Hello, I am still recovering from an exhausting week and exciting weekend...and naturally due to the excitement I have forgotten all the images I wanted to share today from the wedding and the giveaway....apologies....I will post these tomorrow!

Today's inspiration comes from Xanthe Berkeley

More beautiful works on her Flickr page

This is how I WISH I could feel today....instead of the tired heap that I am!

PS I love Autumn the best!

Amazing photographs from painter and photographer Deborah Hamon. In this series of works she has painted the figures and put them into the natural environment. I love the effect it creates giving the images another worldly quality.

to Carly and Andrew on their wedding today!

Our little Amelie got to be a flowergirl and my husband was a bridesmaid!

I recently finished the flowergirls dress (as seen in sneaky peaks) and now I can share with you the full dress!

There are so many creative people involved in this wedding and all the dresses have been lovingly handmade as well as all decorations by the bride, groom, mother of the bride, bridesmaids and me!

I can't wait to share more amazing photos of their handmade wedding next week!

Pattern Notes: Oliver + S Bubble Dress

The above images show the dress in progress and Amelie having a dress rehearsal in the backyard....she's ready for action stations!

I really loved how the dress turned out and loved how neat the handstitching is...even on the inside (very rare for me!)

Very proud of this one and I can't wait to see if Willow likes it!
