Thanks everyone for the lovely comments on Petal. They are muchley appreciated!! :o)

I had a lovely birthday too. Andy bought me a new bike, which was unexpected indeed, though he's a keen cyclist and just wants to share cycling trips with me :o) We don't pick it up until this weekend and unfortunately it isn't in pink as I had requested, but a groovey chrome one instead. I also have to wear my new cycle helmet which is going to flatten my hair to smithereens, but I guess its a necessary evil on the roads these days. Its been about 10 years since I rode a bike, I had a minor accident & haven't got on one since, so I will probably be a little nervous the first few times. Andy also bought me some little knick knacks & took me out for a delicious meal and we also went to see a comidienne in the evening who was very funny indeed ;o) My friend Gill made some lovely stitching accessories for me - a needle case and stitching bag in my fave autumnal colours - thank you so much Gill!! :o) She also bought me the new Passione Ricamo chart which I can't wait to start and some lovely threads too. I got vouchers from everyone else & went on a shopping spree yesterday to get some new clothes - since I met Andy I've lost nearly 2 stones, so alot of my clothes don't fit anymore! So I managed to get some nice new things.

I've been very naughty again and have been neglecting my Frederick & instead have carried on with Celtic Spring! I so love the colours in this design & watching the folds in the dress appear is such a testament to MLI's beautiful designing talents.

I've decided not to go for the job I told you about in my previous blog entry - we drove over for a reccy on Saturday & its much further than I thought, plus transport links aren't very close so I would probably have to use my car. I shall continue looking, but am not going to rush into anything as I really do love my current job so it would have to be something just right for me to leave.

We're off to see the new Wallace & Gromit film - The Curse of the WereRabbit this weekend & I can't wait to see it!!! I love the short films The Wrong Trousers and A Close Shave so I have high expectations for it. I'll let you know what it's like! ;o)

Sam, Petal looks lovely, well done on the finish and the conversion. I am sure you will love using the bike, it's great to get out on them!
