60 year old wedding dress

As mentioned in my last post my Mum and Dad had their 60th Wedding Anniversary and we had a celebratory lunch at one of my sisters places on the weekend. Mum brought her wedding dress to have on display and I don't think I had ever seen it. It was beautiful, even though it had a few dirt marks around some of the edges. The lace was so fine. Her are a couple of pics of it.
The following picture is my Mum and Dad with their 2 friends who were their bridesmaids at the wedding.
And Mum and Dad after they cut their cake....aaawww!!
Here in the Riverland region of South Australia we have finally got water flowing back in the Murray River. It is flooding in some parts, but not threatening floods that are effecting homes or anything. In Loxton the riverfront road is currently closed and the lower part of the caravan park is under water. The caravan park is still very operational as they moved all the cabins up to the higher area where there are many sites as well. Here are some photos down by the caravan park.

I haven't done any craft or made over anything since November, so I was looking back on photos to see what I could show you!!  Here is a wall quilt that I made on the spur of the moment a while ago. It hangs near my recliner.

The wedding dress is quite lovely, my mother has kept her dress also although it isn't quite as old (54yo) I used to be able to fit into it once :)

How wonderful to still have your mum's wedding dress.. it's beautiful! I still have mine, but it's only 22 yrs old. My daughter tried it on a while ago and I teared all up! I can't believe all these floods we're having everywhere, thankfully yours wasn't so devasting. I think your quilt is just so adorable and I love all the pinks! take care, Maryann
