Today I have been swamped in all things floral. Darling daughter’s wedding is fast approaching and I had finally assembled all the flowers so it was time to turn them into bouquets and corsages and boutonnieres.
She wanted something fairly informal and in autumnal colours to go with the lovely purple frocks her bridesmaids will be wearing. I don’t think I’m too far off the mark 🙂
Today was also the day that Vicci’s wedding shawl arrived. My friend Janet does the most amazingly delicate shawls, so fine they will actually pass through the inside of a wedding ring! She has been extremely kind and made one for Vicci – the work in progress posts on ravelry are just stunning so I can’t wait to see how the finished shawl looks with Vicci’s beautiful dress. It’s lovely having such wonderfully talented friends, it sounds a bit soppy but in my head seeing that shawl wrapped around my daughter on her wedding day will be like having her wrapped in love and friendship and that has to be the perfect omen for a happy marriage. That’s pretty awesome.
