I have a very dear friend who I have lived with, partied with, laughed with and cried with.
We have been good friends for many many years.
This weekend we had the privilege of spending the weekend at Waiouru Army base to celebrate her marriage to the amazing Dave.
For a wedding present what else would I give but a quilt.
|I chose the plus design.|
It's a lot of fun to make and makes good of the design wall
|I subtly ask her what her favourite colour was.|
Tourquoise - not my favourite colour and not one I had much of.
Now I am rather fond of it.
I am so pleased with the result.
|Cross Hatched quilting 1/2 apart.|
Gives great visual and tactile textile.
|It's hard to see but the entrance to the base says|
Welcome all to David and Marise's Wedding
|Great sight seeing the soldiers marching in lines|
|Our accommodation for the weekend.|
The Officer's Mess
Not the wooden bunks we were expecting.
She looked beautiful.
Just like she stepped out of Downton Abbey
|The happy couple|
|Today we were taken on a bus tour around some of the training grounds.|
And one of my lifetime dreams came true,
We saw the Kaimanawa Horses.
|The base is massive, larger than Lake Taupo and a little smaller than Singapore.|
What a fantastic weekend.
