I'm still standing!

I've not been posting as regular as I should, my apologies, but I've been a bit all over the shop. Firstly I've been dealing with a frozen shoulder, this time my left one- about 18 months ago it was my right one! It's painful and I've been x -rayed and I'm very grateful that there is nothing wrong with the bone, so I need to wait for my MRI scan next week to see if there is any other reason for it.
I've now had two cortizone shots and thankfully the second one has worked enough to allow me to drive properly and finally sleep well.
Also the wedding preparations have been piling up, but I've now got Heather's bridal bouquet done and she loves it...I can't show you it! I've done all the table arrangements, bride bouquets, belt trims, shoe bows and button holes for the blokes- phew! And made a batch of vegan cupcakes. Those on my face book will know these have passed the infamous Fern test, "they taste like real cakes." 
If you ever need to make vegan cakes try this excellent book, the processes might sound stange but they really work.

In between I'm pleased to have squeezed in a little bit of earring making, using scorchedearthonetsy and Grubbi details and some vintage patina brass and amazing copper buttons.

I'm just in the process of cutting out my wedding hat and prepping to make Fern's flower girl dress.
