Wedding Napkins!

Chelsea and David's wedding reception was held in 
the Grand Ballroom at the Windsor Hotel. 
It was such a beautiful room. 
Weeks prior to the wedding, Chelsea, her mother, 
David's mother and I'm not sure who else, 
were very busy making special napkins for the day.
On each napkin there was a brooch or scarf clip attached. 
These were a gift from Chelsea as a memento of their wedding day. 
Chelsea had spent months going to markets and second 
hand stalls to purchase them all. 
There were floral napkins for the women and navy for the men. 
I was cheeky and brought some home. In fact I brought six home, 
three of each. I asked Chelsea what they did with
 all the napkins. She said some people took theirs home and 
she will use the others when holding high teas at home. 
I gave her the wrapped bag and laughed telling her I 
was one of those people too and that I took six!
I made fat quarter bags with them. 
One for Chelsea and one each for Karen and Luba, the two mothers.
I lined them with the navy napkins.

I thought they could put some wedding things in them.
Chelsea is going to put the trinkets that were on the bridal table in hers.
While I was taking these photos in the sewing room, 
the dogs started barking. I looked up and there was 
Mr Fox walking past! 
I ran out and chased him down the driveway. 
Didn't want him out the back with my chickens
although the dogs would have chased him out there.

Friday Night Sew-In

My project for the night was stitching the 
binding down on Nelson's new quilt. 
Continued stitching yesterday at NOTYQ's Guild meeting until 
my fingers got too sore. I just can't use a thimble!
Thanks to Wendy for hosting us Friday night.
You can see what others got up to here.
