September and October are the main birthday months in our family. 4 in September and 4 in October. Last week it was my birthday.
Gorgeous Man baked a very delicious Lemon Cranberry Cake with a lemon glaze.
One thing about living in PNG is that you need to be organised when it comes to birthday gifts because there is not much to buy here. Gorgeous Man secretly ordered some fibre from some Australian etsy vendors, had it sent to his sister’s house and picked it up last time we were in Australia.
This is Polwarth fibre. I’ve been wanting to try new fibres this year and this is one I haven’t spun before.
This next one is Corridale, another new-to-me fibre.
My paper-crafting mojo is still hanging around, with another two pages completed.

Gorgeous Girl also did some scrapping with me. I just give her the supplies and let her go for it. We’ve run out of pages in the 8″ x 8″ album she uses, so we’ve switched to A4 size and I’ll dig out some page protectors and a file for her to keep her stuff in.
And my knitting mojo is slowing creeping into view. I finished off this little cardigan for charity.
