Happy Birthday Sweet 16!!!!!

Hi Everyone, 

Today is my Toms 16th Birthday!!! Yickes where did those years go????? 

He was off camping in nearby woods last night with his friend Ben who was 16 on Saturday. They are trying to pretend they are on their summer break that was cancelled this year due to covid. Boooo!!! Thankfully they are now booked in for next summer so they will be old hands at the camping outdoors then when they go to the Outward Bound Trust.

Now those who follow my blog will know that Tom is a HUGE Doctor Who fan. I did a cross stitch card for him last year (On this post)  and also bough this one then too so have made it for this year. It doesn't have any birthday wording on the outside as it will be framed and popped on his wall.  This year I make it with plenty of time to spare. Last year I was running way behind and only finished his card the night before!!! 

I got the pattern from this Etsy Store. 
Heres a wee throwback of a tiny Tom with me just a fortnight old!!! Hes now 6 foot!!! 

Enjoy the week,

Love and Sparkles,

Hazel xx

They of have that habit of going up and up and overtaking us, two of mine are well over 6' and dwarf me with a pat on the head!

Super needlework with the Tardis image, I'm sure Tom will love it. Many thanks for sharing with us at Allsorts 'Masculine' theme.
