This year Philippa made her own cake - she did it all, baking and icing. It looked great and tasted delicious.
There must be something magical about turning 15 because DS gave DD a book - she doesn't read but liked the film Twilight so he bought her the book. Well she hasn't put it down, she was even reading in the car yesterday - I'm really pleased as DH, DS and I are all avid readers. I've just finished "Winter Rose" by Patricia McKillip, it's one I borrowed from the school library. I have never heard of the author but fancied the title and it turned out to be quite a good read, lots of intrigue, mystery, two different worlds and of course love. I've now started reading "The Beckoning Hills" by Ruth Elwin Harris - it's one of the Sisters of the Quantock Hills series.
I have been stitching but the things I've made are gifts so I can't share just yet. I did not do any of my Perennial Garden for JA UFO Night yesterday because I was so tired after all the shopping so I don't even have that stitching to show...BUT... tonight I have made a few cards. They look better in the photo than in real life LOL. They are from a DMC card kit, I did a Christmas one the other year so decided to have a go at the pink birthday one but I'm not so pleased with these. I am going to add some "Happy Birthday" or "Best Wishes" stickers on.
Half term is half way over and I have stacks to do still, but it is nice to be at home for a while. I hope everyone else is having a good week whether it's half term or not for you :)
