Happy Birthday to me!

May 2, 2006

Today was a great day. Thank you for all of your birthday wishes. I wore my birthday tie-dye, which is a bright tank top that I wear every year on my birthday. Tony made me an awesome dinner and a cake. Look at this cake! This is the first time he ever baked a cake.

Sierra helped with some of the decorations. I don’t know about you, but my first cake looked nothing like this. This is the first time in the 8 years that we have been together that he baked me a birthday cake. He really made today a special day for me.

I finished crocheting a bag. This time I got the straps on in the right spot. I really like the shape of this bag. 

Here it is fulled. I couldn’t get it to felt anymore and the strap is a little too long. I will try to felt it one more time. I made this for a friend, so am hoping that if she doesn’t like the strap she can cut it and then sew it back on so it is a good length for her. It is a belated baby gift and I thought would be a nice diaper bag…or in her case…carry her yarn and some diapers bag. Either way, I hope she likes it. It is from the yarn Deneen sent me and was dyed with easter egg dye. I noticed in the felting process the colors became lighter. This is the first time I have had that happen, but most of my dyeing has been with Kool-Aid, not food coloring. I still like the results.
