Sun, sea and a birthday...

We have just been away, to Menorca, for a wonderful week of sun and sea. We went with some good friends and were able to really relax while the girls spent most of their time in the pool or at the beach. While we were there, Miss PatchyRose celebrated her 8th birthday, which was a very special way to do so! Some presents came with us, but others were opened the day before we left. Fortunately a few key people have picked up on the fact that she now feels this blog is a joint venture ;-)

One set of godparents gave her this beautiful sewing box, and some other close friends provided the contents...

Her grandparents sent this lovely book, which has lots of great ideas and projects for us to have a go at.

It was good to have a week away from it all, but it will also be nice to get back to some sewing in the next few days.


  1. I thought of Miss PatchyRose on her birthday. It's so lovely that she is growing into sharing your interest.

  2. Muchas felicidades a la señorita PatchyRose, seguro que está muy contenta con sus regalos y feliz de haber disfrutado del sol y del agua con buen clima.
    Y despues de vacaciones espero ver vuestras costuras.
    Besos para ambas.

  3. Belated Birthday Wishes to Miss Patchy-Rose. How nice to have a sewing companion to share your creative spirit with, Fran!
