I received a Birthday visit from Josiekitten this morning and decided to make some hidden strawberry cupcakes. Yes, they have a strawberry hidden inside, as well as one popped on top! Delish! They weren't quite ready when it was time to leave, but a couple were swiftly bagged to take away; minus the buttercream, as that didn't appear until Mr Snoops made a request!
We made do with some freshly made fruit scones instead.
She came laden with birthday gifts and I was thoroughly spoilt.
First up was a beautiful 'Three Bags Full' sweater bag. It's such a pretty fabric.
Next were three beautiful skeins....
From the top, is a skein of Tough Sock, from ' The Uncommon Thread', in colourway Leaded (80% superwash Blue Faced Leicester 20% nylon), then some SokkusuX from Whimzy ( formerly Soctopus) in colourway Poseidon ( 70% superwash merino, 20% cashmere 10% nylon) and lastly merino silk sport from 'Skein' in colour way Blue Wren ( 50% merino and 50% silk). Absolutely beautiful skeins!
Finally, look what else there was! Two Lo-Lo Bars. Hooray!!! They smell divine.
So, all in all it's been a fabulous weekend....... sunshine and birthday curry on Friday, sunshine, knitting and tennis yesterday and today.......... well, sunshine, Murray, cakes and a visit from one of my favourite people. What more could a girl want!
I'll leave with a floral finale; beautiful roses from our garden I'm so sorry that I can't share their beautiful scent with you!
Then birthday flowers........
Fingers crossed for a sun-filled week! Enjoy!
