Happy Anniversary, Bob and Mary!

Now that the gift has arrived, or at least I hope it has, I can show it on here. In between the knitting this summer I finally finished something I'd been working on for Bob and Mary for a long time.  Their fiftieth anniversary gave me a goal for finishing, and I came close but was late because we had a last minute idea.  You know how that goes?


This is the top of a little oak box.  It came without glass, but we were able to have a piece cut to size at Sunset Glass, a local shop that's helped us over the years.  Then, we had another idea, to find a way to put a label on it like you would on a quilt.   Enter this online shop!  We were really happy with the results as well as their service.



We were together a year ago in June, minus our younger daughter and her family. (She was expecting Stella then and couldn't travel.)  Their two other boys' families were not able to attend either.) Bob and Mary are just off  center.

Fifty years have passed since they said, "I do."  And now their family, including grand kids, numbers 16!  September fifth was the big day, but they've been celebrating all year long! Next year, we plan to do the same.
