This year we now have TWO teenagers (and a 3 year old! .... hrumph ... New Years celebrations...) This birthday girl was my birthday present 13 years ago (which means I'll get a year older in 3 months!)
She was the piece of life that helped me look forward to keep on livin' after my mom died. She has kept me on my toes ever since.
Her kindergarten teacher put it well, "Heidi will always be happy" - because she seeks fun - constantly.
What did she want? (thank God her birthday finally CAME...'cause the ideas of "what she wanted" kept coming in - daily!) The first was an apron (shown below) and a chef's hat - the pattern for this will be available soon. (I think she likes the hat - she's had it on all day!)
She also got an original sweater (by me) - a skinny sleeve, cropped cable jacket in cotton and wool - knit with absolutely NO SEAMS.
At the very last minute she wanted some fuzzy socks...so I made those too. I can't believe I got it all done. And baked her a cake, too!
Happy Birthday, darling...ya drive me nuts but I wouldn't have it any other way. MOM
