This week has been a week of celebration
as we marked my step fathers 85th and mothers 80th birthdays
the week begin with a family meal at a local restaurant
where they both enjoyed all the families coming together
then on my Mum's birthday I treated her to a vintage afternoon tea
here at Patchwork House
using my newly collected mismatched vintage china
Oh what a delight it was setting the table
with such beautiful cups and saucers
and using the hand embroidered table cloths
that my Mum had made in her youth
at last it was time to give her the blanket I had specially made
has been featured in a previous blog post and you can read about it
Mum is still crocheting every day at the age of 80!
She is a gardener too and so I had created this blanket especially for her
in her favourite colours.
She was very pleased with the gift
and I was very happy to give it to such a good home
where I know it will be appreciated!
