The upshot is, I'm alive and well, and utterly unable to keep track of the days of the week any longer. Ah well, there are worse things, right?
So here's a tiny update for you: When last we spoke, I was still in California, taking care of my newly surgerized fiance in his business-trip hotel room. I ended up flying home on Thursday, and happily they sent him home with me to heal up for a few days. He did, and is now back in California (sans appendix) working away. Phew! It's a bummer to be apart again, but I'm happy to have him healthy and be back for normal pre-wedding stress levels.
And now for the FO Friday/ Fiber Arts Friday portion of the festivities: I'm still knitting away on the wedding puffs, and despite having some serious trauma with the heart puffs (yeah, I know, there's nothing much "hexi" about them), they're coming along. Here are the first 8:
Pretty cute, no? I'm definitely getting faster at them and have high hopes for at least a couple of dozen of them hanging from the apple tree at the reception.
My other FO for this week is wedding shoes! Sounds silly, I know... but it took 5 phone calls, 1 store visit, 2 internet orders and 1 rather painful mail order return to get them done. I'd say that cements their FO status, don't you think? Anyway, here they are:
I don't love them on their own, but they're really pretty spectacular with the dress, which you'll have to wait a bit to see since Mr. Right some times reads my blog (Hi, love!). So take my word for it and I promise to share lots of pics when the time comes (44 days -- eep!)
I'd show you the invitations too, but I can't figure out how to blur the details and I don't really want to invite the whole of the internets to the wedding. Ooh! But I can maybe crop it so you can just see the design my friend made for us...
