A Little Maggik in our lives.

I would like to introduce a new blog which has arrived in the blogisphere this morning. Its very young and I am expecting great things from Margaret. I know she would welcome a comment or two to get her started.
Talking of comments, I have never had so many 'Happy Birthdays', thank you all so much. I suppose I fished for them by announcing it but I didn't mean to, it was more in the way of news really. And the 'This is ' game.
I am working on something at the moment that is not coming along very well so here isn't a picture of it, this is just an old bit I did last year on a book cover. Its already been on flickr and now I'm 57 I can't be expected to remember if its been blogged before so I apologise if you're sick of the sight of it.
Even though Margaret gave me a lovely lunch, scones, and strawberries, she still presented me with these delicious palest pink roses for helping her with the blog.
A touch of Magic.

Oh, I've just checked your blog and seen this. You are the kindest, most generous person. I wondered how all these lovely people found me so quickly - now I know. Thank you so much! I feel like I belong to blogland now. Can't tell you how good it feels. But I need you to tell me how to respond to their kindness?

Gorgeous roses, and I hadn't seen your old bit before (that sounds so wrong!)

I'm off to check out your friend Margaret now - I hope she's decent!

Hi and thanks for the comment. My "funky" quilt looks very amatureish (is that a word?) compared to your beautiful work.

Love the "old bit"! The roses are so beautiful too and that pale pink close to the rich orange in the "old bit" looks really gorgeous!
