Anyway, last weekend I went home for my mum's birthday and she LOVED the blanket I made, which was a big relief, and she appreciated all the hard work I put into it. I bought her a cook book as well at the last minute and she thought that was really good too.
As well as the blanket I made her this card. I think I may have had a little too much sugar when I did the front though, but I still think it looks kind of cool.
I got the instructions for the cake and candles from here, and there are a number of other designs too.
