Kelly's Growth Chart - Delivered.

Today I took Kelly her "first birthday present" - the growth chart over which I laboured a few months ago.
Having been to the Zoo on the actual day of her birthday, she seemed to recognise all the animals and a smile of utter delight crept across her face as she pointed out all the animals, including the "flutterby",  
Satisfaction level on a scale of one to ten?   About twenty five, I should say.   For both Kelly and me.
Tonight I am back to the needles without eyes in an effort to finish the left front, all the while listening to this audio book.  Both the HD3QEM and I are enjoying this.   If you've ever read and enjoyed The Shell Seekers by Rosamund Pilcher, you will love this one too.   I wish Jan Minshull had written others, but apparently she now runs a hotel in The Lakes district.   I have added both the name of the hotel and the coast to coast walk to my "plan-of-things-to-do-on-the-great-adventure-to-the-UK" note book in which I keep the ever growing list.
Have a good night everyone.


  1. Aww she is looking so happy with her gift
    Happy birthday to her xx
    Truly a lovely gift
    Hugs xx

  2. I'm sure she was delighted to recieve the growth chart and it will be something for her to treasure always!

  3. If you like Rosamund Pilcher you will have to come and visit us when you come to the UK.

    Scenes from many of her televised books have been shot in our area.

  4. How satisfying to see that smiling little face, it makes it worth stitching something that I know is not really enjoyable for you.

  5. She looks very happy with her gift :-)

  6. A very special gift Margaret.
