Welcome to my blog

I hope you enjoy reading my posts, and please leave me a comment. I always enjoy reading them, and will try to visit you in return.

You are welcome to copy any of my designs, as long as you do not take credit for them yourself. I am very happy for you to sell them. If I have used anyone else's design, I always try to give credit where it is due. If I have missed anything, please let me know and I will put things right.

This is intended to be mainly about my crafting stories, as a personal record of what I do. However, I interpret crafting quite widely, not just paper crafting but other things too. I have a butterfly mind and like to change from one thing to another depending on what I feel like on a given day - knitting, crochet, cross-stitch, cards, baking and several others.

Annie's Friday Smile - 3

This may not be the best photo ever, but it does bring a smile every time I see it so it fits very well into the Friday Smile.

Our daughter had a mediaeval wedding celebration, with all the guests dressed in costume.  Her dress was the one she had always drawn from a child, and her husband was dressed in full armour.  Our grandson was totally confused - he was looked after by strangers during the ceremonies and his Dad clanked whenever he moved (that armour was incredibly heavy).

In between the two parts of the reception, things calmed down a little and he found a lovely flower for his Mum (a dandelion - a weed is only a flower in the wrong place and they look wonderful up the central reservations and grass verges. 

The guests all entered into the action by dressing up.  In fact, it was very strange when we all left as we had all got used to the costumes and got very strange looks from people at the petrol station.

Why don't you join in now and post your own Friday Smile over at Annie's Stitch in Time, and give the rest of us a smile.

The photo is so sweet and your daughter looks just lovely. What a dream to be swept off your feet and to marry a knight in shining armour!
I remember when we sung in a choir we did an Old Time Music Hall show and we were stopped by the police whilst we ere in full fancy dress. The officer said, "Ey up, ey up, what do we 'av 'ere? This is a first"!!!
Thanks for the smile!
love Jo x

I remember getting stared at in costume going to a mediaeval wedding ceremony.

She's beautiful, and what a lovely gift he found for her.

Great picture. Lovely that she had her dream wedding day.
Personally I like dandelions. Me and Ellie (2 yr old Granddaughter) while away many a walk blowing clocks.
