FNWF and a Birthday.


FNWF organised by the lovely Cheryll.
started out quite well, my blocks were sorted and set out for sewing but as usual things don't always go according to plan. 
I didn't get as many done as I wanted but 4 isn't too bad, I was aiming for 6 plus a little bit of stitchery.



My excuse is.......

Corinne and Kenny are living with us for a while..... well they are in the fully self contained granny flat which has an adjoining door, we do get  lots and lots of visits which I love really ..... shhhhh don't tell them that though, they might never go......lol.
It was Kenny's 23rd birthday yesterday, they did go out with friends and when they arrived home after tea we all had birthday cake and very yummy it was too.
 Kenny wants a dog but until they have their own place its not practical so Corinne thought a dog cake  might do the job but it did seem odd cutting and eating the poor thing.



I'm off now to blog hop and see what other ladies were up to last night.

Great blocks Helen. The best laid plans. I do that all the time, then one of the kids ring up and the plans change. All good though, I love having them visit. Love the dog cake. Hugs.....
