1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Wedding projects on: June 25, 2009 10:46:46 AM
These are two of the things I made for my partner's sister's wedding.

The ring pillow:

Their initials are K and E (obviously) and the spoon at the bottom is a Welsh Lovespoon (because they are welsh).  The colours were the same as the bridsmaids dresses/the best man's waistcoat.

and the garter:

This was made out of a strip of material (not 100% sure was it was!) with the elastic inside and then the flowers were sewn on.

Sorry for the crappy photos - photography is not my forte!

Heh I did try that and still couldn't get inspired by it....

Although I did just buy a knitting nancy today so I think ill try out the green stuf on that - maybe I can keep interested in it enough to make a rug or something.

Yep - I have this really nice Rowan Damask in a blue colour and I have not found anything to make with it yet.  I started a vest top which i had been eyeing up  and it looked rubbish, I started a scarf and it looked rubbish.  i'm think some lace or cable wrist/armwarmers but the wool is liek 50% linen so I dunno how well that would work or feel.

I also have a TONNE of this green cotton that I harvested from a jumper from the charity shop.  no matter what I try to knit with it it turns out awaful.  The only thing I have succesfully knit from it was...you may guess this already... wrist warmers!  Seriously how many pairs of wrist/armwarmer/gauntlets does a woman need!

Hey does anyone have a pattern (prefereably free!) or clipart of a girl in a bonnet.  Sort of Jane austen, Regency style and standing in profile.  I've searched and searched and am coming up blank....

I'm loving this - Mr Krabs is the greatest!

Laurrenn - I think there's something about the geekiness of crafting that goes with the geekiness of Spongebob.

Thank you very much for looking and saying nice things.  I haven't heard back from them yet (they live in another country and don't speak much english) but my dad assures me they willl love it. 

I liked making it if nothing else - blackwork is always so pretty and clean!

Oh and sorry for the delay in posting back. Wink

I had this pattern kicking around in my stash for years and I decided to finish it a couple of months ago.  That happened to coincide with a family member's Golden Wedding Anniversary so I thought it was quite fortuitous and framed it with (what I think is) a beautiful frame and sent it off.  I haven't heard anything from them yet so I'm hoping they like it hehehe.

I hope you guys like it too!

I posted a thread in the knitting forum about this but no-one seemed to be interested hehe.  Ah well!
