My week so far and today's wedding....

It's been a very hectic week here. On Wednesday I went to sewing class and finished attaching all of my shapes to the different fabrics. I didn't manage to get them all cut out, but I got a bit more than half cut out, and hope to finish them over the next few days while I am waiting for Kasey to finish school. Thursday morning was Embroidery club, and we were shown how to make a very cute owl completely in the embroidery hoop. The class is next Thursday, so I am going to make one to applique on to a dress or shirt for Kasey. I had a real hiccup with the wedding flowers this week, they were supposed to be delivered on Thursday, but did not turn up until Friday morning, and it was a very big wedding, so I was really under the hammer on Friday trying to get it finished off. I did get it done, but it was a big effort, as there was 10 wedding bouquets to do as well and buttonhole flowers and a corsage and throwaway bouquet. I also couldn't start the wedding until nearly lunchtime on Friday as I needed to give the flowers a really good drink as they had been out of water for so long, and I had to condition them, and the flowers had been stressed, so all of the lovely foliage fell off, and I had to end up having to pick foliage from the garden for them, so I wasn't entirely happy with the end result. My supplier will be getting a serve from me on Monday...grrr....anyway, the bride was very happy with everything, which is the main thing in the end. I have been coming down with some sort of cold/flu bug over the last couple of days, and I am developing a cough which I think may turn nasty, as it feels like it is coming from very deep in my chest. I have decided I am having a day off tomorrow, may have a pyjama day I think!....other than the washing which needs to be is today's wedding for Amanda:


  1. The flowers still look wonderful and you wouldn't know they arrived in not top condition. Look after yourself and try and beat the bug before it takes hold.
