We had Amelie's Baptism on Sunday and it was a wonderful day. Although the day was extremely hot, we managed to fit everyone into our house and keep relatively cool. Amelie was not baptised in the beautiful dress my grandmother made for me when I was baptised, as it was too hot. Instead we had her in a lovely little outfit, but it had to be removed by the end of the ceremony as this was too hot for her as well. The food was good, I really cooked up a storm, and the cake even better. The cake was a continental cake and it was just delicious. It was extra special day as I had a few people come from interstate especially for this occasion.
I managed to get one of my little WIPs out of the way. It's a small scissor fob. I didn't do the specialty stitching around the edge as I had tried the faggot stitch about half a dozen times and after so much frogging out, I gave up and just used plain old back stitching instead.
