AN EXTRA RUBY ANIVERSARY GIFT
Good evening everyone. I hope you are all in good health and if you are a little under the weather here is a (hug).
I had a lovely break away Tammy and I did 856 miles all told. We shared the driving so it wasn't to bad, and it was lovely seeing friends again that I haven't seen for about 2 years. Tammy enjoyed seeing her god parents she hasn't seen them for 4 years with having two little boys its not always easy to get away.
We meet up with Michelle (happy 2 craft) yesterday for a cup of tea and a chat. Michelle is lovely and seeing I have only been e-mailing her for about 9 months and felt I had known her personally for a while, a bit like when Patricia and I meet Wilma (Scottish crafter) and Kate (culliesocks) .
This evening I am showing an extra gift I made for Kathryn and David the friends I was down visiting. It was their Ruby Anverisary a few weeks ago, we had sent a cheque for them to get euros to spend on the holiday they went on, but I wanted to give a little gift, they have just down sized to a smaller house and she had been telling me that they had put in a new white bathroom suite and retiled with plain white tiles as she was sure what colour she wanted to go for, so this ways a change of towel colour would change the look. So I decided to make up a basket using red, black and white. This is what I did.
I found this range of Baylis and Harding which was a bit different and then got red bath towels and white and black flannels, put them in this large basket then clinged it and tied organza ribbon round, and as usually one product moved I redid it but forgot to take another photo. I could have left it and said it moved while driving but I wouldn't have been happy. An extra strip of double sided tape on the back of the bottle was just enough to stop it moving.
Kathryn was very pleased as she had been trying to think if red would be colour she would be happy with. Having known Kathryn for over 25 years I told her I didn't mind if she didn't like the red I wouldn't be upset she knew what I meant.
Any way that's it hope you haven't fallen asleep with all the waffle.
Thank you for all the lovely comments on my wedding gift.
