Bryllup, sjal og forventninger / Wedding, shawl and expectations
Sjalet passede fint til kjolen, som I kan se, og bruden fortalte, at de havde fået nogle billeder med det hos fotografen.
Hun brugte det bare ikke til brylluppet. Jeg var godt nok noget skuffet, men må endnu engang huske, at når man forærer noget væk, så bestemmer man ikke selv over det mere. Hun var så glad, da jeg spurgte om hun ville have bryllupssjalet, at jeg ikke var i tvivl om, at hun ville have det på.
Nå. Sjalet er stadig smukt. For fremtiden har jeg dog besluttet, at der kun bliver strikket bryllupssjaler, hvis folk specifikt selv beder om det. Jeg gider ikke bruge så mange timer og kræfter på noget så smukt, hvis de bare siger ja tak for at gøre mig glad.
Alligevel var det en dejlig dag. Jeg holder forfærdelig meget af dem begge to, og ønsker dem det allerbedste for deres spritnye ægteskab!
My nephew was married yesterday. It was a wonderful, happy day, and everybody enjoyed themselves. Belgians are not as dry and boring as I thought (the bride is Belgian), and very quickly, the learned to shout HOORAY and bang the glass to make the couple kiss.
The shawl went nicely with the dress, as you can see, and the bride told me that had some nice photos with it at the photographer's.
She just never used it for the wedding. I was really disappointed, but once more I need to remember, that when you give something away, you don't decide what it's used for anymore. She was so happy when I asked if she wanted a wedding shawl, that I had no doubt she would be wearing it.
Well. The shawl is still very pretty. I have decided, though, that in the future I will only make a wedding shawl if people specifically ask for it themselves. I don't want to spend that many hours and that much effort to make something that beautiful if they just say yes to make me happy.
Still, it was a wonderful day. I do care very much about both of them, and wish them the very best for their brand new marriage!
