Been a while…….


since I last posted, and although I have been busy, it is just general life things! Wedding, knitting, cross-stitch, reading, working and stuff!

Wedding update –

Bridesmaids dresses – the chief dress finally arrived, 5 months after ordering it! Hugh sigh of relief! The other two that were being made are coming on nicely, the colours are amazing and look stunning!

Shoes – all the wedding shoes for the ladies have arrived and they are gorgeous, do love them! Will post piccies.

Cake – we have finally finalised the design and icing and it is going to be stunning, very happy!

Everything else is just coming together nicely. All I have left to do is order my order of service booklets, thank you cards, place names, menus and table planner. Order favours and gifts and get married!

Knitting – the back of my babies jacket is finished. I have been doing loads of stash buying recently, naughty me!

We were in Peterborough this weekend, which was great, spent some time with my family! It is my brother’s birthday tomorrow, so it was nice to spend some time with him.

I have been trying to read at the moment, but I just can’t find a book I can get into! Do hope that changes soon as I miss not reading!

Well need to press on! It is 2210hrs and I have a 730am gym session!

Knitting Stash………..


So exciting, my first sock yarn bought! Not sure when I will stitch it but I have it!
The baby wool is to try some moss stitch booties out of Debbie Bliss Baby Knits for Beginners.
The First Steps is for me to just work through!
So excited, I just want to knit, knit, knit, knit, knit!!! Pity, I have work, and a wedding to plan!

Stash shopping……


I have done some stash shopping over the last two days!

Friday, I rushed to a yarn shop after work and finally bought some sock yarn, dpn’s and got a free pattern. Not sure when I will do them but I have it anyway!

Also bought Sirdar’s First Steps on Ebay and that should arrive Mon / Tues.

Today, I visited another yarn shop and bought some Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmere to try and make some booties, so looking forward to starting them!

Then tonight, I bought some knitting magazines!

How cool! Great shopping day!

Will post piccies tomorrow!

My Saturday…..


I left home at 930am for my hair trial, which went really well and looked stunning! Can’t wait for the day now, it is so close and yet so far!

Had an appointment with a lady who is going to help me with my eating disorder and that was really positive, which was good!

Tried on my wedding ring, and it looked lovely! While there I found my wedding day earrings and also a lovely watch for Si, so that was good!

Then had my nails done in the afternoon, and they look lovely!

So that was my Saturday, it was great!

Everything is coming together……..


I am now starting to feel like everything for the wedding is coming together and almost looking for what needs to be done next, rather than instinctively knowing! Which maybe is a good thing, only time will tell!

My week was good. I was in Peterborough on Wednesday for meetings, which all went well, and of course it was great to see family again!

Thursday was my knitting group and we had a meal before the group started at the pub as they had an Indian night. The food was excellent and the company was even better. I had a great time, and although there were only about 8 people at the club it was still a great evening. Got to work a bit more on my babies hat that is coming on nicely at the moment. Will have to post a piccie when I take one!

Friday, we collected the bridesmaids hair pieces and jewellery, and I am so chuffed with them both. Got to spend some time with my SIL and my nephew, which was great. My little nephew is growing up so fast and such a little chatter box it is wonderful to watch. He know says our names and asked questions etc, and it really makes me feel kinda special when he asks for me!

Saturday was the big day, of hair trials and bridesmaids trying on dresses! Both were a great success. The dresses are gorgeous and the colour is wonderful. I will post piccies when the final fitting is done so you can all see! The hair trials also went well and their hair pieces worked really well, so was well chuffed with that. I am off this Saturday for my hair trial as I did not want them to see my hair, veil or tiara. Gotta keep somethings a surprise! We also managed to buy all our shoes, which was great as I thought I was really going to struggle, but it was pretty painless. So good day after all!

Today we are off to add more items to our wedding list, and this afternoon is chill out knitting time!

Will try and post piccies later today of various things!
