I really wish I had a photo of Nathalie's dress. She had this gorgeous wrap/train which had nunofelted leaf/petal pieces all over it. It was white on white. She made it with the assistance of a parent from school who does beautiful felt work.
Thursday night before the wedding I attended a blessing for the bride to be. I made Nathalie a gift that was just for her, a journal cover.
Yes, it does seem a bit whimsical and fun for a bride-to-be gift. It has a blank journal inside the cover, and the idea was that she could make any journal her own. I personally enjoy having a book to put whatever I want in there, even if sometimes it's just lists. I also embroidered her name on the inside, so her girls couldn't try to claim it as their own.
Unfortunately I was paying more attention to the angle of the LOVE embroidery and not enough attention to its position on the cover, so it's much closer to the spine than I intended. Next time I will be more careful. I am thinking of making a few covered journals to sell at the next Lorien Markets.
