Snowy Owl #3

Progress on this design has been fairly quick which is pleasing.
Although I took some stitching away with me to Canberra to do whilst at the conference, I didn't get any spare time so they didn't see daylight! I did have a wonderful conference and have lots of things to look into further for my library.

On Saturday, I had a wonderful surprise of my sister and niece coming down from Queensland for my birthday dinner. It was just a low-key event at the local bistro but it was so nice to have the family together. I got a beautiful Pandora bracelet with a few charms which all have special meanings. It was a lovely night. And to top it off, my husband organised the most fantastic birthday cake. I was so pleased when he showed it to me:
It is books with party-popper streamers everywhere. It is starting to look a little saggy in the picture as it was warm at home and the icing was starting to soften. It was very heavy, but contained beautiful light chocolate mud cake inside - delicious!
Happy Stitching,
