Virginia and Angie (Kim won't let me take her picture!)

I had the most awesome birthday! That's because I have the most wonderful friends anybody could ask for. Besides the wonderful birthday wishes that I got, via e-mail, Kim, Angie & Virginia all came to my house (and brought food & WINE!) for an afternoon of fun. We did some spinning, knitting, chatting and, of course, visiting with the SHEEP. Kim gave me the most incredible birthday gift....That's THREE skeins of "Knit Picks" SHADOW yarn in the Sunset colorway! Absolutely beautiful. AND the Peacock Feathers Shawl pattern, from "Fiddlesticks Knitting"...AND a set of "Bryspun" flexible, knitting needles AND a box of Chocolates! Talk about spoiled (me ~ not the chocolate!) She also made the most incredible chocolate cake, with whipped cream frosting, with toffee bits & hot caramel DIE for!!!

My dear friend, Angie also came, bearing gifts. that's 2 oz. of TUSSAH SILK and an ounce of "Firestar" and a package of "Irish bread mix"! Time for me to get carding some wool up! Angie also brought a cake. Yup, TWO CAKES!! As it turned out, Angie's Angelfood cake, with Raspberries & whipped cream, was the perfect finish to a perfect meal. All though, I must confess, I ate too much ;-) Virginia brought cheese & crackers and veggies & dip and wine and wine and wine.... I made up a roast (lamb!) with potatoes and carrots and we really feasted. Cake for breakfast this morning!! And for those who are wondering: No, I did not have a hangover ;-)
Now, I'm off to spend the day with my kids! I wish this weekend could last forever....
