Flowers flowers everywhere

This past week it hit me that I can no longer say our wedding is a year away and put off all those things that need to be done. I'm making all of the decor and favours myself, and a dear friend is designing the invitations. I got into gear and spent a lot of time confirming bookings and booking what hasn't been, discussing ideas, and working on what I've already started.

I'm up to 33 flower pins now! About 50 more to go. One of those new fangled fabric cutting machines would be useful right about now!

It may have taken six months, and the button band may need a little fixing, but I finished my first knitted sweater. Yes, the Tea Leaves is done!

It does need some better pictures though.

I was hoping to cast-on another, much smaller sweater next, but unfortunately that will be put on the back burner for at least another month. Soon, perhaps, a pile of tiny handknits!

The Folksy Flannels quilt is probably next on the list of in-process projects that need finishing, but every time I pull it out this cat perches herself on it. This cat, she has a thing for blankets. Can't say I blame her.
