Bat(t)s for a birthday

My birthday present from M - an Ashford Drum Carder, along with a whole heap of lovely fibre.
Two of the three bat(t)s I made this afternoon. 85% merino, 15% alpaca/silk blend. (is it 1 or 2 t's in bat(t)s?)

Spinning up the first bat(t )- the colours will go perfectly in my bedroom or if not I have a lovely frock in theses colours that would benefit from a lacy wrap.

This is a lovely gift from a lovely lady - Thank you so much.
I have been spoilt by family and friends alike and want to say thank you to everyone who is making/has made today so special. I've been sung to (thanks Sis), I been taken shopping, been bought lovely things and am being fed my favourite goodies too. I must turn 42 more often.
J bought me a lovely birdwatching book as I am always moaning that I'm not sure what bird is what when we are away and M also got me mini noculars - same reason really, his are pukka ones that require a forklift to look through!
Pretty much a totally spiffing birthday all round.

Um...is that picture...edible? It looks like raspberry sorbet, and I'd really like to eat it.

Happy Birthday (late)!
