Kneeling and ring cushions for weddings

A client of mine phoned me on Wednesday 19 December asking me if would be possible to make 2 sets of kneeling cushions with the accompanying ring bearers cushions for weddings today, Saturday the 22nd. 

With such short notice, I immediately started working.  Thursday she phoned again asking if I could deliver one set the same afternoon!  As I was still far from finished (I had to drive around the shops buying the necessary supplies also), we decided that I would deliver one set on Friday morning and the other set Saturday morning. 

With my overlocker out of order, I had to do everything the old fashioned way which was a lot more work and very time consuming.  The frills needed for all 6 cushions was approximately 20m in length...

This set was finished Friday morning at 03h00 and delivered on time.  I asked my husband to photograph the set with some close ups, but he was in such a hurry that most of the photo's are blurred.  He also did not notice that he set the Ipad on video, so these photo's is about all there is.

The embroidery was done in white with silver lace and ribbon.

After getting a few hours sleep, I started with the next set finishing them 24h00 Friday night. 
This set was done in white and gold.

Assimina from Crown Catering was absolutely thrilled!  I can only hope that the people hiring these sets, will appreciate it and take good care of them.  I am extremely pleased with the end result and think they are gorgeous.  I was however extremely tired.  At this rate I will need a holiday once this one is finished...
