As Promised The Most Lovely Wedding Gifts!

I must say when I originally asked for help via my blog for surprise wedding presents for 'Mr. G' I really didn't think I'd get that much response, let alone actual gifts!

I'd left the timescale tight and was really just looking to bounce a few ideas about, the generosity of my this online community just stokes me and the presents we received were amazing. 'Mr. G' loved all of them and couldn't believe that people we'd 'never met' would do something so lovely for him.

So to showcase the gifts I made a mosaic of photographs.....

Now I've messed about with the mosaic maker at BigHugeLabs for long enough and I cannot get the little bit at the bottom of my mosiac that tells you what all the pictures are and links to where they are from. (If anyone knows how to do this properly please message me for future reference!!)

So without further ado, left to right, top to bottom we have::

1. Handmade Wedding Chalkboard - Courtney @ Seamstar
2. Wooden Sewing Box - Lynne of Lily's Quilts and Mandy of Simply Solids
3. Wooden Name Heart - Jo of Muddy Puddle Crafts
4. Momo Travel Wallet - Courtney @ Seamstar
5. Wedding Cushion - Louise of Sew Scrumptious
6. Fabric Trays - Nadine of Quilted Bliss

These gifts were so very thoughtful, well made and just lovely and all have taken pride of position in our home where they are really cherished! For further descriptions please check out my flickr.

We also received another beautiful wedding gift from my lovely friend Amanda. This gift has been made all the more poignant today as Amanda has decided to give up blogging due to really stressful and quite horrible things going on in her personal life which involves others using her blog against her, those who read her blog will no doubt know who I am refering to. Those who have no idea, trust me its a massive loss to our lovely little community.

Here is the divine hoop she made us::

Wedding Hoop By Amanda Makes.
The hoop is actually me and 'Mr.G' on the beach on our wedding day. Seriously it is, the likeness is spooky.

Well it's back to work tomorrow. Boo Hoo! 

I hope to do another post on Sunday as I have a couple of new fabric acquisitions to share with you (I know, I know) as well as a couple of new stuffed friends.
