You made my day

Thank you all so much for your sweet birthday wishes. They made me smile, each and every one.
I had a great day, complete with lots of taco eating, and a big chocolate ice cream cone with my family.
Lots of birthday loot too.
Everything I got this year was a handmade gift, or material to make something. I got a beautiful bouquet of sunflowers too.

Oh the yarn! With the rust silky wool, I am making this, and the delicious green, will hopefully turn into this.....
Guess what I am off to do?
