The tale of the beaded wedding dress...

Recently I offered to make a wedding dress as a gift, to some friends of mine who were getting married. Their original dress maker wasn't able to do it, so I offered to help.

The dress was made using fabric from the bride's sisters old gown, so I set to work on designing a classic vintage style gown that the bride wanted.

The hardest part was all the beading and the dress was quite heavy when completed, but it really did look a treat.

Sometimes it's good to push yourself to tight deadlines, especially when it makes people so very happy :)

We really are the Lucky ones !

Rufus the field mouse

A very dear friend of mine discovered he had a little field mouse living in the old aga in his kitchen. We think the mouse was a survivor that the cat had brought in.

Here is a lovely little film about that mouse that we decided to call Rufus :)
