This is just a quick post to say a massive congratulations to my fab friends El and Paul. All I can say is it’s about time Mr Jaquin!! I am so happy and excited for one of my best friends, and can’t wait to hear all about the wedding plans (I’ve got a strong suspicion it will be anything but conventional.) I’m having withdrawal symptoms after all the handmade preps for my own last year, and if I’m not invited then I’ve just invited myself.
You may have seen my last minute attempts at bunting for my joint 60th party with my friend Vicky, and I’ve had a few requests to see it in-situ, so here it is. I am pleased to say it even survived the Ceilidh dancing… just need to decide what to do with 21m of bunting now – anyone interested?
Also, I’d just like to say thank you to Heart my Closet and Made by Mada for my fab handmade dress and earrings (had to get a new handmade birthday outfit of course!)
Anyone following my blog this time last year will know about the 50m of bunting that I made for my wedding, so when I thought about bunting for my party this weekend 28m seemed like nothing! Oh, how I was wrong – it’s taken me 2.5 days to do 3/4 of it. I think I underestimated how much recovering from surgery takes out of you and how much slower I am, especially with the lack of concentration. I could stop with what I’ve done but now I’ve set my goal I am determined to reach it. Above are the first 3 runs and I’ve started 1/3 of the fourth and final length but then I have to sew all the triangles to the bias binding, I may be here a while…
