My mum was quite a fashion guru in her time!
(I just love that hat!)
She married dad!
And then I came along!
She wanted to celebrate her 90th birthday, quietly!
So we just bought her a couple of balloons!
And made her an album, filled it with lots of photos, new and old!
When she looked through it for the first time there were lots of oohs and aahs.
Some made her sad and lots made her laugh.
The photos on the front and back of the album were taken sometime in the 80's.
Would you believe my dad, even now, still has a full head of hair!
Yesterday, my family all came together to celebrate. We all sat out in the garden, (yes it was warm and dry here) enjoyed a bbq feast, followed by strawberries and cream and her great grandchildren helped her to blow out the candles on her 9 0 birthday cake.
Unfortunately we have no picture of the cake because whoever was holding the camera was on a wobble!
Tasted good though!
Today, we are having a quiet day ourselves.
I've crocheted my mandela wheel, which in the week will be posted to Lucy for Yarndale.
I have put the ties on this little bonnet which has been sitting on a chair waiting to be finished for about 2 weeks and looking at this photo i'm still not happy with the ties and they will be altered!
I've also finished this pair of socks which I shall be wearing with my walking boots on holiday in Austria.
(I wish I could find a better was of photographing socks, whatever I seem to do they always look quite strange!)
And what has my husband been doing while I've been busy?
Well, he is in the garage building this strong back which is part of the mold for making a stony lake canadian canoe.
See, I knew my garage would never have a car in it!
