I know - I shouldn't join in if there is nothing on my desk, but I just thought you would all like a little wedding update instead!
So here are few pics - only my snapshots - the photographer in the family is away and didn't have time to process his straight away so I am waiting excitedly until he returns!!
We had the most perfect of days - the sun shone all day in an almost Mediterranean blue sky.
The setting in Snowdonia was perfect.
So here you are - just a tiny flavour of a lovely day....
More pics when the bride and groom return from honeymoon.
I think she will like to see them first!
This is the rainbow that greeted me on Monday afternoon - it certainly made me smile!
I hope it does the same for you too.
Now, you may remember two weeks ago I had a cheeky pheasant peeking through my kitchen door.
Then last week she was sitting on my hedge peeping at me again.
Well look carefully below......
This is what G found when he was raking leaves in our flower border beside the front drive.
A nest made of dry leaves with 5 beige eggs inside.
I think they must belong to the nosey pheasant.
They were cold so we assumed she had left them.
A few minutes later we saw Mr Pheasant proudly strutting across the lawn.
And then after lunch G noticed the female was sitting on her nest!
Can you see her speckled feathers in the middle of this pic?
I shall be watching closely to see what happens.
I know they are silly birds and doubt the eggs will hatch - it's such an open "public" spot.
Watch this space.
I am sure Annie will have more smiles for you over on her blog today so pop over to "A stitch in time"
and join in the fun.
Happy Wednesday everyone and an especially happy day to Annie and her hubby for their wedding anniversary. Below is the little card that I made for them.
I used snippets of vintage embroidered linen, lace, buttons and beads.
It doesn't seem long since their happy wedding day when my little one was toddling round in a little smocked dress and pink coat. This week that little one will be a beautiful bride herself - where have all those years gone?!
As you see, my table - above - is back to normal and my lace box is overflowing onto it.
I have been making little card toppers or maybe ATCs using snippets.
I have a spare day next week so I will try and make a little bundle of ATCs ready for the WOYWW 4th anniversary swap. Follow this link for Julia's info.
OK folks - busy week this week so I will dash.
I might not get round all your desks this week but will do my best.
If you are following my Friday Pheasant saga - pop back next Friday for the follow up - it's amazing!!!
Thanks for calling.
Check this nosey visitor on my doorstep- she kept peeking in through my kitchen door yesterday.
I was busy at my table facing the door and noticed this female pheasant. She seemed to be peeping in at me and was there for ages. I think she could see her relection and probably thought she had a competitor for the handsome male pheasant that frequents our garden.
I love my garden birds.
For those of you who popped into my WOYWW post....
I did it!!! As I mentioned, I was just shortening M's dress and was a bit anxious to get it right.
Anyway, with a bit of practice and a steady hand on the machine, I think I have mastered it.
I was going to post a pic but decided not to - what a tease!
I just hope it's right when she tries it on again.
Thanks for calling.
If you want a real giggle today, then pop over to see Annie's post on "A Stitch in time".
I think the term "in the groove" is what we oldies would have called it.!!!
The evening sun was streaming through my window so I snapped a quick pic of the mayhem on my table....
half made dollies - some in the box and some on the window sill
an idea for a pretty pincuchion made from crazy quilting
wool waiting to made into dollies hair
scraps of sheer fabric with my practice - tiny hems - ready for when I tackle the wedding dress. It's ages since I have done any very fine sewing - I felt I needed to practice before I launched into the real thing!! Of course my very clever little seamstress sister was on hand with excellent advice so I am sure all will be well when I get round to doing it. Max came over on Monday and we had a trying on session. She will make a beautiful bride I am sure.
PS - only shortening the dress - not making it from scratch!!!!
Do have a good snoop and then join in the blog hop fun over with the lovely Julia at her Stamping Ground.
OK folks - I am off to tackle the frock - I may be gone for some time!!
