Back to the stash! This is just a selection of what arrived on/before my Birthday. The Just Nan is from the large boy, he chose it from my Wishlist on SewandSo's website, great idea, I select half adozen charts I'd like and he chooses one so I still get a surprise.
The charms are the small boy from an Ebay company called Ang's Attic, only 99p to £1.39 for a bag of 10. Now there was some confusion here as some of the bags are mixed (the nautical and Christmas ones) and some said you could choose from a selection. I picked and chose thinking I was getting 2 witches, 2 crows, 2 pumkins etc when actually I was getting 2 PACKS of each! Luckily Ang was very understanding and deleted the extra packages for me, refunding the money. It does mean I have rather alot of Hallowe'en charms so will be popping some into any stitching parcels I send out!
The books are from my brother, apparently werewolves are the new vampires. He also gave me the Twilight plasters (band-aid to Americans), the way to wear them is on your neck to suggest you have been nibbled by a vampire!
My parents are paying for Bluebeard's Mermaid to be framed, so my brother chose mermaid themed wrapping paper for his presents, he cuts the tags out from the paper itself so they co-ordinate. The paper is too lovely to throw away!
Here is my cake, it is a fruit cake with hard icing and marzipan, my favourite cake. We used food-colouring pens to write on the cake. The large boy decided we should use all my names and did the writing for me (except "daughter" and "sister" which I did). The red splodges are icing sugar which I put too much food-colouring in, it looked great and tasted vile, glad we didn't do the whole cake!
I also have some fabric on order from Sparklies' sale which will hopefully arrive soon. Hubby is paying for the frames for my Just Nan Seasons and also anything random I added to the credit card in September!
I almost forgot to add some stitching pics (blush):
And finally, this week's random question (no prize!) is :
