Special, Beautiful things!!

Look at this ring cushion that Francie has made for her granddaughter's wedding this weekend in Queenstown! She has crosshatched the satin background so that it has a luscious, shiny texture - the doily in the centre is one that Francie made when she was 17 and the tatting around the edge was done by the bride's great great aunt when she was in her 70's. The silver ribbons that are attached to the centre are for tying on the wedding rings - they aren't old, but she bought them at The Cloth Shop so that makes them special too!! It's a beautiful, sentimental thing - perfect for a romantic summer wedding.
