WOW: What A Week!

WOW = WIPs On Wednesdays
Well, September was quite the whirlwind! As well as the wedding and passing away of the newlywed's beloved dog, my other DD had her birthday on Sunday and I managed to strain a muscle in my back - so with all my good plans and intentions, I've been in bed, taking Voltaren and resting up instead. Hopefully the rest of the year will carry on with a much calmer note for me - I have plans and would like to make a start on them as soon as possible. Hopefully I won't be straining anything else and can get back to 'work'. I feel all out of sorts having been away from my fabric! It's been quite the week and I'm looking forward to getting back to my old self.

We're still waiting on the professional photos from the wedding, but here is a sneaky peak to prove that the dress in question really did make it to the mountain top :) I can't wait to share more with you..

What's Your WOW?

  1. Heavenly! Truly beautiful! Is she really standing there? Looks scary to me! You did a fantastic job on the dress and I do hope you will feel better and get back to normal soon. I know it must have been a tremendous blow to lose her beloved friend. I hope her heart heals quickly.
