It's been ages!!!!!

ooooooooooohhhhhhhh Dear! I've neglected this blog for far too long!!!! Please accept my apologies. So, where have I been you might ask? (if you're still following). In May, I was sewing away in order to make more cash for the Wedding, and sold lots at another craft fayre. I celebrated my 28th birthday (with the flu) and many other birthdays in the family (we're mostly all in May). June flew. In July I was approached by Katie from Dust.co.uk and asked if I would sell some of my felt goodies wholesale to the boutique. Of course I jumped at the chance, and have sent over the first batch. I am however still sewing the full order, but will finish in a couple of days! This has kept me very busy. Will post a pic of the finished lot as soon as.

The Wedding is approaching fast, only 10 days to go!!! Time has flown. We've been making most of the deco for the wedding ourselves, so this has taken a lot of time. I made all the invites and RSVPs myself, the table deco, place settings, table layout, bonboneries and other surprises! My partner, Dan, has been putting together all the music (we have 14 hrs worth) and setting up all the lights speakers and other music related things I don't understand. He has also taken over dealing with the venue and catering as it was all stressing me out too easily!

I am just starting to get nervous about it all, mainly the organisation of the day itself, and having to look good. I usually dress like a scruff and no matter how hard I try, my appearance just never looks groomed. I'm having my hair styled by a professional (thank god) but am doing my make up myself (make up artists have made me look very orange). I'm going to the venue in the morning with a friend to set up, then after hair, am doing my, and my maid of honour's bouquets. Maybe I've taken too much on but I really want to put my heart and soul into this wedding.

That's enough wedding talk for now anyway, will post a pic afterwards for you to see. So I have made plans for afterward, when I have more time on my hands. I really want to do an exhibition of my felt work, a crazy event with all kinds of felt foods. I've giving myself an estimated time to get this done of next Christmas. I will then have to seek out a venue that will display it. Although a Christmas grotto of foods sounds like a fab exhibit. I am desperate to try out potato waffles, corn on the cob and crinkle fries. Also some basic stuff like sushi and fortune cookies. Maybe I'll look into kids food of the 80s?!! I would still love to do a classic jelly, but am still thinking out how to produce the pattern for that!

Anyway, I've rambled on for quite a bit now, so will leave it there and remember to post that pic of the order before its sent off!!!
