WOYWW 211 - last call for Roberts!

Late posting today.
And I don't really have a desk for WOYWW, that wonderful creation of the fabulous Miss Dunnit.
I'm still a little bit busy, as The Big Day is this Friday and I get to take a new married surname instead of using my old married one.  I could have gone back to my maiden name but I'm a cheapskate.  There, I said it.
Anyway, I don't really have a desk so I've posted up a picture of what I HAVE been working on lately - two nights this week, I turned a  marzipaned fruitcake into this.  I don't have to worry if it will eat alright - my Mum (bless her) made it, and having had about 70 years practice at this kind of thing will no doubt have turned out another awesome work of edible art.  She makes the best fruit cakes I know of.  Apologies to those who have already seen this cake on Facebook yesterday.
The second picture is something else I'm now working on for the wedding - hair slides for myself and  Lil Miss B... I'd be lying if I said the bouquets were finished but they're 99% done, just requiring a needle and thread on both, and a few more buttons/beads on one.

So - enjoy your hopping, my apologies that I don't reciprocate with any visits and comments,  but I really think I'm going to be otherwise engaged married this week!

I think you can be excused visiting us this week, Morti! the cake looks fabulous (I don't mind seeing it again at all) and so do the hairslides.
I would like to wish you and your intended the very best of luck in a long and happy marriage, starting Friday - woop woop!! (I didn't go back to my maiden name either, for largely the same reason!)

Have a great time on Friday, and share some photos whenever you can.

much love
Helen (31) xxxxx
