I've kept busy with the crocheting, and recently made a cute baby blanket for a friend who has recently become a very proud grandma. However, I had a bit of a rush job to get the blanket finished as Baby Lily put in a rather early appearance and surprised her mummy and daddy (and all her family!) by appearing 6 weeks early! She gave everyone a few scares but she's doing well and her mum popped into our office with her last week and she is such a little cutie!
I used a lovely corner-to-corner pattern and Stylecraft DK acrylic in scrummy soft pastel shades. It's great for blankets, soft but pretty hard wearing and easily washable! (Very important for baby blankets!)
I hope it comes in useful!
And I've been busy making some cards - and when the certain birthdays have passed I'll share the cards on here! But this was one 'for the box' using some of the rather large stash of scrapbooking papers I've got!
The papers are from K&Co. I've used a Spellbinders edge die, a Sizzix flower die and an LOTV sentiment stamp
Hope you like it!
And thank you for all your good wishes about the wedding. My step-daughter's wedding was a magical event! We all had a wonderful time in a fabulous setting. Dubrovnik is a beautiful city, we had lovely weather, a great group of about 30 family & friends and made some fab memories! They married in the Sponza Palace, we walked down to the harbour (amidst clapping tourists!), had an hour's cruise round the islands, then a lovely reception/party (overlooking the old city) with good food, dancing and lots of laughter!
Lucy & Jon - our happy couple!
The happy couple!
Proud Dad with Lucy
Son Jack with our gorgeous granddaughter Isabella!
What a wonderful setting for the top table!
Our 4 beautiful offspring!
Relaxing on the boat - a beautiful part of the day!
Thanks for lasting through a rather long & rambling post - and apologies for all the pics! Hope you liked them!
And I promise to be back soon!
