Quick Gifts

I had another quick present to make.  I had trouble finding soccer themed fabric though.  

This was the closest I could come up with!  (bargain fabric too!  Under $10 for this one!)

Special Party

We had a bit of a party today to celebrate our wedding anniversary with a bunch of special people.  

Was a great day for all of us despite the 52mm of rain.  A little rain wasn't going to dampen the mood.  
Also an update of our wedding party from all that time ago.  One bridesmaid missing & the page boy.  But we aren't looking too bad for the rest of us!
