Fab birthday

Thank you everyone – I have had a very special birthday! This is just a quick post to celebrate my family’s amazing creativity – I just had to share these with you!

Megan made me this lovely birthday card


and painted this picture of the Glenfinnan Viaduct which we saw a few weeks ago.


Aidan made me this stunning birthday card

and painted this picture of the wildlife and scenery of the Ardnamurchan Peninsula where we stayed a few weeks ago.


Carolyn put together this excellent sewing kit for me – so I can stop borrowing hers! This is just the start – there are quite a few more items yet to be found.


Heather embroidered these amazing pictures: the first of Philae and Rosetta on Comet 67P, and the second of the Curiosity landing on Mars complete with sky crane!


My parents sent me this beautiful book of writing by “new Kiwis” – migrant women in New Zealand – from a workshop run by a friend of mine.


Thank you everyone for sharing the fruits of your creativity with me! (and sorry for the poor photography…)
