To 20 more years.

On 14 February this year, my grandmother Rae and her lovely partner (now wife) of 20 years, Pip, got married in Birkenhead. It was a beautiful ceremony, for a amazing couple. Rae is my step grandmother, and in the few short years I have known her, she and her family have been overwhelmingly welcoming and generous. So I made this small token of my affection, albeit very lately (I did start it well before hand, but life got in the way of me finishing it in time). I plan on giving it to them on Friday at a family lunch, I hope they like it. And if they don't, they are kind enough to pretend otherwise!
So, to Rae and Pip, I thank you for being so wonderful, and heres to the next twenty+ years. I hope they are as wonderful as you deserve.
A note on the x stitch. It was a image I found on the net somewhere, and altered it, using a combintation of knit pro and playing it by air. I think the tree could of done with more leaves, and there were a few more things I wanted to do. But when I sketched them into the pattern I had made, it looked far too busy, so I went with basic. Perhaps to basic, but the squirrels were the main point, and they turned out well.
