Hope you all had a good Easter, I coped with cooking for the multitude , but had to go lay down and rest the back after. I had a lovely surprise and some really sweet cards thanks to those who sent.My friend Jane who has been really having a tough time lately with family and her own health, so pleased you are on the mend now Jane. If you do not know who I am talking about , Jane is Buttons and Stitches who owns Tilly and Oscar the bunnies and Monty the dog. This is what she sent.
As I said not much done in the way of stitching by me to show you this time. Sally must have been despairing of me this last week and the ladies in the parlour. NEXT TIME promise.
I have been mentioning my Dress to Impress grand affair, my much loved Son and Daughter in laws Silver Wedding celebration. Well here as promised are some pics .
Jack eldest grandson and Caitlin posing by their dads car. Of course Jacks girlfriend Katy had to get in on the act.
So we set off Kate drove us and the others went with Iain. The next one was taken as we arrived but I was in the car and Kate was driving. Hence it is a little blurry.
Then onto the entrance hall.
The arrangement you can see in the lopsided table ! Is white orchids , white lilies and it was beautiful.
Of course the main people of the evening were these 2 very special people. Sorry the photo is of them seperate as I could not get them together at the time , so Graeme our son, Kates brother.
His bow tie even had silver speckles in it. And the girl who looked a million dollars. Sue our daughter in law of 25 years.
This is them on their wedding day. A voucher we all had to play on the gaming tables. Yes it was a casino night-why Sue said think James bond.
We were given champagne when we arrived and Graeme did a lovely speech ,even had Sue in tears. He mentioned how they had first met at bakery college ,well on the train there and had done a film to go with it. Lump in the throat job. Then back to the tables .
The lady on the right was bridesmaid with Kate on the couples big day.
Sues mum and dad, the orchids were on the tables and were presented to family and close friends at the end Mine is here on the window sill , hope I do not kill it. They really celebrated their 25 years in style. I did say to my son in law I hope he was taking notes as it is theirs in September.
The dresses were a mix of short and long and some more there than others but everyone looked fantastic and I am sure had a good time. We all felt rather flat and rather lethargic the next day ,we did not get to bed until 1a.m ,not used to that.
Sam and Alfie did not come as it was not a children friendly thing really. Sam though is on crutches as he has broken the growth plate in his foot. Slipped on the stairs, he cannot see the consultant until Wednesday but that is what the hospital said when Kate took him.
So my dears ,sorry it is not much about stitching this time mainly family .I shall leave you with a pic of the 2 grandaughters together.
Will catch up again soon,meanwhile stay safe and just think it will soon be MAY!!!!
love Barb. x
