Wedding Update

The weather yesterday was quite bright so I could have gone out for a stroll or into the garden, but for some reason I felt that I wanted to tie up all the loose ends of the wedding.  I therefore spent the afternoon pottering around in the craft room putting the finishing touches to projects and packing everything up ready for the big day.

The bike needed the handles finishing off so that was job number one.

Bound with natural twine and fancied up a little to give the perfect finish.
The brooch pins were stitched onto the crochet buttons holes for the little boys and elastic threaded onto the bow ties which were redone as we had a change of heart with regard to the colour.

Little jobs that are now finished so that everything is ready to go.  To that end I also  started to pack things up so they could be transported to the venue easily.

The confetti cones are the only thing left to do and so there is no pressure near the time I intend to get them done this week.  We are ready....
How did you spend your Sunday?
See you soon.

    1. I think I am my daughter hasn't lived at home since leaving home for university several years ago so its a natural progression. We have made a box for the front of the bike which will be filled with flowers.

  7. You have created so many treasures to help celebrate the wedding, Mama! And your organization is impressive and inspiring, too.
