A couple of weeks ago I was surprised to be contacted by Susan from Crafty Corners blog asking if she could feature my blog in her weekly round-up post. I was flattered to be asked and, after browsing the site to see what it was all about, jumped at the chance. If you'd like to see the post, follow the link above; take the chance to have a browse around while you're there too. I particularly like the DIY Toothbrush Bracelet in the Jewelry section. I submitted a short piece and a photo and in no time was emailed by Susan to say the post was up.
All the arrangements for the party went well (almost) and the evening was a great success. The gorgeous cake came from My Beautiful Cake and was picked up by J the previous day. Inside is a delicious two-layer zingy lemon sponge!!!
Here's the banner in situ with the cake, post box and a photo of the happy couple in the Rose Garden at Disney World, where they got engaged.
It was a shame that no-one noticed J and A had timed the music perfectly to play Be Our Guest from Beauty and the Beast just as the buffet was served (so I pointed it out to a few people).
After the buffet A thanked everyone for coming and made a toast to the happy couple, then (as a complete surprise) J presented me with some flowers (roses of course) and OH with chocolates as a thank you for putting on the party.
Now all that's left to do is organise the wedding... Gulp! Did I mention before, J wants to get married at Disney World?!!! (Not for a little while though).
Progress since last time:
All sashing and corner pieces cut for QAYG quilt.
Lots of TV time hand-sewing hexagons.
Bye for now
