It was probably merciful that I was busy with bunting, because we’ve had more internet problems. Unfortunately, we’re still having them so my ability to share photos of the bunting is limited but I hope the above gives you a fair idea of what it looked like.

I said that finding an adequate space for cutting was my biggest challenge and in purely practical terms that’s probably true. My truly biggest challenge, however, was being a full-time worker with a lengthy, twice-daily commute. It was, simply, difficult to fit a lot of sewing into my available spare time because there wasn’t much of it.

All the same, I was very pleased with the finished product (actually, extremely chuffed; and even YoungB commented how nice it looked). There were several comments from other guests about how good it looked, which was also very nice. But, most important of all, the bride and groom loved it. You couldn’t put a price on that 🙂

    Excellent job! It is very pretty and certainly adds festivity to any location. When did bunting become a thing? What happens to it after the party?

    Thank you. I kept looking at it and thinking how nice it was 🙂 (Vanity.) I don’t know that bunting has ever truly gone out of fashion, but in this case it’s going to be lent to another couple for their wedding. I suggested it could be hired out for festive occasions of various sorts, not only weddings (someone else locally does that with 350 metres of lovely, lace bunting).
