Anniversary and baby dress.



On Tuesday we celebrated our 30th wedding anniversay. Can't believe it has been so long I can still remember little details --- when my 3 yr old neice jumped in the car to accompany us on our honeymoon!! Anyhow this October 27th was spent quietly , we are going to have a celebration meal when the rest of the family visit. In the meantime our three daughters all contributed to a wonderful present --- a delicious hamper, as seen in photo, it contained chocs(notice the past tense there!), preserves , a fruit cake and biscuits all from Fortnum and Masons. Thankyou girls.

So to keep my fingers off the chocs I have finished my skirt and am now starting to stitch a dress for my grandaughter.See photo above, the version I've chosen has short sleeves and I am making it in white broderie anglaise and hopefully I'll find blue velevet ribbon to make a sash. Here's hoping it turns out well!

Happy Aniversary! Isn't it amazing how time flies and how you can remember things from years ago and yet forget what you did last week (or is that just me?)

Belated congratulations from me too! We also celebrated our 30th anniversary this year - no big party, just simply happy to be still together while so many of our peers have split up in recent years.
