A Lovely Day - A Sikh Wedding and a Ring!

I had a much needed break yesterday, attending my nephew's Wedding in Leicester. It was quite a day physically and emotionally, as my nephew is my brother's youngest son, by his first wife, who died 25yrs ago. She and my brother were sadly missed but would have been extremely proud of all of their children. It was lovely to see them all supporting the Groom, as he married his Sikh bride. The Sikh Wedding is quite something to experience, their hospitality is second to none and the colours are beautiful. The Bride was gorgeous and the Groom looked very handsome. They asked me to make them a Guest Book which is in my Mixing Media Blog (see the sidebar)and had some supplies which I didn't use for that, so made them a book about the story of the Wedding Ring.
A few months ago I received an advertisement from a leading car maker in the form of a book inside this four cornered envelope. I painted them all red, embellished them and decorated the envelope to match.

Thank you all for your kind words of support for me and my family, I read and appreciate them all, my Bloggy friends and crafting are keeping me sane. Thank you for looking and any sweet words you leave for me.

    Baden has had a tough time but today he is walking without his stick and is feeling much better .. he has lost 11 kgms in weight ... the hip has not been the problem it is the reaction to the spinal block which has created lots of issue for him ... another 3 weeks to go lying on his back and then he can roll over ... he will be so relieved ... the worst is behind him now ... thanks for all you love and care xoxxooxox
