The last 2 weeks have been difficult. My fiancé’s car died, so we decided to carpool until he could find a new one. Carpooling is hard. You wouldn’t think it would be, but it is. All that extra car time and getting up early gets in the way of my beauty sleep. And when I don’t get enough sleep I’m a grumpy-pants. But, Hallelujah, the carpooling is over now! We bought a Mazda Miata for him to drive.
It’s going to be a great wedding getaway car!
(I’m at that stage in wedding planning where everything comes back to the wedding)
I am absolutely bogged down with wedding planning, but I had to make sure to show you my wedding shawl
er my wedding shawl plans.
Pattern: Waiting for Rain by Sylvia Bo Bilvia
Yarn: Ella Rae Lace Merino in Natural, and Feza Yarns Harvest in Cherry
I have been meaning to start a wedding binder to keep myself organized and
sane less crazy over the next few months. As we have discussed before, I am cheap, and the idea of spending $15 or more on a sparkly, pretty binder made me sad. I was sure I could do it myself. And I did.
Materials: 1 used 3″ binder (black), 1 worn out t-shirt (complete with pretty flowers), 1 Velcro tie thingy, leftover fabric from a previous project, lots of hot glue, tatting.
Time: 1 hour (ish)
…that planning a wedding is harder than it seems?
Married people out there and other brides: what are your favourite sanity-savers when it comes to planning your big day?
Like most girls – well, like most people – I dream of someday getting married. I don’t see this happening anytime soon, since I am about as single as they come. But that doesn’t stop me from dreaming. I dream about my wedding dress, and the music I will include. I dream of the time of day (or night) when my wedding will take place, and plan who to ask to be my bridesmaids. Now you know me: I will be making something for my wedding. I’m not brave enough to make my wedding dress. I’ve thought of tatting my bouquet so I can save it for forever, but there’s something about real flowers that is impossible to capture in another medium. One thing I have decided, though: I will knit my wedding veil. Would you like to see it? This is Goldenregen, designed by Herbert Niebling.
I think it is some of the most beautiful lace I have ever seen. And I want it for myself. It will be beautiful, and I will be beautiful in it. Now I just need to learn how to knit lace….
