I've been keeping a secret...

A rather big one actually!!! Simon and I are engaged!!
It's been a rather busy and an amazing time these last few weeks - and I think it's only going to get busier from now on. Whilst Simon and I had been talking about marriage for a while now, he got done on his knees and asked the all important question on the 3rd of February. Of course, he recieved a very enthusiastic yes!! We are both so excited about getting married and sharing in this wonderful journey called life together.
So, now the wedding plans start! We are planning a short engagement, and have set a date for in May. So - guess who is rather busy making invitations and shopping?! And I'm loving it all along the way of course! So, this sewing blog may turn a bit 'wedding-ish' for a few months! It's so exciting!
Our first Valentines Day together was spent having a picnic dinner in our favourite park, and talking about the future. Simon loved one of his gifts from me - a giant handmade chocolate heart freckle! The poor heart didn't last long though, and is now looking a bit 'half' hearted.
And I suppose I better show a scrap of fabric somewhere in here. This is another of my most recent loves - hessian. Love the texture and the feel. I think it may feature somewhat in the wedding. :)
