Oh dear oh dear

I have nothing to show this week. I'm not being modest and saying I've not had much time, I've only done a little bit. I've got nothing, I have not picked up any projects this week, not a stitch and not a hook. Nothing, nada!

I cannot remember the last time this happened! It's just been a busy week, I have no better excuse than that, but with nothing to show why am I posting I head you ask? Because I'm going with a different idea this week, I'm asking you to show me stuff instead.

Please post any of the following in the comments:
Pretty or cool ideas that you've seen from weddings
Cool wedding dresses
Paper flower tutorials, ideally like this one, but I'm interested in whatever people suggest

It was going so much better

 I'm mourning my baby blanket this morning, I have much more progress than I had to show the last time I posted, but I had even more progress when I initially lay it out to take a picture of it, but then I noticed that it was starting to taper on the right hand side, so I've just ripped out 8 rows out back to where it was starting to taper. I'm having that problem with this blankets, and I don't know why. This is the second time that I've ripped some out since I've started it. Has anyone else done this, is Cosy by Attic 24, and had the same problem. When I redo it the problem seems to go away the second time, and I'm not aware that I'm doing anything different, so it's all a bit puzzling, and means that this blanket is taking me a lot longer than it should be. Very strange.!
Secondly, I only again have progress to show on the sheep. I've only actually got six colours plus back stitch left, but three of those colours take up a lot of space. But at the moment I'm just happy that my sheep are actually starting to look like sheep, and I might actually get this finished in time to get it framed as well. My own work is by the wayside at the moment, but I'm hoping that a couple more weeks of working on these might be able to bring my own work back into time again.

Stuff's happening (slowly)

I've managed a  little time on Cara Mia, Mon Cher this week, but I suspect that that won't happen again any time soon, as I've suddenly realised how many things I have to finish by the end of the month (I'm doomed!).
I have also (sadly) discovered that Ben doesn't really like this one, I showed him the finished pic and his only reaction was 'what are you going to do with that?' I don't pick pieces based on his taste, but I'd rather that he liked them, as they're basically going to be in my life for quite a long time, no matter what I decide to do them. So, I'm not quite sure what's going to happen to it, but I am still enjoying working on it I think. 

Second up, the sheep continue, and for the first time ever I actually have a little bit of progress to see. I may not be a big fan of football, but I do get a lot of stitching done when it's on. Especially when Ben has a friend room and I go and hide in a different room, I got half of the progress I have to show done last night because of that.

And in other news I've seen so many wedding venues that my head is spinning!

Oh, and I think I've solved my problem with commenting on other peoples blogs, hopefully!

Little Sheep

The sheep continue to grow, my photography is terrible... I suddenly realised that the light was going and I hadn't posted yet, rubbish!
