Belated Birthday Gift

Guess what I got as a belated birthday gift? Yep, the new Tim Holtz bird cage die!!! How exciting! Just had to have a little play this afternoon, and I love, love, love it! I also got a couple of the edge ones but haven't opened them yet and am still hoping for the floral one when it is back in stock! Can see me using this cage die rather a lot ...

Also been enjoying the weather by staying inside in the cool and looking out! My morning dog walk has been lovely the past few days, although I can't get late for any reason or it will be too hot for Ollie who suffers in the heat and puffs his way round the forest even when we choose the shadiest paths to walk along.

I didn't get my cross stitch project started last night although I did get everything ready to do so this evening - the aida fabric is cut ready and all the colours are sorted out - just need to thread the needle and make the first stitch!

Hope you have had a lovely day too.
