Here Comes The Bride

You may remember a sneak peek at this stitchery a few weeks ago:

I stitched this up for the ring cushion for our friends wedding. The wedding is Saturday and its been a rush to organise, we had 10 weeks. There hasnt been a true colour scheme to the whole thing except us bridesmaids are wearing lemon, so this is how it turned out:


Im happy with it, the bride is esctatic (and thats the important thing) and I guess its less traditional than the usual ring cushion (the bride didnt want traditional!!) but its still pretty.

We chose the gold ribbon to tie the rings on, much prettier than the white we had originally chosen. The rings are gold and white gold so it matches nicely!


And for the ringbearer I have added some handholds.......I sectioned it and he can slide his hands in there and will be holding it securely, less chance of him dropping it hopefully. Still heaps more to do but at least the cushion is complete!

Hope everyone had a lovely Easter...........lucky girl me, hubby gave me a copy of this:


Ive been waiting for this book to hit the shelves.......I am a huge fan of Masterchef and this book is truely lovely. Its very well thought out, got some great recipes and I love the section in the back for me to write our own Family Recipes and memories.
Lots of reading and not much cooking as yet, but I will!
