It was my 32nd birthday yesterday. Scary how quickly that year has gone! Getting a year older never seems to bother me too much, though I will admit to a momentary flash of anxiety that I would suddenly have to be a proper grown up when I turned 30!
As you can see, my husband and children chose a very delicious chocolate birthday cake, in spite of my little boy's insistence that he wanted a Thomas the Tank cake! I had a lovely day, with cards, presents and the children on extra special best behaviour. All in all it's been a great birthday!
Later in the afternoon I had a most exciting bonus birthday surprise in an email from Sew Mama Sew to say that my napkin set tutorial had been chosen as one of the winners in their Tutorial Contest. I was so thrilled about this - I've never won anything like this before! Thanks very much for all the lovely comments. The Sew Mama Sew blog has links to all the winning tutorials, as well as all the other entries, with lots of fantastic ideas for things to sew, so it's well worth having a look. Now I have a $25 gift certificate in my pocket and I'm looking forward to spending some money on some of the gorgeous fabrics in the Sew, Mama, Sew shop!
I'm thinking some kind of small blog giveaway would be in order as I've just had a birthday and a competition win. Of course, I haven't been organised enough yet to think of what I'll give away, so it will have to wait until my next post! Watch this space!
