It's my birthday and I'll cough if I want to

The upside to bronchitis.. lots of time spent cuddling the kids and finishing off projects, like

... finishing the binding on a simple baby quilt of Michael Miller dots on one side and white quilters muslin on the back quilted in simple diagonal stripes running between every second row of dots


... a knitted Floral Cloche for Bella in Bendigo Mill's Luxury 8ply in Stone with a flower in Bendigo's Melody in Crimson


... and a Chunky Monkey Vest (Ravelry link) for Bella which used a whole single ball of Bendigo's Classic 12ply in Almond


On the weekend we caught up with some friends and my parents for my birthday. Lucky me got a trip to Melbourne from Mum & Dad to see Mary Poppins with extra tickets for Bella & Mum to come too... Bella LOVES airplanes and hotels (hmm wonder where she got that from) so she is so excited about our girls weekend away. Some spending money from Dean & the kids and I'm looking forward to my trip away again in a few weeks! Spoilt, right?

Mum & Dad also gave me this picture they took recently of the kids at their house when they setup my old tent for them to have a play in

how sweet...

Topped off with a Roast Lamb made by Dean and a chocolate cake (made by me, but thats ok, I make nice cakes :-) ) and a family outing for the first time to the movies (Mickey Mouse Choo Choo Express) it's been a pretty good birthday...

The quilt looks wonderful and I love the crocheted hat with the flower. The vest look so nice too, it would be perfect for my daughter to wear one of those too. I hope you enjoy Mary Poppins. My sister is taking my daughter to see it as a surprise for her birthday in August so it should be lots of fun. Hope you feel better soon, bronchitis is never nice.
