I'm sorry if the wedding stuff is getting boring...

....but I don't have much else to blog about!
Last Saturday and Sunday was the open day and steaming at the Bratch Pumping Station where we are having the wedding reception.
Sunday was glorious. I can only hope we get sky this colour in 6 weeks time
The Bratch - Summer Open Day
There was a plethora of various steam driven vehicles and classic cars...

We made an afternoon of it and did a 7 mile circuit along the canal to get from our house

I think we need to wander up here on the wedding day to have some photos taken

You can sneak a look at the building through the trees.

On Monday there was time for crafting.
The bodice top of Carys' bridesmaid dress is done.
Bridesmaid's Dress Bodice
Half of the skirt is sewn too.... this weekend it is the turn of the netting. Eek.
Aeolian Wedding Shawl
This morning I got up early enough to take a picture of the progress on my Aeolian wedding shawl. 32 rows to go... I think I'm on track!
It is our 15 mile walk tomorrow and it looks like it is going to be the hottest day of the year so far. So much for me being convinced it was going to rain. Wish me luck!

Ooh the shawl is looking very pretty!
It took me a moment to work out what's going on with the bridesmaid's dress - that's a sash isn't it? They are not really going to have side panels and no back or front!?

I have been past that building so many times and thought it beautiful- you're so lucky to be getting such a great venue! Love the shawl progress, it's going to look amazing. x

There's a similarly eccentric pumping station near where I live in east London. I wish it was being put to such good use as this one.

Fabulous venue - suits you down to the ground.

The 'wedding stuff' certainly isn't boring at all! Love all the photos and good luck with the walk!

Can't wait to see your finished Aeolian!
