My youngest grandchild was being christened on Sunday but just the previous Thursday afternoon I learned that I would need to host the post christening party in my home. So I rallied round and shopped and cooked.
When we got home I laid out the food
I didn’t get to take any pictures after that as I was too busy being a good hostess.
But everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and we had a great afternoon.
The cake was very popular with everyone trying to work out if there was a cake they could have with their initial. I also packed up a few in kitchen paper for people to take home because they wanted another but didn’t have room!
Here is a close up of the lace.
I don’t know how many hours it took to complete but it was a lot!
My mother also made me a ‘Christmas’ cloth with a slightly simpler lace edging.
They are murder to iron but oh so beautiful. I would never have the patience to do the same.
