Ta daaaaaa

At last, some time & the computer working OK.
Here are some snaps of the Chasuble being made...

Here it is being tried on....Christmas eve.

Anne & I are slowly unfolding the altar cloth. Careful.....careful.Here is the Rev. Nigel showing us his get-up.And here with the proud maker.....
And here with lovely Sue, who helped pay for the new vestments, and little Patrick, the small boy who will see it in use for many years to come. (Standing in his best & most pious pose).
He's the little boy who said my singing made him feel tired. It was so amazing walking in to church that evening & seeing it all lit by candles. There were even special candle holders for the choir so we could see properly. All of us dressed in red.

Clarissa, Joe & baby Zebedee came & made our Christmas complete. They snuck in at the last minute. I had worded Nigel up just in case they came. I gave him this article to read from the Norfolk paper.
He did the most brilliant job. Got all the facts right & made them both cry for a good 15 minutes or so. I could hardly walk down the aisle for tears. I'd spent a long time praying for this very event to happen & for it to happen on Christmas was just the icing on the cake.

I don't have any pictures of them at the Church but I do have these from Christmas evening when they came over to our house for a game of "Settlers of Catan" and a bloody good laugh.

Yay! Yay! Yay!

She's back and with lots of lovely pictures. The vestments are simply gorgeous and baby Zebedee looks wonderful.

Sounds like your Christmas dreams came true!
