I thought I would share with you what I made my sister for her 50th Wedding Anniversary ... which was back in April this year. I didn't want to give her anything store bought so I decided to make her something special and as I was the little flowergirl [well there is 12 years between us] I printed out my re-collections of how her wedding day went for me and stuck them on the back which they thought made for some interesting reading. It's a 10" X 10" canvas ....
The canvas was a lot of fun to make and although I couldn't fit the bridesmaids on the canvas I decided I would add
the colours of our frocks [as they were called back then ... ha ha]. So on my photo you will see blue & pink ribbon -
I wore that shade of blue and the bridesmaids wore the pink. Mum wore this steely grey with a blue hat & gloves.
To finish the canvas I painted some ribbon braid gold to run around the edge.
Who remembers bubble nylon & flock nylon - well that is what our dresses/frocks were made out of Joan/bride's was flock nylon with little flowers and the rest of us had the bubble.
