Happy WOYWW. Things are beginning to settle down and those of you who read regularly will know we had a bit of a crisis with my dad. He is on the mend, but it will take a while. So, I thought I would share some photos of why my dad is brilliant as I think you crafty lot will appreciate them.
|My dad (seated) is a Silversmith, who uses traditional methods.|
|He has made very special things like this (Cuthbert's Cross) for very special people, like Bishops and Royal people and me.|
|A replica of St Cuthbert's Banner hangs in Durham Cathedral. Can you see all the bells and the silverwork and the cross atop? My dad did all of that.|
|There was a big ceremony to present the Banner and my dad was involved in the procession (on the right with a dark suit and white hair).|
|The procession went right through Durham, up to our beautiful Cathedral. Can you spot dad now?|
|I am so proud that something my dad made will live on long after we are all gone... and I am so glad that I still have him.|
Give someone a hug today, jenx
