Happy Valentines Day everyone.. xxx

This is what was sat waiting for me when I arrived back at the house from a stressful shopping trip in Sainsburys... Ray had given me a card this morning but this beautiful red rose was a really lovely surprise. :-)


I love Valentines Day now that I know I'll have someone to spend it with every year... I used to dread it slightly before Ray and I were together!
 

He was up baking yesterday morning at 7am to bake me this cake. It's very multi-coloured! Hundreds and thousands anyone!? The sponge is delicious though, much better than my Victoria sandwich!


I've spent the last couple of evenings organising all of my embroidery threads. They were all stuffed into various containers and so I couldn't actually see what I had to work with!


I bought this organiser box months and months ago but never actually go around to sorting them out. It's taken bl**dy hours though! Strangely it's quite therapeutic though...


A pair of pink booties finished and ready to go in my shop, I just need to get on and finish the other things that I have half done at the moment...


I nearly forgot to take a photo before but I thought I would show you what my lovely friend made for Rose's birthday present. Isn't this little felt gnome gorgeous!? (I don't know what I should be calling it...)


She lives a couple of doors away and we now have a regular cup of tea and a catch-up but she's just told me they're having to more which is realllyy annoying! Not too far which is a relief but it was so lovely to have a really good friend that only lived two doors away... :-(


Rose is having a rather late afternoon nap at the moment, so I'm going to make the most of it and get on with  Mum's birthday present.

  7. Your husband is a star, what a beautiful rose and that cake !! My poor husbands still at work, but he did make a cake at the weekend for us.
    Your threads look great, I should get one of those. Mine are all in an apple shop plastic bag!!! Not ideal when you need to see if I've got a colour. Have a great evening

    My daughter got similar ones for Christmas, that came in a handmade gnome house,, with a handpainted sign that said "Gnome, sweet Gnome"

  12. What a gorgeous cake, lovely Ray!!! I can almost smell that rose from here, I love that scent of a freshly cut rose. My fave.
    Glad you had a nice couple of evenings doing some sorting, quite therapeutic isn't it?!
    LOVE the booties, such a pretty colour and I think that gnome is lush, very mystical.

  13. What a sweetie your husband is baking you a cake at the crack of dawn! The hundreds and thousands made me giggle but it's a lovely thought :) And I am in complete heaven looking at your neatly organsied thread box. I aim to get all my supplies looking like that but cos I use them everyday it all goes downhill fairly quickly! Hope you can keep them in such pristine condition! Have a lovely rest of your week xxx

  16. Love is in the air.... How lovely, we decided to 'forget' valentines day this year as we have all been really poorly and my 2 little boys have been so ill and we are starting to get ready to move. Its nice to see romance isn't dead :-)

    Oh and where is the storage bog from.... really need to get mine organised and that looks perfect!
