You are invited....

Well you aren't but 8 lovely young ladies are - to Chloe's 9th Birthday party. After having no idea of what I was going to do, Chloe and I came up with a few really good ideas.

Chloe's invitation

All she wanted was her friends over for a few games and nachos and tacos for dinner - easy!

We're just adding in a few extras! I will give you a full debrief after the big event!!

And here is a little something I made for my brother for his birthday - again, I find it hard to know what to make or even buy for men!

Duncan's cushion

I do know his wife really liked it!!

And here's what I have been spending a lot of my spare time doing.

Busy working

I'm making some bits and pieces to donate to the The Toy Society and handmadehelp.

And of course, I'm working on some special new patterns which will hopefully be ready for the Stitches and Craft Show. Now THAT you definitely are invited to!!
