Still no crafting...

Sorry. I am thinking about crafting, does that count?

I think I've lost a bit of confidence to be honest. I am sure it will come back especially when I show you all this...

I hear tell the Heather Ross range is interchangable and I can mix and match my mermaids with these too! I feel a quilt for me coming on. I just hope I have enough batting to put it all together in a lap quilt. Mmm maybe with flanelette on the back??
Also, I have to show you my gorgeous emerald dress that I found.
It's a 1940/50 dress that my sister got at a bargain price for me. I am in love!
I just need to have it altered a bit, it's a bit tight in the ribs and waist. Which is why I am not wearing it for these pics. Thankfully there is enough material in the thing, that it shouldn't be too hard.
Oh and I went opshopping/thrifting yesterday for the jars for the lolly buffet at the wedding and had massive success. Here is the haul!
All for under $20! So happy. Now what lollies will I fill it with? The colours of the wedding are vintage inspired. I'm thinking musk sticks, teeth, mentos... Mmmm.
I would really like to find a novelty martini glass, you know the big ones? Pray to the wedding gods for me will you?

The most beautiful ring

So here it is, the most perfect ring for me.

We went and chose it together... hey, we've been together for 5 years! He knows me but I couldn't face the idea of wearing something I wouldn't love to look at every day, FOREVER! (Plus he would have spent sooo much more. This way I could justify very expensive shoes as well ;) )

Sorry the picture is crap. It is so hard to take a picture of your own hand.
I haven't gotten my sewing machine out since the market failure :( so I have nothing crafty to show but I am working toward something.
The fabulous Jodie at Ric-Rac kindly sent me her gorgeous kinder boys pattern so I may have to have a go at them. They're so sweet!
I am also waiting on my engagement photo dress to be delivered this week so I will post pics of that, it's a green 50s style party dress.
Stay with me for more crafty goodness.... coming soon (I hope!)
