Wedding Embroidery

Well hello!  The move from my flat happened last Friday - 17th May.  We've had the week off work and have been working on the new house - stripping wallpaper, knocking out a fireplace, and generally being very destructive!  There will be pictures to come when/if we finish anything...!

In the meantime, we had a nice day away from DIY yesterday to go to my sister-in-law's sister's wedding (that's my brother's wife's sister!)

I had done a bit of crafting for the wedding - I gave you a glimpse of an embroidery outline in a previous post.  Here is the finished embroidery:

 I drew the pattern on paper, then traced onto white cotton with a fine permanent pen.  I then used purple embroidery thread to stitch along the lines.

In the bottom corner are two mother-of-pearl heart buttons, outlined with stitches...

And a bow in the top corner...

I framed it in a white box frame...

And it went on the table with the guest book, post box etc...

The bride, my sister-in-law, my Mum and myself decorated the guest book and post box too, and did other crafty bits and bobs for the wedding.

It was a lovely day!


  1. Aww Maria, that's beautiful! I bet the bride loved it!

  2. Well done for the move, hope you get settled in soon and get the place looking how you want it. :o)
    Well done on the embroidery, it looks wonderful.

  3. Maria that is so precious! Where were you when I was getting married?! I would have killed to have had people like you on my side. So awesome and thoughtful. And detailed.

    I hope your new home and all your renovating is going well :)

    xx A

  4. What a lovely idea! I need a wedding gift idea for a dear friend of mine who got married recently. Thank you so much for the inspiration!
