Double Wedding Ring Quilt.. quilted!

Yes, yes..
It took long enough. But thanks to my mom my double wedding ring quilt is completed and in a much fancier way than I could ever hope to achieve. For my birthday my mom had it professionally quilted and it looks so good on my bed! check out the detail below!

even the wrapping on Andrea's gift was amazing!
Mary gave me her gift partly before my birthday... an amazing summer dress and some winter/fall fingerless gloves which I used right away. I will take a picture.

Did you get up for it?

So how many of you got up early Friday morning to watch the wedding? It was on at a (reasonable) 6am here in Toronto - but I know that Mary was up at 3am in Whitehorse.
I for one, am glad I saw it - the dress the hats - everything was lovely.
I'm including some of the official photos from the official British Monarchy flickr site.

also you should check out the full size version of this one - for Harry's expression alone

the full size version of the above picture is so cool - check out the people in the fountain they look so happy

finally I couldn't leave it without mentioning the cake! wow! definitely check out the larger version for all the details and there is also a set of the just the cake. pretty amazing!
