Mixed blessings on the Wedding day

I had to utmost pleasure to witness a very close friend of mine, a teacher I team-taught with for 4 years, get married to the woman of his dreams yesterday…..it was beautiful……even better was watching a man with emotions (I’m talking, a man who has his guard up 24/7) shed a tear! photomania-fe68a3e102d3a4eebd1ecad0b65e1b05 none of this “he-man, manly, muscly, butch” stuff….but full-on, raw, exposed, REAL emotion…..it was beautiful. IMG_4277 (1024x768) Set in a gorgeous tropical setting, it was a perfect day for the middle of winter (can you believe it?) IMG_4257 (1024x768) and we even got to share the first meal with them at Watermark on the Strand.  With Marty being a HUGE Broncos fan, and Nay not knowing one end of the field from the other before she met Marty, the cake topper was the ideal choice… IMG_4301 (768x1024)IMG_4302 (768x1024) We enjoyed an afternoon of love, laughter and reminiscing…..the perfect combination in the most beautiful of settings…. IMG_4310 (1024x768) It was an exceptionally beautiful day, all bar one thing…..I didn’t have their present ready…. IMG_4220 (1024x768) I had been working on it day in-day out, trying to get it completed for the BIG day, but alas, the quilting beat me!  I still have a bit to go, but now it’s going to be their after-honeymoon gift. IMG_4246 (1024x768) They assure me they don’t mind, but I have mixed emotions…wanting to complete it in time but wanting to have it ‘just perfect’ saw me not finishing it in time……. IMG_4248 (1024x768) so it just means another visit real soon to these two wonderful newlyweds for their first very special delivery!  I’m sure I’ll be making a baby quilt in the near future *wink*   I’ll just have to plan my time better for that one!   May they be forever blessed.

Don't you just love a wedding. The quilt is so lovely I'm sure they won't mind waiting a little longer.

What a lovely occasion. Shame about the quilt but you are right - better to have it finished properly than rushed. They will love it. xx

There have been a lot of weddings lately - 2 in the past two weekends here as well!! Your quilt will be lovely - and they will love it just as much when they do receive it, as if you'd gotten it ready for their wedding!! It looks lovely Wendy!!! <3

You can "feel" the love from the photos. Your quilt is going to be stunning - they'll come back from their honeymoon with a little bit of the wedding still to look forward to xx
