Letting you know I'm ok

The flu has gone! :) I have been busy but all the things I've done are for the wedding and I don't want to show them here just yet. I have also been pampering myself. I had a facial on Saturday and had my nails done yesterday. I now have strong nails for the first time in my life! I haven't tried stitching or knitting yet, I hope I can still do those with these new claws! :D Well the nails are not very long (I just can't function at all with really long nails) so I think they're ok with stitching and knitting... and buttoning up my pants! :D

People have been saying they want to see wedding pictures and I promise I'll post some after the wedding and after we get the photos from our photographer.

I have the horrible sdiffles! Sdiff! I just keep sdeezing all the time! I was ok on Sunday but on Monday morning I woke up just before the alarm went of because my nose had desided to turn into a fountain and the flu hit me right in the face! I got to work yesterday and also this morning but now I start feeling a little feverish and achy. I don't have time to be ill but I guess there is nothing I can do now but to give in. I'll go and see the doctor and after that bury myself under the covers. Taking some thin felt, wool yarn and my laptop (when I finally have some time to read all the blogs I've been missing) there with me. And also some hot drinks and flu medicine. Too bad the serger doesn't fit under the blanket so I won't be able to do any sewing. :)

Invitations sent

We made all the invitations for our wedding party and it was a big job! On Monday we finally got them ready and I sent them on Tuesday. Now we just wait who will come. :) I will take a picture of the invite next week to show it here.

I had to frog the cap I am knitting for my husband. It was too big. I was almost half way up and didn't really feel up to starting it again. I'll try again later.

Today I'll go and buy some fabric for the banners that we are going to hang at the hall where we have the party. Tomorrow I will paint some figures on them with a couple of my friends. Maybe we'll have a glass of wine too. ;) Those I'll show you after the wedding party, I mean the banners, not the wine ;). The cloak is almost ready. I was so busy with the invites that I didn't have time to sew it. Maybe I will finish it today and finally post some picture here! :D

There are so many things I have to do before the party, I hope I have enough time...
