Wedding presents

As promised, this post is going to be a celebration of my clever friends and family. I was so amazed by the thought and creativity that went in the gifts we received for our wedding, but here I would like to highlight the homemade.

Most particular, from my sister of who it could previously have been said wouldn’t know how to thread a needle!
She sewed every stitch herself and I am so pleased with it!

From my mother-in-law and one of my sisters-in-law another beautiful sampler – I love the colours in the piece!

My husband’s employee [Leonie](http://www.distilled.co.uk/company/people/leonie-wharton.html) not only designed our [invitations](http://www.suzical.co.uk/blog/suzical/200-and-counting), but also made us this book, it’s embroidered with our initials: DM on the front and SM on the back

Another of Duncan’s employees, [Emily](http://www.distilled.co.uk/company/people/emily-wright.html) is a very clever artist, she gave us this lovely screen print. My photo doesn’t do it justice, I couldn’t get rid of the reflection – there’s some stitch work on this as well..

We also got some lovely homemade cards – I was using a borrowed camera and not all the photos turned out well, but here’s a photo of most of the cards – there are more out of shot..

and in particular ones from my old flat mate Hannah:

and last but not in the least least a card from my parent’s neighbour, Christine – this is a waterfall card.
I hadn’t come across one before, but I’ve just had a quick google and found a [tutorial](http://www.cardinspirations.co.uk/tech/waterfall_card.htm) for how to make this type of card.

So many thanks to all!!
