NaNoWriMo and Wedding Anniversary

If you have stopped by my blog over the last two weeks and heard the crickets chirping, that is because I have been pretty busy typing away this month for NaNoWriMo – National Novel Writing Month, where the goal is to write a 50,000 word first draft for a novel in 30 days. I am running behind on my word count at the moment, but I have been making up some ground over the last few days and am so far very happy with how my story is progressing.

I haven’t had much time to work on my Parabola Afghan, but I have nearly finished the Black Sea Shawl with only one last row to complete.

It was out seven-year wedding anniversary last Sunday, so I thought I would share a photo of the crochet cake toppers I made for us, made using pattern templates from Creepy Cute Crochet.

My husband and I got married on the 11/11/11 @11:11 at the Alexandra Battery, Sandy Bay. As our wedding wasn’t the most “traditional” of kinds, we did most of our shopping for it online, then took care of the rest ourselves – I even made my own wedding skirt. I purchased the ring box in the photo above from Etsy and the fabric flower is one that I made for the bouquet.

I am hoping to be able to get a few more blog posts up before the end of the month (I still have a backlog of happy mails that I want to share), but if I don’t, at least you know where I am – lost within my own fictional world as I try desperately to bring it to life.
