Last Saturday, a close friend of ours got married. And another friend (who moved back to the UK some years ago) came to stay with us for the weekend, so that she could go to the wedding too.
Of course, the wedding was beautiful, and the bride looked stunning (I should really add loving weddings to the ‘about me’ page of the blog). And it was great to catch up with friends who I hadn’t seen for some time. AND there were LOADS of people there who I could talk crafting with! What an added bonus!!! The bride was the patient lady who taught me to knit, and I managed to chat my way around three other knitters and a fellow sewer! I think I may have even found myself a possible crochet teacher – which is very exciting!
So, all-in-all, I had a FANTASTIC day: my first German wedding; a beautiful bride; speeches that made me shed a few tears (which is a sure sign they were good); fun with friends old and new; plenty of craft-talk; plenty of food; plenty of wine; and plenty of dancing!
BUT, the excitement didn’t stop there! As our lovely house guest was leaving on Sunday morning, she gave me a ‘goody bag’ as a thanks-for-having-me gift. And what a goody bag it was! Inside, there was a copy of the ‘Hobbycraft’ magazine (which I’d never read before, but liked very much), two cards of gorgeous, gorgeous buttons (some round red ones with white spots, and some green hearts), a string of sparkly pink beads, and a HUGE bar of chocolate.
Imagine all of those crafty and yummy treats – and it wasn’t even my birthday!?!
Thank you soooooo much Melanie!!! You can come and stay again any time!!! ;-)
