Stephanie has designed and made the Invitations to the wedding, I love it!!!
the background is Hill End and the ribbons are from Spotlight. I think it suits their style perfectly. Old worldly with a modern touch. She has also designed some postcards too depicting Hill End as reply cards that she will stamp and address herself so that they will be properly addressed. Things are really moving along quite nicely. Anyone contemplating a wedding has a lot to think of, but remember the most important thing. It is a celebration of the love of two people sharing themselves with the people they love the most. and it is as simple as that.

This is a set of Tea Light Candles chosen as part of the wedding decorations. My daughter lives in Sydney and we live in Melbourne, and although this is her wedding we are very much involved, running our ideas back and forth. Well this was one of them. I bought a packet, e-mailed her a picture, got a Yes from her and promptly went out and bought 11 more packets!! So now we have a start. 36 of these delightful candles. the colours of the wedding is cream, copper, old gold with brown and pistachio accents.

A.C.D.A. Meeting

At our Cloth Doll Club called ACDA on Saturday we had our annual Pink Day fundraiser We had to wear pink clothes, bring pink food, something pink for the raffle and bring along money to buy raffle tickets.
Well, I thought last year we did good, but we topped ourselves this year, just in the amount of prizes to be won. I think there was 15 in total, Very very nice!I have really never thought of pink very much and certainly not a good colour to wear, boy, was i delighted to be proved wrong! The atmosphere in the club was calm and to have such a wide range of pink was indeed delightful! I won a prize! This wonderful painting by one of our members. She is really lovely, now where to put her! she is just propped on the craft table for now, but i will hang her up very soon.
I also was very lucky and won the door prize too!!!! Each month we have a colour palette or a theme to bring something to add to the door prize bag and of course a profussion of pink this month. What is supposed to happen is the winner is supposed to make something from it and show the following month, not an obligation but a suggestion. I think from memory since we started this 2 years ago that 4 things have been made from the winners of the bags. So for me this is my next project. Give me a day or two and i will have an idea of what i am going to do. As usual i will show it as it is forming step by step until it is finished.
