I had a big family weekend. My youngest sister Jessica got married on Sunday and my eldest sister Robyn had a surprise 40th birthday party. Her actual birthday was February but she was in Katherine so her husband organised a party for when they were in Melbourne. He was very proud that it was kept a secret.
So for some photos.
This is the wedding charm that I made using a love bird button. I used some of the fabric that was left over from the flowergirl dresses.
The beading that I did which took ages but got me a thank you in the bride's speech.
The pageboys and flowergirls I know I am a biased Aunty but aren't they or so cute. They did such a great job I am so proud of them. Only problem was I couldn't tell Thomas and Joshua apart because they were wearing exactly the same thing.
This is me and my beautiful cousins Tash and Lea.
The bride and groom.
I did find time to make something during the last week. An iphone holder from Janelle Wind's book Pieces of Me. I gave it to my friend Janet for her birthday so I did have to get it done. It is a pretty quick pattern to put together.
I had today off work to recover from all the weddings and parties it was a long weekend in Victoria so the wedding was on Sunday and the party on Monday. I thought I would need a rest so I went to a couple of quilt shops and found a layer cake of Vintage Modern. I was a bit excited when I found this and I was told the bolts will be in shortly. I have had a look and I just love it. I have a collection of patterns that I want to use it in. I have also been doing some sewing and machine quilting and have had a really lovely day after all the goings on.
