Happy Birthday

What a windy morning but the sun is shining and it's dry.  I'm off to meet my friend this afternoon for coffee and a rummage round the bead shop.  I've been making the Kumihimo bracelets for the school fayre but made some other ones yesterday and need more supplies as I got the thumbs up from my granddaughter and her friend.  


While watching Scott & Bailey last night I knitted up another bag but I've not done the finishing off yet so will let you see it when I'm done. Yesterday I posted off the 10 little cardis and 2 blankets I knitted for the mum to be of twins.  The, can't contain herself grandma to be (my friend from Spain), arrived to be with her daughter yesterday.  The twins will be arriving on Sunday and as we don't know if it's boys, girls or one of each everyone is waiting with baited breath. I'll keep you posted!

Right, onto the reason I came here, my card for today!

Take care if you're out in the wind and I'll see you soon.  I don't know if I'll make it onto the blog tomorrow as I'm taking my aunt to Dalkeith.  The craft place I get my card etc is there and I'm in dire need of supplies.  As always there's a lovely restaurant nearby so that's our plans for Friday.
