Been a while…….

Standard

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………..

Standard





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……

Standard

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…..

Standard

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!
