The keen-eyed among you may have noticed that I've had to update my Profile. Yes, another birthday has been and gone. Another year older, but am I wiser as I'm supposed to be?
Probably not. To be wiser after the event is scary. I'd rather not have an Event to be wiser after! Any regrets for the past year? Happily I can say 'no'. I like to live life without regrets and when I make a decision I try very hard not to go back over it and pull it to pieces. The choice has been made, why grieve over it? That's just me.
But look what a lucky girl I am - this book came in the post as one of my birthday presents.
I've been taking this off the display every time I've set foot in a bookshop lately (and I love bookshops) but I've reverently placed it back on the shelf as I thought it was an Extravagance and not an Essential. How lovely then to be given it as an unexpected surprise.
Now of course I need to decide which flower to make first!
You can also see the Ripple Blanket coming along nicely - just under half-way - and not bored with it at all. Perhaps getting older and wiser means I'll stay with a project to the end?
