So much busy-ness!

by Helen on March 16, 2014

Rosie came to visit this weekend with her friend Naomi (aka Maid of Honour/Chief Bridesmaid).  With only just over 3 months until THE BIG DAY there was a lot to do and a great deal of busy-ness.  We visited the church and met with the flower ladies, while my new overlocker (serger) was put to very good use indeed ….

Wedding invitations!!  They are so beautiful – we are very pleased indeed with them.  Rosie originally wanted to print the invitations on an assortment of vintage hankies – but fell in love with a particular pretty little pink floral one.  So we scanned it, played around with photoshop for a while and when it was just right we uploaded the file and ordered several dozen from Spoonflower, printed onto Kona cotton.  Then more to do when the fabric arrived – cutting out the individual hankies and overlocking the edges with just the right shade of pink thread (very carefully chosen). Above are the finished results and we think they’ll make lovely keepsakes for the guests too.

As well as hankies, Rosie brought her pompom maker for me to borrow as I needed to make some bunny tails for my “Whoops! Bunny” project for the April magazine ….

Very fluffy!!  It’s amazing how much fluffiness you can achieve with the help of Ben & Daisy’s slicker brush!  We also practised our ganache-making skills – Rosie wants some chocolate ganache mice and bunnies to enjoy with coffee at the end of her wedding meal …..

They’ll be great for Easter too – I’ll include the recipe in the April magazine for chocaholics everywhere!  And it’s no wonder that with all this busy-ness going on, a certain young Newfie (who absolutely has to join in every activity) was totally worn out by the time Rosie & Naomi left earlier this evening ….

She’s so cute when she’s asleep.  But when she’s awake – a proper little pickle!!
