Sunny Stripe WIP

My sister's blanket has been on hold while I was waiting for more wool, so that I could continue further with it. The parcel arrived on the day of my birthday, which made it a delightful unexpected present! This means that my main activities have been crocheting Sunny Stripe and reading my kindle. It is amazing to be able to do my two favourite hobbies at once, and I will never tire of making the blanket!
Speaking of books, I would like to know what your favourite book/author/genre is, as I find it interesting knowing what kind of books people find appealing. I have read a lot of books, however I have realised a majority of my recent reads have been paranormal/dark fantasy. Which has led me to ask others for suggestions in different genres, and my lovely sister has recommended a few classic novels to read!
Also, I want to say thank you to the people for my birthday wishes at the weekend as it really made my day when I got to read your comments to my birthday post.

Happy Birthday To Me!

Just a little post to celebrate my 25 years of living so far! It is the one time of year that makes me reflect back on my previous years, and where I have come to now!
Although I am really excited that I finally got one of these, a kindle, as I have been wanting one for a while now.  Not that I have had the chance to read it so far as my weekend is being very busy!!
I also bought myself the turquoise blue spotty dress as a birthday treat as well, I really know how to spoil myself don't I? I loved both colours that much that my fiancé's brother is buying me the red spotty one!! I don't usually go for dresses like these as I am very hippy and all bum, in a good way but I prefer to hide my hips and bum underneath a 50's tea party styled dress usually.
I also celebrated last night, pre-birthday session with lovely cocktails and a japanese meal! I got a big cocktail from TGI Fridays, it was called a Gremlin and it tasted like fruity sherbet! Yummy!
Today my Dad is visiting my house for the afternoon, and he is bring my sister Mary-Anne, her fiancĂ© Alan and my newest wee nephew Zak! Tonight I am going out with Andy's family for some birthday drinks (where I get to wear my red spotty dress!). Tomorrow I am meeting up with my sister Lisa, and she is taking me for a proper tea lunch at a place called Butterfly and the Pig...they do amazing High Afternoon Teas!! 

I am definitely really having a good birthday weekend and its barely even started :D

Square a Week - 7 & 8

Week 7 'Square'
 Thinking of re-doing my week 7 square as it turned out rather diagonal shaped, and blocking didn't seem to help it much either.

Week 8 Square
 I seen this pattern in my little book and I was fascinated to try it.

February Mosaic

 It's been a rather busy month for me!
