Yesterday was my birthday and what a wonderful day. The day started with lots of cards and presents in bed. Then Chris joined me at Church to see the children take over the service. This was followed by watching my eldest granddaughter perform in a gymnastic competition. The evening was spent at Richard's [son] where he had cooked a really nice meal.

My latest machine embroidery project is the newest design from Anita Goodesign "Prayer Garden". This consists of 94 quilt blocks all made in the hoop. So far I have 14 made, so a long way to go, but I cannot wait to start putting some of the blocks together.

Chris and I went to a performance at the Lighthouse Theatre Kettering to see our eldest granddaughter, Abigail age 8 years, perform. She is an absolute star and performed in four different roles, including a solo spot.
