Golden Wedding Anniversary

It was my parent's Golden Wedding Anniversary on Friday and we had a wonderful night out. 19 of us (all family) went out for a lovely meal, Stuart made a cake and it was great to see everyone.
Here is the card I made them, they really liked it.



And here is a photo of me with Mum and Dad, I love this photo and am going to get a copy printed to be framed.



As I have had a few days off work I have been able to spend time stitching. I have worked on Henry quite a bit but when I look back at my last post with the last photo of him I'm sure I can't see a huge amount of difference. I will post another photo next week.
I thought instead I would share with you "Safe Haven" I am doing this as a SAL but feel it is really coming along now. It has lots of blended colours and the central part is in 2 threads whereas the outer edge is in 1 thread!


It is my birthday tomorrow so I booked another day off work. I am having a girly day out at the shops then lunch out! Then back to work Tuesday !
Happy Stitching

Safe haven is looking good. I did a design from that series and it stitsched up really well. I framed it in a plain silver frame and I still love it years later.

Lovely picture of your parents and you. They don't look old enough to have been married so long!

Lovely card you made for your parents. Many congrats to them. Safe Haven looks very pretty, like the colours they look sort of 'gentle'
