The preparations gather pace ….

I can hardly believe it – just six – yes SIX weeks left until THE BIG DAY!!  I don’t know where the last year has gone, time has just flown by, moving ever faster as we hurtle towards Rosie & Dan’s wedding day on 28th June.  And there’s still so much left to do!  This morning, had anyone been watching, they would have seen me in the summerhouse, with a snowstorm of notes around me, trying to organise my to-d0 list…..

Stacking up the coffee cups as I shuffled, reshuffled, crossed-out and annotated my notes.  The mint leaves in the teapot aren’t for tea, but rather to help keep bugs away – quite successfully too I’m pleased to report.  After a while, the organising became all rather too much, so I decided to take a break and try out my bunting idea for the kitchen instead …..

Apologies for the poor image quality, it was a bit dark and I was using my phone.  I have now worked out that I need strings of 10 flags to cross the room from side to side – now all I need to decide is how many strings to use, then add bunting-making to my list!  My bedding plants arrived today too.  We have grown quite a lot from seed, but after planting out it became apparent that a few more were needed …..

They’ll need planting out very soon indeed, but that’s a nice relaxing, fun task! I also had a lot of fun making a couple of new cushions for Rosie & Dan earlier this week – another project for the June issue of the Bustle & Sew Magazine ….

Mr Right and Mrs Always Right!!  I’ve seen quite a few Right and Always Right ideas online, but this is my own version – hope you like them – and that Rosie & Dan will too!

It’ll soon be here!
The bunting and the cushions look absolutely fabulous.
Must try the mint idea, I usually have citronella tea light. Think I might get a pot of mint to keep in the kitchen

Thanks Jasmine. I would have to say that Ben is almost always good, whilst Daisy almost always isn’t! Good thing we love her x
