Happy Me!

I was thinking today about the giving of quilts and handmade goodies and the love and time commitment that goes behind the gift. So it is with making a meal for someone.
Last night, for my birthday, I had a beautiful dinner cooked for me by my thoughtful YD and her other half. Aside from the buying of ingredients and the time spent in my kitchen {no Raewyns allowed :-)} was the giving up of their day to make this special meal for me.
It was yummy and it was fun!
Oh so good!! Course 2 of about 4!!
Caramelising the top of the Crème Brulee! 
Candles to blow out
Thank you guys - I'm still rolling around feeling full. A lovely dinner and a great evening.
(It was nice to sit and stitch whilst listening to all the kitchen noises!)

A very Happy Birthday to you Raewyn! Loved the stitchery in your previous post - and such beautiful quilting (the next machine I buy will definitely have that pretend hand quilting stitch!)

O, Raewyn, what a lovely gesture of your daughter! The meal looks really nice! But most of all it is sweet. Happy Birthday also, you are looking good on the photo!
Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog, I like making the Mystery, but the blocks are very big, I'm not used to it.
Love, Cisca
