A very satisfying finish!
We are all sorted I think!!!! Such a lot to think of plus we have to have clothes for the whole weekend as we are all meeting up on Saturday and possibly Sunday.
Its not a very good photograph but when I used my flash I kept getting the reflected flash in the glass, so this was taken in our conservatory, The frame is from Genesis frames and I would recommend them as there was everything you needed to frame your work, including the backing, so I think a good bargain.
I just have to sew some new feathers on to my hat to match my outfit which I had made for my own wedding back in 2006, it is a proper wedding hat, very big! I am looking forward to the whole weekend.
I didn't really enjoy the wedding we went to two weekends ago, we had to stand around in the hot sun for three hours between the short ceremony and the meal, which was awful. Meeting my DH family was awful too, thank goodness we don't have anything to do with them, as I wouldn't want to meet them again. It was a relief to escape!
Simon and Tracy have tried so hard to make this a good day for every one and the food has been discussed with us as being suitable plus all the extras they have planned, no expense has been spared. There is to be cups of tea and cake later in the afternoon and they have scoured charity shops for sets of delicate tea cups and saucers with matching plates and taken all we have as well. They are determined to make it a good day for everyone.
And this is my progress on my houses, called 'Golden Gate Avenue.' I love this more than anything I have stitched for an age. I just so love it I could stitch all day and all night (and I do if I can!)
