Wedding present

We were invited to a wedding. Lovely. Plenty of notice and so pleased to accept the invitation, for a good friend's daughter's wedding...

As it transpired, the fates conspired against us and we were unable to attend. Other priorities had to be made. So sorry. i am still hoping to see photos... But anyway, a gift had to be made.

Taking things to the extreme, you may know I am a fan of portholes?  So, I thought, a cushion with portholes... But we do want this to be totally special? yes...

How about portholes in letter shapes? well, some letters happen to be easier than others...


It took quite some doing... but I finally got there... No telling how blue the air got at times...


 No prizes for guessing bride and groom's names!
 Staged on my daughters bed...



And a modern take on the other side, just so they can ditch the kitsch if they wish!  I do hope they like it .

What a lovely present and how brave of you to try letter portholes!
