I was going through my folder of saved photos and saw the first image and thought, I could easily embroider that on some fabric and give that to the Bride for her wedding present. Then I looked for more art work designed around the song lyrics and I found the above which, although simpler, had me thinking WHAT IF I BATIK THE FABRIC FIRST?! THEN IT’LL LOOK LIKE A PAINTING!
Then I thought, she’s not really a fan of octopuses, I should just give both these images to Boyfriend so he can draw her something better and more suited to her taste. Then I could stick to using a green fabric and some shade of brown for the floss to match her wedding colors ‘cause she’d love that.
I just need to figure this out and get it done over winter break because her wedding is in April and I need to get it framed before then.
A parcel arrives at the Harlow estate bearing the Stuart Shipping & Transfer seal on it. Inside is a note carefully penned and signed by Jane, her father, and Drake.

From our private stores we gift you an authentic Canthan porcelain tea set with gilt filigree, along with a box of the Lion’s Arch Standard Albion & Follet cigars. May you enjoy a good cup of a tea and a smoke after your honeymoon.

P.S. These are the same I gave you at the ceremony, captain. I saw you liked them so I ordered a box. I do hope you enjoy them.
I never know what to get couples that have been in committed relationships and living together for years who finally get married. What could I possibly give them to equip them for the challenges ahead that they don’t already have? Finally, inspiration struck.
My Zombie Survival Gift Basket from last weekend’s wedding accumulated to:
Zombie Survival Guidebook
Two-pack of flashlights + batteries
Gas masks with built-in respirator
Solar-Powered iPhone charger
The only thing that would have made it better was if I had gotten that Jello brain mold from the Halloween store. But I was running out of room toward the end. I also considered crowbars/axes, but they would have thrown off the balance of the basket.
Painkillers kicked in, and my headache feels much better now. Also, I am surrounded by middle class artefacts wedding presents, and I’m having fun finding little homes for all the new things. This is good.
