Checkmate Kate! You won the King

What a magical day - today Prince William of England married Kate Middleton - I was working in the home today and decided to throw a little wedding party for the residents - they all had the English flags and waited with me to catch sight of the dress!
and for me it did not disappoint! What a stunning choice - elegant and in my eyes Kate looked every once like Grace Kelly - what do you think?

and I must say I was in awe of the choice to have the bridal party wearing white!

It is said that when Prince Harry saw Kate walking up the aisle he turned to William and whispered "she looks stunning", then when William saw her he told her she looked lovely, very Beautiful ... Aww!

After the wedding Prince William took his new wife out in his sports car to wave to the thousands there, I think after watching the wedding I like them even more, as they have brought something "real" to the Royal family

and finally I got to see the second dress that Kate changed into, and I think I have found my style icon!

Easter Crochet and a Crazy Cat Lady!

Hello everyone - I hope you had a lovely and peaceful Easter, It has been such a long week for me, I spent Monday and Tuesday working on some projects for a upcoming fair that I was going to attend at the weekend: I decided to make these crosses to celebrate Easter
Cross 1

Cross 2

Cross 3

Cross 4

I received very sad news which put everything under a dark cloud, so I didnt crochet anything else for the fair and instead decided not to attend, as I had had a very emotional week attending the wake and funeral of a friends wife, I pray for her and her husband and children, may she rest in peace. Amen.

On Easter Sunday We spent the day with family - I made these egg cozies and gave them as gifts with egg cups

Today I was off work and had a very lazy day watching movies and eating, but in the evening I decided to crochet my cat Hope a little jacket, (does this make me a crazy cat lady now?)

The funny thing is, she really likes it!
