The top is finished

I completely forgot (yet again I hear you sigh!) that I'd finished this top a couple of weeks ago.

This is what it looked like when I bought it and the post tells you about my tussle with removing the original machine embroidery and what I did instead.

I'm really, really pleased with the results but now need to think about the accessories.  

I'm going to wear it to a friend's 80th birthday party next week.  Can't wait to see her and help her celebrate.  We 'grew up' our kids together half a century or more ago.  The bestest of friends who I rarely see even though she live a mere two miles away.  We both lead busy lives.

'Best bib and tucker'. I don't really know what that means, but that's what I think of. Looks great!

This is lovely! - perhaps a chunky turquoise bangle, andmatching shoes? Enjoy the birthday celebrations, old friends are to be treasured - I have seen two of mine this week, after many years and now living in different States and countries - almost too much excitement for one week!

Beautiful Blue tatting, it gives me an idea on how to embellish my lunch bag.
