And breathe .....

Calm has been restored !
It seems a week off work was exactly what was needed.
I have tidied, sorted, finished off some patterns and tutorials, ticked things off the
wedding To Do list and I have even managed to make the
 smallest of dents in the ironing pile.
There can be nothing nicer than that feeling of being ever so slightly back in control and not
 running around manically as I was when I wrote my last post !
 The last thing that I wanted to get done this weekend was to start laying
 out the Wedding Garland I am making to see how much more needed to be done,
and yay, I don't have to make 500 billion more roses after all !
Big result.
 I am very nearly there with what I have made already and only a
 handful remain to be made.

So, I have packed up my gorgeous Just Pootling bag - a very, very lovely Birthday
present from Immi - and have everything ready to hand for a quick bit of rose production
should I have the odd five minutes here and there at work this week.

With just one more week of work to go before we are full steam ahead in to final wedding preparations I am going to love you and leave you for a couple of weeks and will be back to full Pootling at the beginning of September.
If you are off on your hols have a fantastic time and I look forward to lots of swapping of photo's very soon.




  1. Glad you had such a productive week, I love that feeling of getting things under control. I hope the final things go well and that the wedding is a really wonderful day. Good luck all! CJ xx

  7. I know just what you mean. Even a few days to get back on top of things and regain control can make so much difference to how we feel about things. I hope the wedding is wonderful! xx
