A wedding, Family and sewing

 I have just returned from a few days in Melbourne to attend  the wedding of my cousin Vanece and her lovely new husband Michael, It was a beautiful day and all the wedding party looked stunning, especially the bride.
 As well as a wedding it was a family reunion for me, my brother and sister and my parents. We haven't seen each other for 3 years. We had such a good time together. My brother is so funny, he had us in fits of laughter the whole time.
 We don't have many photos of us together so this one is special.  We all made a pact to try and see each other more often, its hard when we all live in different states but we are only a plane ride away. My sister hasn't seen my children for 11 years.  Time certainly flies by. Since spending time together and now I'm home I have realised that I miss them alot.
 Just before I left last week I received my swap gifts from my Friends in stitching swap, We had  to make something designed by Nat Bird. I got this beautiful table runner , it has lots of paper piecing stars and stitchery.
 Beautiful colours.
 I was a bit lucky and received this lovely christmas wall hanging as well.
And a beautiful little purse filled with Tilda ribbon and fabric and some easter eggs.

Thank you so much Lorraine, my gifts are amazing.
