These photos of Spring blossoms were taken recently. They are so pretty against the blue sky, real wedding inspiration. I am so looking forward to The Royal Wedding to seeing the dress. I am sure Catherine Middleton will look stunning. On face book for the British Monachy there are updates on the wedding plans. Fiona Cairns is making the wedding cake and McVities a biscuit cake to a family recipe requested by Prince William for the reception. We will be eating cake too that day as part of the celebrations. In keeping with the wedding theme I have been experimenting with a few embroidered flowers on some shell pink silk dupion and have posted a little picture here. I do so love bullion roses they are best worked with a milliners needle as it has a long shaft for the wraps of thread. There are two needles in the picture the other is a crewel needle if I remember rightly I have used it for the french knots and the leaves.
Enjoy your weekend :)
