Firstly, I have absolutely no idea why these pictures are of such terrible quality- I have not grainfied them- I can only assume that my mother, who hates having her picture taken has used her wise woman power to soft focus herself. Anyway terrible quality pictures do not lessen how happy looking at these pics makes me. My Mum and Dad will celebrate their Ruby anniversary next weekend and are re-visiting their honeymoon destination of London. I overheard a conversation in a fabric shop a good few years ago about someone making a golden wedding quilt and felt that a quilt would be a good present for my lovely parents who are not in any way materialistic but appreciate a bit of handmade. I chose a medieval style print and took colours from it- at the time this went really well with the decor in Mum and Dads bedroom, but as it was a good few years ago they have since redecorated and it now doesn't really match any room in the house, but they don't seem to mind!
I had a lovely time in Dorset and have lots more, much better pictures to share but for now here is photographic proof that a) it is possible to be married for forty years and still be friends b) my Dad does have the most excellent beard and c)that occasionally I do actually finish something!
