To top it up, my daughter was married in October. Following are some photos of the event.

The marriage solemnisation was conducted earlier in the day.

The one on the right was my tatting buddy when we were 10yo.

I decided to be different and asked a friend who makes soap to make some egg-shaped soaps. These are the blue ones that you can see in the past photo above. Instead of netting, I tatted the egg pouches used to hold the eggs. Well, what can you expect from a tatter!
It took me about seven months to that 150 pieces of the egg pouches. I tatted when I went to Japan, and when I was in Norway, Sweden and Finland. I only did the tatting pouches while the flowers, which are made of crepe paper, were ordered earlier because paper craft is beyond me.
All things done, it was a beautiful reception and everyone appears to be having a very good time.
