Hello and welcome to Patchwork House . . . . .

Afternoon tea

This week has been a week of celebration
 as we marked my step fathers 85th and mothers 80th birthdays

the week begin with a family meal at a local restaurant
where they both enjoyed all the families coming together

then on my Mum's birthday I treated her to a vintage afternoon tea
here at Patchwork House
using my newly collected mismatched vintage china

Oh what a delight it was setting the table
 with such beautiful cups and saucers
and using the hand embroidered table cloths
 that my Mum had made in her youth

at last it was time to give her the blanket I had specially made
Emily's Garden
 has been featured in a previous blog post and you can read about it

Mum is still crocheting every day at the age of 80!
She is a gardener too and so I had created this blanket especially for her
 in her favourite colours.

She was very pleased with the gift
and I was very happy to give it to such a good home
 where I know it will be appreciated!

Everything looks lovely! I have lots of mismatched china, too! I think it's the best kind! I am planning on making my own Emily's Garden some day. Love your blog so much. Thanks for sharing :)

I love that afghan!
I also love mismatched china (but my poor mum cringes at the thought!)
More Happy Birthday! wishes to your mum and step dad!
