The Wedding, again

Here is a picture of the bride, and her groom. There are over 400 pictures to choose from, so it's a little difficult to pick out the best one, but I have done my best.

The Wedding

The bride was beautiful, with long loose curls, her hair down and blowing in the wind that was getting up. She was holding hand of her little seven year old cousin, (actually her cousins 7yo daughter), and was carrying a small bouquet of flowers. She was wearing a red dress, with a smoky blue coat. Both were in the Medieval style. Her father was walking right alongside her, in his costume, and he was very good looking. He looked a bit like Henry VIII!
The groom took one look at this beautiful vision walking towards him, and the tears started. He looked very good in his knights costume, with a court jester by his side, and three knights standing in attendance.
The bride was attended by her senior bridesmaid, who wore a blue dress, with red ribbon, and carrying a small bouquet of white roses.Then another bridesmaid, also in blue, with red ribbon, and also carrying white roses. There were also two flower girls, dressed in red, and also carrying white roses. One of the flower girls was holding the brides hand, and other was leading the bridal party. The music was Westlife, Flying without wings.
The guests were dressed in costume, as requested by the bride. There were a few that weren't able to dress up, but those that did looked really good. The ceremony was touching, and not too long. The photos were all outside, among the grape vines, and the bride shone through it all.

Counting Down

Only four more days to the wedding of my daughter, and I still have to get my dress finished. Why am I not sewing now you ask; because I was taking tissue paper out of line of stitching. I've sewn braid onto a lacy fabric, which is for the bottom part of the sleeves. Because the lace is so fine,I used tissue paper, to give the needle something to 'grip'. It's worked really well, too; I just needed to gently rip it out. Now the second sleeve to do, then attach them to the upper sleeve, and the hem, and the dress is finished - this is the last bridesmaids dress. Then it's on to my dress, which only has the front bodice part done. At least I've done all the interfacing, though.

Hope this works, part 2

Ok, so that did work, I am impressed. I think I need to put it up on my blog, on the sidebar.
I know, I'm talking to myself - a habit I got into a long time ago. LOL
Today, I hope to spend most of the day sewing. I really need to concentrate on the dresses for the wedding, and then I can also concentrate on my own dress. Sad to say, the housework is suffering somewhat while I do the sewing. I have to find the time to do everything. Not enough hours in the day.

Hope this works

Pic of me

I have finally added a picture of myself. I look really serious, I know, but it's serious business getting your picture taken!!! hahaha

Anyway, here is a picture of myself, with a couple of friends, before my haircut.

New look me

I tried this last night, but it didn't work. Lets hope it goes through today. I have a new look - short hair. I've had it all pretty much all cut off, and really like the new look. It was a spur-of-the-moment thing, but I really don't regret getting it done. I will get a picture taken later today, and see about getting it up here.
On the knitting front, I've now finished three cloths in the last three days. Am now working on a hooded scarf from the Lionbrand website. I've also taken some things off the needles, just decided that I really wasn't that into them. Others, that are still languishing will be attended to sometime. Part of their problem, I dont know where I've put their pattern. I'm sure I will be able to track them down, though. Then, maybe, I will have most of my needles back.

It has been decided that this bloh of mine isn't a spam one after all. I am very grateful for that. I was a tad concerned about whether I'd ever be able to post anything.
I'm actually going through a scarf knitting stage at the moment, encouraged by the cold weather. The scarf I have on the needles at the moment is one done with two sizes of needles. The needles I am using are 5mm, and 12mm. It is done in garter stitch, and you do a whole row of one set of needles, and a whole row in the other size. It makes the scarf look lacy, without the work involved. You can really use any wool, any needles.

Something finished....

I recently finished somehing, but have to , reknit it, because I must have missed something in the casting off', as it is starting to unravel. The horrible thing? This was knitted on 15mm needles, in feathers like yarn, AND eyelash type of yarn. I DO NOT want to redo this, but know I have to. Instead, in disgust, I've gone and started the log cabin blanket from the Mason Dixon Knitting book. I will actually post a picture of my 'mess' before fixing the silly thing. It loked so nice, too!!

I am still here.

I thought a post was well overdue. I've actually still got photos that I need to get organised, and loaded up here. Since starting work, I've not had a lot of time to post, or to do much of anything else for that matter. I'm STILL trying to get more organised - not an easy thing to do for someone who isn't really an organised person!!
Even my knitting has be languishing, but that is changing. I'm doing it for about ten minutes before heading off to work, and sometimes, but not often, in the evening. I think thats why my stole had mistakes in it, because I had left it for too long, and it was feeling very left out. Mistakes are fixed, and we are back on speaking terms again - I've promised I wont leave it for so long again - unless I get distracted by something else - not that I told the stole that!!!
My job has changed. I'm now a One on One sales person. Which means I get a commission on certain things that I sell. Its more pressure, because you have to meet a sales target each day, and I've only met it once this week, yesterday being a REALLY quiet day. Actually, so was Monday. I like the department I am in now, though, the day goes really fast there. It is the furniture, and small appliances department. More paperwork, you also get to spend a little more time with customers - hence the One on One title.
Anway, I must away. Gotta get dressed, do some shopping - wool shopping that is - and other boring things to do.
