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!)|
