The Birthday Boy

Today is Arthur's first birthday.

I can hardly believe that it's been 12 months since Jenny and James allowed me to share with them birth of this gorgeous little boy. 

How time does seem to fly by as you get older.

I made his cake, don't look too closely at the icing, the cake tasted great but icing is not as easy as you tube makes it look!  I think cake decorating needs a gently touch and I've got a heavy hand, lol
Never mind, it was made with love, and that's what counts.

Jenny had been asking me to knit a rabbit like the one I did for Bonnie, Arthur's is a chocolate bunny

 With a cute pom pom tail, (don't know how long the tail will last though!)

The pattern is a free one, you can find it on Ravelry, it's by Erica Knight

 I also made him a little embroidery
This is one of the DMC kits, I'm not happy with how it's sitting in the hoop so will have another go at fitting it in tighter.  The design is printed on the fabric but I have to say that they are very mean with the fabric, there is very little boarder when you put it in the hoop.
Still, it came out cute.

It's been a very busy week and weekend, we were at my Nephews wedding all day yesterday and I've been at my daughter's for most of the day today, no chance for sitting and resting at all this week!

I'll leave you with some photos of the birthday boy, my favourite is the last one, that sweet face!! :-)

Until next time

Oh, I can hardly believe he is one already! And Maggie--that cake looks spectacular to me--I would have thought a professional made it! I can tell by Arthur's big smile that he love it :)

His bunny and little embroidery are both adorable. Lucky little fellow to have such a talented grandmother!
