October 13 is a special day on the calendar for me. It’s my birthday. It’s also my parent’s anniversary. They got married exactly one year before I was born. I also share my birthday with several dear friends. Happy Birthday Liz, Ashley and Esther! I hope your birthday weekends were as fun as mine.

If that wasn’t enough, October 13 is the workroom’s birthday too! I don’t think I could jam any more wonderful things into one day.

My Tinctory necklace arrived last week and it’s even more precious and delicate in person. I’m so incredibly delighted with subtle colours of the silk and the thread. Thank you, Eva!

p.s. Happy Birthday to Angelune, whose birthday was also this weekend!
