I have just finished the little flags to go in the desserts – I used lovely cotton tape and toothpicks.

There's only a week until my sister's wedding! I can't believe how quickly the time has gone. We are busy making bits and pieces for the big day, and slowly ticking things off our 'To do' list. I'm a little stressed, but mostly excited.

"it is as if I had a string somewhere under my left ribs, tightly and inextricably knotted to a similar string situated in the corresponding quarter of your little frame. And if that boisterous channel, and two hundred miles or so of land come broad between us, I am afraid that cord of communion will be snapped; and then I've a nervous notion I should take to bleeding inwardly."

Once upon a time there was a girl who had 7 invisible horses. People thought she was crazy and that she in fact had 7 imaginary horses, but this was not the case. When autumn came the girl spent a whole day washing all her clothes. She hung them on a string in her garden to let the gentle autumn sun dry them. Out of nowhere, a terrible storm came and its fiercefull winds grabbed a hold of all her clothes and all seven horses (authors note: since they are invisible they obviously didn't weigh much). The girl was devestated and spent all autumn looking for each horse spread around the country, wrapped in her clothes.

My sister is getting married in twenty something days! I'm excited and filled with anticipation. We are in a frenzy collecting glassware and making decorations.
Excitement hit a new high when we were lucky enough to see a test run of the lace (I designed) being made. It made it all so real.
I'm a little nervous about all the things we need to do, and the fact that it hasn't stopped raining for two weeks. Hopefully the sun will come out in time for the big day!
