Wedding schmedding

The bouquet progresses... A number of people have asked me how this would work out and here is my solution: a big square of red polka dot with loose running stitch sewn in a circle, start to gather it up to form a neck and start stuffing with whatever you have handy. Stuffing maybe. But laddered tights work well too (clean ones). Use twice as much as you think you'll need, pull the neck tight and sew a few stitches through the neck to make it secure. You'll end up with something like this, which Pooch felt was rather inappropriate for him to model.

Then I got all my flowers that I have been working on and started pinning them to the base with common or garden pins.

It still needs some work, not least in that it's a bit of a mess of different yarns and fibres. Need to have a think about it, but overall I'm happy with the concept.

A couple of people have asked about the wedding list and there is one, which just happens to contain some knitting goodies, over here. And the email address our list is under is mrandmrswhittakerathotmaildotcodotuk. Make sure you pay most attention to my bit of the list, as Pooch already has far too much stuff.

OK, have stopped laughing, and am reminded of this lolcat I posted in one of my previous posts.

Am having a bit of a hysterical afternoon. I blame the fatigue from being a support crew to a team on the 100km walk over the weekend and the unscheduled pepsi max break this afternoon. Gone right to my head...

The bouquet is superb! Brilliant idea, m'dear.

Oh... still not sure if I can make the Hen festivities, as the next photo shoot could be on that day....

Would never have occurred to me to do the bouquet that way and looks great :) When is the actual day or have I missed a post mentioning it?

I love the idea of the bouquet. It sounds (and looks!) ace!

And I just showed hubby your lolcat - he laughed because it could easily be a picture of him talking to me!
