Things for the wedding and a gift from a friend

I made (with some help from my sister and cousin) 60 little boxes with candy inside to give to our guests at the wedding. I found a great tutorial for them from Paper Pleasing Ideas. My boxes are a little bit different and just 3cm x 4,5cm, so they are quite tiny. :)

I am knitting lilys with woolen yarn called Huopanen (100% felting wool). After I have all the flowers knitted I will toss them to washing machine to felt. I'm going to use them to make my bridal bouquet. Here is a pic of some of the flowers and stems before felting.

I got a wonderful gift from my blog friend Heidi. I helped her with starting a HAED chart and she wanted to give me a gift in return. Isn't she sweet! She has bees so she sent me two jars of honey, lovely stitched card to congratulate us for the wedding, little sheep and some flower shaped tea in a cutest little apple shaped jar. :) Thank you Heidi! We love your present!

Can't wait to see how your knitting came out of the washmachine. You sure did get a nice gift from Heidi, that is sweet of her!
