On Satuarday we attended a friend's lovely wedding. I drank far to much champagne :S
...Had a wonderful time.
My favoourite parts were watching a lovley elderly couple jiving on the dance floor to some 50's rock 'n' roll.
I love how us reserved English people really let their hair down at weddings!
Another very beautiful moment was when we went out into the garden to light chinese lanterns.
Watching those lanterns twinkle into the inky blue distance was very poignant and moving.
Small glowing carriers of hopes, dreams and wishes. Up, Up to the stars and beyond.
Sunday needed to be chilled and stilled.
We broke open the scrap fabric stash :)
Matilda learned chain stitch and french knots. Two most perfect flower making stitches.
I cut out a rainbow of lovely plant dyed organic wool felt.
And made a mobile for the girl's bedroom.
I love needle felting.
I've probably said that before.
But I really, really do.
We have the kindest friends you know. Friends who bring us big baskets of lovely fresh greenes from their allotments and gardens!!!
There is almost nothing more refreshing than mint leaf tea.
Tani took the girls for a run on the grass.
These two are building a really special bond.
Belatedly joining Amanda @ "the habit of being" for weekending.
