Birthday Celebrations

I can finally reveal a bit of secret stitching I've had on the go over the past few weeks - some gifts for Kath's birthday on Monday.

This is Laura's Embroideries by Craft-Corner Collections, a design I've liked for quite some time and I thought it would be just perfect for Kath.

I think I'll restitch this one for myself sometime :)
For many years now, Kath and I have exchanged an ornament every Christmas so I decided to give Kath her one with her birthday pressies.

Peace to All - Homespun Elegance

For Kath's birthday dinner I made lasagane, a salad and coleslaw - just perfect for a warm summery evening. We also had a few glasses of bubbly wine. Then came dessert, made by Kath. Doesn't it look delicious.............

Pavlova with strawberries, blueberries and cream! Yum yum!

Here we are, a bit hot and flustered, lol.

What a lovely time we had celebrating Kath's special day.

Enjoy the rest of your week!

Nice stitching Katrina! Love the pav that Kath made too. Did she tell you we spoke on the phone the other week for more than an hour? LOL.

That pav does look divine.
Seasonals! Like you, I can't wait for my 3 weeks off, LOL

Beautiful stitching Katrina. I absolutely love that ornament and your finishing is so perfect. Both pieces look fantastic. It looks like you had a wonderful time and that cake looks scrumptious.

I love the colors you used for the Mary Garry piece, very pretty. The ornament is so nice too and the cake looks beyond yummy.
