Wedding Things . . . . . . . . . . .

Here pictures of a few of the things I have been working on for our youngest daughter's wedding next month.

I need to make the garter, which she will not see until their wedding day and finish the place cards.

This is the bracelet and earrings. They are not perfect, this is the first time I have made a bracelet and earrings using sterling silver wire. with twists. A new experience and I did enjoy making them.

The colors for the wedding are red, black and white, this is the box for the cards, if anyone brings them to the reception.

I covered the box with cotton fabric by using paper backed fusible iron on interfacing and ironed the fabric on the box when it was flat, used the paper backed fusible iron on interfacing to attach the ribbon at each end. The ribbons are not straight in the picture, but can be straighten by gently moving them.

We will be putting the place cards on this bulletin board, there will be two cards, one with the person's name and the second one with the name of the table where they will be seated for lunch. The fabric was stapled to the bulletin board, then I covered the back with the red fabric. I used the mounting method that I learned at the Royal School of Needlework, it is a great technique.

Hope everyone is enjoying a little summer weather, we have our rain back today.

Wedding and no blogging!

I haven't posted anything lately, our youngest daughter is getting married so I have been working on several things for the wedding. Bracelet, earrings, bulletin board, garter, card box, etc. And a gift for them too, can't post a picture yet.

We are enjoying nice weather, no rain for the last 27 days, although it has been nice not to have rain we do need a little to clean up the air.

Hope everyone is having a great summer!
