Silver Wedding Anniversary



This week my DH and I have been celebrating our silver wedding anniversary. I don't know where the years have gone. I can't believe we have been married for 25 years, we are not old enough. A friend suggested I must have been a child bride and was given the day off school to get married, now that's more like it.

Thank you all for the cards and gifts.

We had a quiet celebration with a family pub lunch. The plan was to then have champagne and cake in the garden. The bunting was up and ready to go when the heavens opened and it poured.

We all took shelter in the conservatory and my sewing table was pressed into service to hold the cake. We had a lovely day.

To commemorate the event I have made a little quilt with 25 hearts. The label still needs to be completed with the dates on.
But a weekend wouldn't be complete without a little bit of sewing and my gift to myself was Gift, Rosie Quinlan's new book. It is lovely, beautifully photographed and the designs are lovely too. What will I make first?
