A Family Wedding

Hi All!

 Haven’t been around for a  while ’cause I’ve been busy with lots of stitching, but not the XXX kind. There was a family wedding to prepare for, so both Janome sewing machine and overlocker have been in overdrive getting our costumes ready.

After a couple of weekends of shopping we (my DD and yours truly) ended up with these:

DDs fabrics, shoes and accessories

 The final result was this:

 The wedding ceremony was held at the Botaical Gardens in Adelaide – presenting the beautiful bride and handsome groom:

The wedding was great. Needless to say, we had a ball!

I’ve been doing a bit of stitching – will show you next post. Until then, Happy Stitching 😉
