Last Thursday I thought I'd be posting updates throughout the day on my stitching. Except for getting a haircut and doing some packing I spent the entire day stitching felt flowers. I used no patterns except for a circle cookie cutter to cut out the felt. I stitched each flower differently, sewed floral wire behind the buttons, wrapped it in turquoise ribbon, sewed the ribbon closed and added a red button. Viola! A sweet bouquet.
Here is a picture my friend Catherine took of the bouquet:
And here I am holding the bouquet. This is right after Sam said "I do", hence the ridiculous smile on my face:
I could go pull the bouquet out and take more pictures, but I really just want to crawl in bed with a book. If everything goes as planned tomorrow (or maybe friday) there will be a bridal tips post, cupcake recipes, and honeymoon review (as in a review of restuarants, coffeeshops, and the hotel... not an - ahem - "honeymoon review").
