I hope your weather has been as beautiful as it has been here today .. .. glorious sunshine for most of the day!
Many thanks for all your lovely comments and the sewing machine memories you shared in response to my blog post of yesterday. My Mum's machine was used for sewing bits of chamois leather together to make full sized leathers. She did this as outwork to bring a few more pennies into the house. I can still smell the bits of leather now (and have to admit to always sniffing chamois leathers if I see them on sale anywhere).
I did own a similar sewing machine back in the 70's when we were first married and I can remember spending many a happy hour turning the handle to make .. .. .. .. wait for it .. .. .. Crimplene dresses!!! LOL!! But I foolishly traded it in to get a discount when Mr Heart bought me the "trusty sewing machine" I use now.
No chance to clean up my new machine yet as I am still catching up from being away, but I am sure it won't be long as my hands are itching for a play with it.
But for now .. .. as promised .. .. here are a few of the wedding cards I made for various folk to give to my Niece who got married on Monday:
This is the one Mr Heart and I sent:
This was made for my youngest Son to give:
Then this was for my lovely Sis to give to her beautiful daughter.
It looked really nice nestled inside a vellum lined box.
I won't list what each one used as I will be here all day, but if there is anything you want to know more about then you know you only have to ask.
There are no prizes for guessing that the wedding was all themed around yellow and buttons!!
No rose petals scattered up the aisle for my Niece .. .. but die cut buttons cut from tissue paper along with the odd heart here and there. Super cute and all loving cut by her Sister! I bet she has RSI now!!
So that is me for today.
Time for favour box duties for me now.
Catch you soon.
