How proud I was on Thursday

How proud I was on Thursday
My Daughter Sophie Graduated
 She got her BA(hons) Artist Blacksmithing

Over the years Sophie has been many things besides a cherished Daughter
She was never afraid to be different!
~~
She was a beautiful young lady at her school leavers ball

~~
 A bossy farm helper
 ~~
 A Kitten at a Pop festival

 ~~
 A Dinosaur
~~
 Hello Kitty Lover
 ~~
And a tiny female blacksmith amongst big burly men blacksmiths

~~
An Exhibitor
Exhibiting her work 26-29th June 2013 New Designers in London
Sophie's work is the brightly colored exhibit at the end

The Big Day Arrived
sat in the Green Dragon Hotel in Hereford
after being photographed
Waiting nervously for the procession to Hereford Catheadral
for the ceremony
 Sophie's Graduation Day 

Inside the cathedral  waiting for the two hour ceremony to start
we had to be in by 2.30 for 3pm 
I was admiring the architecture but had to stop looking up when vertigo took over

 Two Hours Later on one of the hottest days of the year
it was all over
and we where back outside

Then It was time for the flying hats tradition

And the hugs & the laughs

Then off for champagne
It was a lovely day and I was a very proud parent 

Have a great weekend

New style edging

New style edging on my latest creation
found this in my little book & thought it would look nice on the pillowcases
I used a pretty Blueberry Sorbet crochet cotton
that compliments the fabric so nicely
IMG 7954 
it is deeper then the shell design with three rows of crocheting but I think it was worth it
 
You can see the back view on the last image with its contrasting fabric
The gorgeous floral is LOVE by Amy butler for Rowan


New edging



Have a great weekend
