch up with you again next weekend. xxx
