On his 40th Birthday !!!! :))))

Hi ! Hope you all had a nice weekend !!

I was quite busy last week making something special for my two admirers at home - my hubby Raj and my daughter Anshita . Raj's Birthday was on 29th Nov. and Anshita's on 1st Dec.

Raj has turned 40 so I decided to make something cute and quirky for him ;) I usually make something crafty for him in addition to the regular gift(s) . This year, I made 'Forty Gifts' for him !! Since I am crochet-centric these days so the gifts would definitely have a touch of crochet ! :) After a bit of creative scratching , I poured in my ideas into these little gifts .

I served him morning tea in 'Forty Cups (Four Teacups)' made of crochet ! ;)

While getting ready for office , I asked him to choose a new shirt out of  Forty Shirts (Four T-Shirts) that I crocheted for him !! :))

Raj doesn't know swimming, neither do I ; so I planned to give him something like 'fancy fins' which might help him to swim . I made a whole set of  'Forty Fins (Four Tiffins)' for him :))))

He was very happy to receive those ! :)) I have to go with him to buy him a B’day gift , may be , some electronics item or latest style specs ; I do not have any expertise in shopping those .

On Anshita's B’day, we took her friends out for lunch and then back home we had cut the cake and played some games . We were running a bit late ferrying kids back home from the restaurant so could manage only few pictures . Anshita lost one more tooth a day before her B’day ; has become a camera shy person and tries to hide her ear-to-ear toothless smiles ! :) Her B'day gift was ordered online and is still pending for delivery . She got many gifts from her friends and a nice dress from her neighbour sister ! :)


 
Who blinks first challenge !!
 
Every year all the kids hover around me while I make pieces of cake, claiming for the piece with a rose. So this time we ordered a cake full of roses!!:)


All turned well and happy . Hope you liked my idea of 'forty gifts’, I mean 'four T- gifts'!! :))

These all are my own hit-and-trial patterns and can be used as embellishments . All the items measure in the range of 3 to 5 inches and are crocheted in Anchor knitting cotton with 3.00 mm hook . I have written a rough pattern and will soon share with you all once I finalize .

Have a happy week ahead !!

Preeti :)
