Wedding bells...

Lately I have been stitching like there is no tomorrow. Nicola kindly allowed me to borrow Garden Pleasures. So I started it as a little break from all the RRs I've ended up with.

I think it's quite funny that someone lends someone something from one side of the world to the other. Apart from showing how kind stitchers are to one another, it also goes to show how small the world has become with the internet, email etc.

As for the title of this post... yesterday OH and I decided to finally set a wedding date. So by the time we wed on 21 February 2009, I'll have known him 10 years, we'll have been together 8 years and we'll have been engaged for AHEM... seven years! lol

Hope you are having a good start to the week.

Congratulations on setting your date... how exciting!

Kathy A. said...

congrats to you my girl. And they said it would never last. Do you need a slightly overaged bridesmaid from a foreign country? LOL. Have fun with those wedding plans.
You are such a tease. Now, I will have to haunt my poor mail person until your package arrives.

Hi Rowyn,

Congratulations on setting the
date for your wedding. Hope that
all your plans run smoothly and
it'll be a wonderful and memorable
day for you and your OH.

The Prairie Schooler pattern that
your stitched for Stephanie turned
out beautifully, and it looks really
cute made into a pillow. Nice work.
It's such a cute pattern too. I
really love the card that you made
too. Very sparkly. It matches
the colours in the stitched piece
too. Did you plan that???

I love your idea of putting a book
together with your ancestors
pictures for your new nephew/niece.
It'll be a real treasure for the
newest member of the family to keep.
But be warned, if it turns out as
well as I expect it will you may be
asked to make a half dozen more,
for other family members.

Lovely pictures of Spring arriving
in your part of the world. Blue
skies, sunshine and delicate blooms
appearing on the bushes. And the
pool looks quite inviting. Tiggy
looks pretty content hopping
around in her pen.
