So I'll start with the wedding. It was a very loooooooooong trip (1800+ miles roundtrip, in 5 days), and while the wedding was lovely, it felt a bit....disorganized? I dunno. Maybe it is because at my wedding, I was constantly worried about making my guests happy. This wedding - not so much. There were no programs, and people just kind of milled around and waited to be told what to do/where to go/etc. Even the wedding party was a bit clueless - DH was a groomsman, and they had no rehearsal! Anyway. May the bride and groom enjoy a lifetime of wedding bliss and all that....here's the pictures!
DH and I outside the reception hall. (My dress is my green plaid Irish dress....it went over INCREDIBLY well, and I think I look fah-bu-lous in it!)
The ceremony was SUPPOSED to take place on the stage you see here, but it was pouring at the time....so the ceremony was held in the reception hall. It was rather dark in there, and I couldn't really get any decent pictures.
Although I didn't do anything with it, I DID finish the Vermillion freebie that I'd planned to make into a bag. It is quite lovely, and I do have the remnants from the Dress That Wasn't that coordinate with it very nicely. Maybe later this year, when I'm not feeling quite such a time crunch, I'll get motivated to make something with it!
And finally (and completely UNstitchy or wedding-y), my present to myself. You see, 6 years ago I got my first tattoo - a Celtic knot design. For the past 5 years, I've wanted to add a dragon to it in some form, either around the knot, or make the knot part of the dragon, or something like that. And yesterday.....I did it. Wooo-hooo, I'm an ink junkie!! (He is on my upper left thigh, high enough to be hidden most of the time - unless I'm wearing a bathing suit, of course, or possibly an obscenely short skirt. hehehe From the top of his wings to the longest part of his tail, he's maybe 5 or 6 inches.)
