Mr and Mrs – A Modern Cross Stitch Wedding Sampler

Ideally today Mr M and I would currently be enjoying the sunshine in the Lake District, celebrating the wedding of a couple of our friends. Those in the UK will be aware that the last Monday in May is usually a bank holiday, but this year due to celebrations for the Queen’s diamond jubilee that bank holiday has been moved. Unfortunately our friends were unaware of this when they booked their wedding a couple of years ago. If Monday was a bank holiday attending a wedding six hours drive from here on a Sunday would be fine, but as I’m a teacher and can’t take time off, we had to say we couldn’t come. The couple were very understanding (Mrs works in a school, so knows!) and we’re not the only couple who’ve not been able to come for the same reason.

Despite not going to the wedding I still wanted to give them a personalised wedding present. I decided to sew them a sampler, but didn’t think they’d want anything too traditional. I’m hoping that I’ve guessed the purple colour scheme correctly (it is the bride’s favourite colour and the invitations had a purple theme). Anyway, here it is…


It is safely in their house after Mr M delivered it when he went to the stag do. I can’t wait until they open it and let me know what they think.
