A belated shout out for my September birthday celebration…..within these bountiful gifts were some hand-crafted items as well as “bubbly” to enjoy while having another read of the wonderful cards! The most recent gifts were homemade potato soup (delicious) and purple flowers (my favorite color) and a handcrafted pillow. Notice the embroidery on the cat. Many heartfelt thanks to the wonderful friends of the Friday Morning Knitters!

Back to the keyboard with a post celebrating Debra’s birthday…..it was spontaneous meaning she’s just returned from a family vacation in Hawaii and she just might not be here next week which is closer to her birthday. However, without any planning, Connie brought snacks and I had champagne on ice….yeah!

Between sips and tasting we did find time to knit.

Whoops…..thought I had photos of both sides of the table…..it was a full house!

IMG_1061Happy birthday to Jean!! A couple weeks ago the FMKG (Friday Morning Knit Group) was pondering whose birthday was up next. Jean was at this session…but not  a word heard from Jean…I went to the birthday list and shouted out “It’s Jean’s birthday coming up!” Her special day happens between knit work shop sessions….we couldn’t decide this past Friday or the next one….so it’s both. This past Friday was the 1st celebration. Many of us could be there….Kimberly was back from her month in Nantucket….Cameron, Ellen, Patricia, and Rachell were otherwise committed….so some 14 of us gathered to celebrate wonderful Jean. And we knit too! Watch for posting about Debra’s finished baby afghan/blanket.

Connie_BirthdayCards_2014 There was one more birthday celebrated a week ago…..Connie’s. The table was full of knitters and gifts of flowers, jewelry, yarn. Oh….we ate had treats as well. Debra made a chocolate cake……she converted an almost flourless chocolate cake into GF (gluten-free) by substituting a GF flour……the cake, served with whipping cream, was delicious. This was accompanied with cheese and rice crackers brought by Jan. The cheese was so delicious I had to go out and buy some more. There was more….chocolate almonds (Karen H) and, of course, all accompanied with champagne. (I may have missed some food item.)

With all of this going on, we did find time to knit…..there is so much chatter and activity that one is best to work on simpler patterns in workshop.

Happy Birthday Connie…..her birthday is  actually April 20.

I was more than a beat or two off this past Friday…..blame it on a bad sleep night….I didn’t whip out the camera to capture the celebration of the birthday girls at Friday knitting. So…envision Cameron, Karen H, and Janie surrounded by gifts of flowers, jewelry, unique knitting gifts, cards, champagne and a table full of knitting friends. Wait…there were strawberries and chocolate-covered macaroons (gluten-free no less and  you wouldn’t have known if not mentioned). The Friday Birthday Girls….photos from the photo gallery!

More birthdays…..in our Saturday knitting group Katie was the “Birthday Queen.

And there were a couple  one more a few weeks ago……Karen K and Rachelle from Friday group.

My nephew Sam turned 16 yesterday…..it seems just the other that he was a baby….and just the other day that I was 16!! As well as trying to remember the young people in our family’s birthdays, I am on a sewing mission. The last 6 weeks have seen an apron with the theme of hearts and cherries for niece Jade, an apron with a cowboy theme for nephew Carson, a Batman pillowcase (check out Skein Lane’s FB page) for nephew Daniel (a “just because gift” because he is such a Batman “geek”…hey I use to like Batman in college), and now a baseball theme pillowcase for Sam.  With my usual unpossessed self I am now thinking about all kinds of personalized themes for pillow cases and aprons. I am on the outlook for theme-related fabric…..I’ll know it when I see it!

Here is the latest re Sam’s 16th birthday. He is the youngest of “our” second generation. My 4-yr old nephew Carson is the youngest of “our” first generation. Our family certainly crosses a great age span in generations. Two more celebrations are coming up in May….stay tuned!
