Happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me.

Its my birthday! Can you tell?
oh yes, I remember I dropped a heavy hint here.
Well Gill and Sue took up the challenge and they both blew me away with their talent and generosity.

 Gill made me the most beautiful crochet scarf. its made of colourful granny squares in the softest wool. A single line of granny squares with a border of teal.
I don't care how warm the spring is I WILL be wearing my new scarf.
Sue makes alsorts of things but I spotted her beads and pleaded for some.
She gave me a riot of colour.
Each bead was wrapped in a twist of tissue paper and as we all opened them we each found a treasure.

Just look at these.

All shapes and sizes.

All sorts of colours

even a little cake bead

I will stop showing off now.
oh maybe just one more.

I agree, I have been a bit spoilt.

Gorgeous goodies! I wish I had the color sense of the person who crocheted that scarf. Do you think it would be okay if I just copied their color scheme for my own scarf? jan
