Q: what do you want for your birthday?

Does your mind go blank when you get asked this question?
Mine always does despite the ever growing list in my head.

So here is the current list:
(Not that anybody is ready my blog yet as I've told only one dear friend.)
  • White, turquoise and silver spray paint
  • Washi tape
  • Mollie Makes magazine subscription
  • Chicken wire for a framing project
  • New Shoes
  • Paper straws for kids birthday parties
  • Socks
  • Bakers twine for I don't know what
  • Scrapbook paper so I can do this
Almost all these projects are to make my home beautiful.

PS. This isn't the whole list that would be pages long just the right at the top of my "need" list
(Ok "want" list) at the mo. The thing about birthdays is nobody ever really gets you these things as they have no idea this is what you really, really need (want). Sigh!

Actually I'm lying as my Mum and hubbie have learnt and did ask. So I'm getting this Homestyle magazine so I can lust over this amazing lady's ability to do things around the house and do the thing with the scrapbooking paper.

AND I think I'm getting this limited edition Rotary Cutter supporting breast cancer which I'm going to make quilts with my late Mother-in-Law dresses for her sisters and my daughter. It's so appropriate as my Mother-in-Law died from secondary breast cancer in February this year. I've been missing her a lot. I miss being able to talk to her. I've inherited all of her sewing supplies and material (boxes of it) and I'm going to use it so well in honour of her. It will take me years.

So actually I'm going to be a very happy camper on my birthday. I'm almost counting the days... 9 sleeps.
