Linking up with Ginny today for a Yarn Along...It was a close call, but I finished and blocked my Aestlight Shawl Friday night for the wedding on Saturday.
Not that I really needed it as it was a boiling hot day. Lots of lovely ladies looking pretty in strappy summer dresses while the men folk all trussed-up suits and ties got a little 'hot under their collars', (but at least they got to wear flats!!)
I accesorized with my beautiful mothers day gifts of a hand painted bag & bracelet and a few roses from my mother-in-laws garden, and made a mental note to myself to remember that when putting flowers in your hair it's a good idea to have put your dress on first!
Whilst I'm waiting for my copy of Taproot to arrive, I'm re-re-reading a collection of short stories by John Steinbeck (Tortilla Flat, Of Mice & Men, The Moon is Down, The Red Pony, The Pearl, Cannery Row), and will probably read it again in the future. I've had this book since I was about 18 and never tire of it!
So to finish here is a picture of Emline, who made a most beautiful bride
and my two little monkeys, clean (ish, someone gave Tino a chocolate chip cookie 5 minutes before we left for church), with freshly cut hair and wearing ties!!
