I am so pleased to report that the 50th anniversary sweaters were safely delivered to the honorees, Constance and Amworth Antonio. Here is a picture of the couple, wearing their new sweaters, with their son, Jean-Pierre, who commissioned them.
It was the first time I had met Jean-Pierre's parents, who proved to be a lovely couple indeed. I know JP has charted his own path in life, but he must have had pretty strong roots to be the solid, generous, talented, thoughtful and unique individual he is.
I am blessed to have a friend like him. Big hugs, JP!
And blessing to the Antonios, who celebrate 50 years together. I needed to draw on their example of patience, perseverence, creativity, faith and a sense of humour to make these sweaters. It was a great honour to be able to create these special garments for them.
