Happy Birthday to me

So I can finally reveal the great little video/slideshow that Mary at the quilt show put together for me. I am absolutely thrilled with it, and especially as it came up today. What a birthday present. If you would llike to have a look at it, you can find it here. She did a good job didn't she, and all without actually meeting me. I think their team is getting very good a t connecting with quilters all over the world making full use of the internet and post.

I had been planning on going out today to make sure I didn't end up working. I know if I hang around the house that tends to happen as I get bored when I'm not quilting, but with the tube network largely shut and the weather not looking great we weren't coming up with anything fantastic to do. It turns out my presents held a solution though, I'm going to play Rockband today. We go and visit friends pretty often to play and I love it, but I've been wanting to learn the drums for a while. You can't really do that with the ocassional sessions, but now I have my own set at home I can now learn. It is going to be a tight fit as they need to be in the room my longarm lives in, so we may have to get some shelving in which will make my working life easier too.

However, I've just decided that breakfast might be a good idea, so we will head off to the Ace cafe and make them feed us. I've just been advised on Facebook I should do thinks I shouldn't because I can and well, a large fried breakfast seems like a good starting point.
