KATE'S WEDDING 30 APRIL 2016

This BLOG post has been a long time coming so before 2016 ends I want to BLOG about our daughter's Wedding, just warning you this post will be photo heavy.........

It was the Wedding of the year, Kate organised 90% of her Wedding, she likes to be in control, like her Mother !!! LOL..... I had to practically beg her to give me some things to organise.... Kate was the happiest bride I have ever seen, absolutley nothing fazed her on the day.  The week leading up to the Wedding we had LOTS of rain, the morning of the Wedding we had heavy down pours but we all remained happy.  The Wedding ceremoney was in a Chapel so we knew we wouldn't get wet.  The rain stopped for us to have photos before the ceremony and for everyone to enter the Chapel.  During the ceremony it poured down and looked and sounded so beautiful, to me it was a sign of our loved ones in Heaven raining tears of joy.....  Then after the ceremony the rain stopped for them to have the most beautiful photos taken.......  Kate and Josh started dating when Kate was in Grade 12, she was just 17 and Josh was 21, now 11 years later they have become husband and wife so NOTHING was going to spoil the day.........

Kate having her hair done and enjoying a champagne.  Kate doesn't drink champagne, this is the first time ever I have seen Kate drink champagne.....



Kate always has this most beautiful smile on her face and her Wedding day was so exception.


Kate and I ready for the big day.

SECRET SANTA SWAP 2016

Here are the photos of the wonderful gorgerous gifts I received from Sandi for the Secret Santa Swap 2016 organised by Cheryll


This is a lovely block keeper .....


How lovely is this hanging of a Penguin Christmas stitchery ....


A lovely zippered pouch with embroidery threads, sewing thread and ribbons.


A gorgeous Nutcracker fabric tote bag ....


I mentioned to Sandi I would love a new pin cushion, how cute is this, I don't know if I can bear to put pins in it though as it's so cute. 


Two lovely tree ornaments...


Thank you so much Sandi for all of my gorgeous gifts.  Thank you Cheryll for organising the swap.

MY VINTAGE KITCHEN

My Vintage Kitchen was a 2015 BOM by Jenny of ELEFANTZ.. I managed to stitch each block last year however I only sewed it all together recently.  This is my "My Vintage Kitchen" completed.



I just love it hanging in my kitchen. I replaced it this morning for the next few weeks with this lovely
mini quilt hanging which I received in a "Christmas In July" swap last year. 


Happy Sunday everyone

Cheers
