I ♥ weddings


I'd almost forgotten about this huge pile I made a couple of weeks ago.  It was all part of a little favour I was asked to do and as it was for a favourite Sister in Law and because it was a pleasant, crafty little task, I was happy to oblige.

She's getting married next year and she wants a low-key, homemade, sort of country fete meets tea-party type of affair.  It sounds like it's going to be wonderful, so I'm very excited about it too.  She wants lots of knitted, crocheted and sewn goodies about the place and luckily, she has an army of willing helpers ready to lend a hand.

My job, as you might have realised, was to make some hearts to hang up and around the wedding venue.  She's been collecting a lot of material off-cuts and picked up some end of line bargins at her local fabric shop, so I had a whole stack of pretty piles to choose from.  I couldn't resist adding a couple of my own too, in soft dusky rose and greens, the colours of the big day.

She trusted me with a free rein and kindly told me 'whatever you do, I know I'll like'.  Which was very sweet of her of course, but made me worry slightly, in case I went horribly wrong.  Fortunately, I was also reasonably sure I knew what sort of look she is trying to go for, so it didn't take me too long to get a plan and get started.

I made some hearts to dangle down...

Some hearts to hang in a row...


Some with pretty beads...



And a whole load of hearts in all different shapes and sizes to hang around anywhere and everywhere.


I hope that'll do the trick!

  5. My eldest daughter was married a few weeks ago and Kate wanted her wedding to be very informal with a country feel. Kate decided to use jam jars and glass bottles for her flowers. I had a busy few months collecting jam jars and knitting and crocheting covers for them, It worked perfectly and the simple arrangements were wonderful as I am sure your lovely hearts will be - they are beautiful.
