Where did I get that hat?

Guess where we went on Saturday?





Yes, a wedding. My goddaughter (the daughter of an old friend), got married and it was such a lovely wedding.



Great to get dressed up in all the gear, new hat, new shoes – the lot. The ceremony was lovely – everyone seemed to find it amusing that I was squashed between husbands. The ex was invited and it was good to catch up with his news.





It was a lovely occasion – these days we seem to have been to more funerals than weddings and it made a most delightful change – Laura was a lovely bride and the groom was Scottish so it was all kilts and funny socks. The vicar said it was great not being the only man in a skirt! Instead of confetti we were all given special wedding bubbles to blow. Great fun.






At the reception I produced the little Pogo printer from my handbag and was able to print off some pics while we waited to be fed. It was a simple matter to stick them into the order of service booklet and the bride and groom were delighted. I told them that they won’t be the best photos they’ll see, but they were the first.
I’ve been playing with my rock-art photos. Here is a postcard decorated with Pogo prints and sprayed with Moon Shadow Mist.


Lots of printing has been done to turn these studies into a bigger piece – now I must start on the stitching.

I love the hat! Here in the mountains of North Carolina we rarely dress up so it was nice to see you in all your finery. I have been following you blog and really enjoy your sharing your life as well as your wonderful work. Thank you

Gorgeous hat - it's perfect with your outfit and suits you so well. What a great idea to have bubbles instead of confetti. Your rock art Pogo prints are super and the 'hot off the press' wedding photos must have impressed everyone. Lovely couple.

Great hat! In Canada we don't get to wear them very often. I've been meaning to ask where you found your Zink paper. I have the printer but it's really hard to find paper here. I'll be in UK next month, so could pick some up. Thanks and when are you coming to teach on the West Coast? Ann
