 Hello - thought I would do a very quick post - I am on countdown as Sunday is the big day - and everything is well in hand - the flowers look beautiful on all the place settings - there will be photos next week. Our dresses are all altered and hopefully fitting still!  The lads have their suits and I am informed they all look great!!

So all is hopefully organised!! the cakes are iced the stand is ready.  The cattery is booked for the cat - she will not be happy about that!!!

I have been busy this week at work - my friend was making a similar quilt to this - and I have adapted it slightly to hers and will teach it at Art and Stitch  - I think - by the time it is finished it will be towards the end of the year.

I chose a colourful honeybun and added co-ordinating long quarters to give it a colourful boost.  This can be made with scraps - but I wanted to have it bright and colourful as I shall give it to a little six year old called Millie when it is ready to go.

Well best go and get on with it - now - next time I blog I shall be married and be Pam Winter - yeh.

Well, here we go my plan to update my blog more regularly has been failing miserably  but look how this little fellow has grown - he is now twelve weeks old and so bright and bubbly.

Caroline, Liz and I had fittings for our dresses yesterday - oh by the way it is now under three weeks to the big day - and I shall be Mrs Winter!!   Liz has lovely long hair and leo found that great fun to pull, she looks like she is laughing but I think it is was actually a very big ouch!!

Well wedding plans are going well - I have finished all the flowers, and made the place settings, just got to glue flowers to them but Rob and I plan to do that tonight.  The little favours bags are all made and need filling.  

Oh it is getting quite exciting now - dotting the 'i's' and crossing the 't's' - it will soon be with us.

Well I have been busy making this quick drunkards path quilt ready for a class on the 25th August - now just need to put some borders on.  It is lovely bright and cheerful - and I have enjoyed putting it together.

Think I have decided on the spraytime purple for the framing border so have to get started now and finish this one.

More flowers - I think I am doing them in my sleep and they are multiplying - though could have done with the magic flower maker to assist me !!

I have made this time 82 red flowers and have just six more white flowers to make.  They are going to look absolutely gorgeous on the place settings.

 In total including the original invitations - which I did ages ago - I have made approximately 280 flowers - yeh I am quite pleased with myself.

Other things are taking a backseat at present as it is one month tomorrow to the big day - we have done the seating plan, sorted music, readings and I had my dress fitting Monday and it is looking good.

Now I have the fancies to make - the cakes to ice - must be something else to do - doesn't sound much that!

Rob is busy making a toy box for Liz & Tom's three little girls  (Tom's by his marriage - they are gorgeous twins of three and Millie age 5) and I have to make a cushion for the seat - no pressure eh!!  And Caroline has put in an order for her toy box for Leo as well.

Well here is the latest picture of  Leo with his Grandpops (Rob) and Poppy looking on  well actually totally disinterested in him!!
