I knwo this is turning into a shopping blog (I'm sure there must be such a genre) rather than a crafting blog, but this should be the last fabulous package for a while.
Today my custom made doiley arrived, ready for Annabelle's impending birthday. (I had no expectations of the doiley arriving this quickly (it had to be crocheted first! and then travel the world!) but here it is, so it will be added to the birthday bounty.)
I highly recommend this Etsy mother and daughter team, Crochetingbyrose - it's such a special gift... and I figure daggy enough to be classic, as my darling daughter's life progresses.
Other birthday business is underway - buying balloons, lollies to decorate the cake, and the all-important birthday dress. I like this tradition, and we follow it with Lucas too (in his case the birthday outfit.)
It's time to make a list of birthday preparations.
It's also time to make a list of my crafty commitments - I'm feeling a touch overwhelmed right now, so some planning time is definitely needed.
Mum was slightly bemused when I said I couldn't help much with her Dad's birthday party, because I would be too busy knitting in the Tour de France KAL.
