For my friends' wedding present I brought them an Emma Bridgewater teapot with hearts scattered all over it and to make it a bit more personal, I knitted them a tea cosy to match. This wasn't as easy as it sounds as the original pattern I was going to use was too small, so I discarded it and went free-form and I'm really pleased with the result.
Our friends were married on Saturday and everyone had a wonderful day; even the weather was amazingly sunny and warm, which meant that we could all take some super photos.

****Changing the subject to my recent finds, I haven't brought much over the past week or so, apart from a very jolly vintage St. Michael pinny, which now washed and starched will be used when cooking for friends for that 'hostess with the mostess' look:
... and I also brought a Grindley Peach Petal jug and matching bowl:
