With only 4 weeks to the big day (and I'm still in full flow of the wedding diet ...I'm desperate for cake but it is working so I shouldn't complain ...but only 4 weeks to cake!) Anyways, Abs and I have been turning our attention to decorating the Church Hall for the reception (where there will be cake!) :) and so of we went shopping ....again !
We've bought lace and chocolate cotton voile fabrics for table runners, (for the tables laden down with cake!) then a mixture of chocolate, blush and ivory linen and lace fabrics for bunting and bias binding .... I finished sewing the table runners (for the cake tables!) at the weekend, and just have the lace to trim and hem next. My rotary cutter has been humming away slicing fabrics (sadly not cake!) for bunting ...even had to buy some new rotary blades ..hahaha
The 'Bride-to-be' has been working hard too ...
I took time out last week to finally put my Spring decorations away and get my Summer Raggedy and Prim and Prairie dolls out :) ...
Ooops I can see that I've forgotten to take my Spring Mafia Bunny stitchery down ..hehehe Also there is a new Raggedy doll on the piano, but as testament to how many there are I can't remember which one it is! :O I think its the one in the middle with the fringe ....Ooooh hubby will probably have something to say about not recognising the new one ...hehehe Also I've noticed that there are only 2 prim black Prairie Dolls on top of the dresser ...there should be 3! I didn't realise that my sneaky Angel could reach that high! (Mim is the sneaky one, just in case you are wondering ...hehehe) I'll need to have a hunt around for my poor missing prairie doll :))
No hand sewing happening, nil, nada, zilch ... :( Although I do have a woolly sunflower wall hanging idea floating around my head ... kind of based on the same style of the Cottage Creek Designs that I have a few of. Its just a floating idea at the moment and more than likely won't actually come to fruition ...especially with all that bunting to make! :)
And talking of bunting ...it won't make itself ...how many metres left to make did I say we had ??
Love Wendy x x
