It was my birthday last week. I had a lovely day, and lots of fantastic gifts.
Simon bought us tickets to the the Cirque du Soleil 'Corteo' show, which was AMAZING. If you get the chance, you should definitely go to see it. I can't recommend it highly enough! The acrobats were brilliant, and the costumes..... Oh my goodness!!! It got me wondering how complicated it would be to make a career change - from teacher to trapeze artist. How long would the training take???
Unfortunately, I couldn't take any photos of the show. So, instead I thought I'd show you some pics of my the crafty pressies I received.....
Firstly, look at this cute box for my knitting needles:
I LOVE it so!!! I love the little old nanny's outfit. I think I need a knitting outfit just like it!
And look what was inside it:
Aren't they the cutest needles EVER? Who cares what they knit like - they have red and green toadstool tops!!! Crafty friends always know JUST what will make us jump up and down with excitement when we tear off the gift-wrap, don't they?!?
Simon got me this:
It was on my 'wish list'. It's a kit for making mini mobiles, which I thought would look good in my little crafting room. If you haven't heard of the make before, check out djeco stuff. It's for kids, but I think lots of you may well fall in love with it too!
This was also on my crafty wish-list:
I remember this from when I was little and, when I accidentally stumbled upon it while I was searching on Amazon, I thought it would be a fun book to have in my crafting library.
So, look out for future knitting projects, teeny-tiny mobiles and pictures made from cut-up circles of paper in future posts.....
Happy weekend to you all, my lovely bloggy friends!
