When I was working with the fabric I used for Arrine’s holiday dress, it reminded me of my father’s marriage proposal to amm. The story goes that he bought her some fabulous fabric from her favourite fabric store. He had placed the ring inside and presented her with the bolt of fabric. amm loved the fabric but became a bit annoyed when Charles asked, then insisted that she open the fabric up. I can just see amm answering Charles with frustration in her tone, “I don’t need to open the fabric up. I can see it just fine, all folded up.” But of course in the end she opened it and said yes.

I am sure that Charles could add a few more details or correct me where my memory of the story isn’t quite correct…
