I didn't get as much accomplished as I wanted/needed today. By far.
The day has been made much better though by the reception of a parcel by the ever-marvelous-and-fabulous heileen
. I'll post pictures after the wedding. It's AWESOME ! *grabs heileen
and hugs her* Thank you sooooooOOOOoooo much ! <= Can you tell I'm really exctied about your gift ? :D
Than I found A) some black fabric to complement a pink and black flower printed voile I got for a maternity dress (voile from Mondial Tissus's bargain table, black fabric 1 euro/meter), and B) some pretty pretty wool for 1 euro/skein. Both at a market near where I used to live before the Home Geek came around. Although I don't regret the single days, I wish the market was closer to our house.
Funnily enough, we passed another market on the way home, and spotted another yarn seller. There seem to be a new trend for cheap yarn. *evil grin* There were lots of fluffy novelty yarns, but also some basics. I got enough acrylic/mohair mix to knit myself a sweater or the like. The yarn is soooooo soft and airy, I love it !
Other than that, the day was spent tidying up and cleaning the house - a much needed task. With the Darkstone's help, I got as far as tackling the thread compartment of my sewing cabinet and my fabric cupboard. Then there was some sewing - lady_darkstone
on her dress for the wedding, myself on the HG's tie. The tie is almost done, all I have left is handsewing, and will get accomplished during my lunch break. After the HG came home we switched to painting and preparing the wedding decoration, and it's getting *this* close to being done. Not as done as I wished for tonight, but very very close. And it should look awesome.
In the meantime we managed a final wedding dress try-on, and *phew*, no fitting issues, even with the Attack of Killer Boobs from Outer Space - also known as early pregnancy symptoms. I was a little worried about that, with all my bras not fitting anymore, but not only does it fit, it's *way* more comfortable than a modern bra. Yay !
I think I managed to give you a good sum up of the day, between all my babbling. I'm bidding you farewell for the night and will work towards getting some rest in my bed. *snores*
And again : THANK YOU HEILEEN !
