Last weekend I was in Switzerland with my family, to attend Pirmin and Angelas wedding. It was a beautiful wedding in a beautiful old church set in even more beauiful surroundings. Even the place cards were beautiful... decorated cookies... wow!
We didn't understand much of anything anyone said in their speeches (or in the church)... If they only had spoken "normal" german instead of "Käse Deutsch" (as my hubby calls it...) we might have stood a chance... but it didn't really matter because all the people at our table during dinner spoke english very well and we all had lots of fun.
The girls had a ball of a time. Maja was so lucky as to be allowed to hold the brides bouquet at the party... she was sooo thrilled... and they both loved the table decorations as it was big bowls filled with water, candles and rose petals... why are children always so attracted to water??
This was just a short trip, going there on Friday and coming back on Monday. But we had a great time, we even managed to squeeze in a short hike up in the mountains behind the hotel.
As for the present... the place mats... I only managed to get four of them done in time. I was up past midnight two days in a row sewing, but... I really struggled with the quilting (the thread kept breaking), so things took much longer than expected. I will finish the last two asap, and send them in the post though...
I just had to add this photo of Susie...
