A wonderful day - so we could celebrate it - a bit belated - in the garden
And now this rose and cinnia arrangement of friend Edith
The birthday rocket is burning (Edith and me)
There were also Watraud and Theresia with lovely gifts
Many roofs - barns for elephants (we made our jokes about it)
starting from left: Sister - brother - sister in law - me - sister in law
missing is the eldest brother because of very serious illness
and the husband of sister who sadly passed away last year
The empty chair - you know of course - its the photographer's one
DH is always present
here preparing 80 candles - who would get 80 candles ....
Last year he made it for himself - now for me
He is special!
One week earlier my patchwork friends were with us for my anniversary
We had so much fun and weather was as fine as the Sunday with the family
A wonderful stuffed bird - my friend Angelika made it
she is making the most wonderful things and offering
them to me
with a table rocket in the middle in pink - how lovely
so sorry no photos - maybe at a later date
And now in France:
I have again time - this UFO will be finished I swear it
- English paper piecing
It is nice to do in the garden - in our French garden
The colours are very strange - but they are as they are....finito!
It was probably in a special mood when I chose the fabrics -
one year ago.
I love everything in this French garden
We will give it up - and sell the house
While stitching in the afternoon I have such lovely sights
The farmhouse in France
