Miranda Roy's Baptism

A few weeks ago, I was asked to speak at Miranda's baptism. Patsy told me that it was Miranda's choice! I felt so honoured and thrilled that she had thought of me, I was on cloud nine! 

I decided I'd embroider a handkerchief for her, like my Aunt Dianne does for all the wee girls in the family, that someday she can take to the temple with her. I found an antique one, already beautifully embroidered in one corner, so I used the other corners.

My work did not turn out as nicely as I hoped.
Patsy told me the Emily in Miranda's middle name is after Emily Bronte.

The original embroidery. Much nicer than mine!

My flower's not half bad.

The date of the baptism.
The baptism itself was very nice. Vin, Patsy's oldest friend, was the other speaker. There was a musical number by Lydia (Patsy's oldest daughter) and then the baptism. Afterwards, we went to Patsy's for cake, and good company. It was a lovely day!

Miranda's cake. The top layer is the sea, with a boat on top. The bottom layers are all the fish and octopodes (we learned that the plural of octopus is not octopi after all!)

A close-up!
