Despite the fact that I can't think of an appropriate title for this post, I am going to write anyway. I am still working on the 7 weird things about me for Dy. That will come later....this is just a quick bit to say hi to everyone who is still reading (thanks!) and to update you on a few of my projects.
I realized that I haven't even mentioned the yellow quilt is in the frame (it has been for a couple of weeks now!), and we are working on it whenever we have a spare moment. The girls even work on it during their lunch breaks and before and after work! Here is a picture from early in the quilting process. We were going to do stars around the border (since the other quilt has hearts), but when we saw these bows, the overwhelming consensus was to use them instead.
Now we are working on the last 6 blocks. Hopefully they go fast. I think they will, since it is mostly just straight line quilting. Soon this lovely quilt will be all finished! I will be so relieved when it is. As much as I have enjoyed doing these quilts, and as much as I felt I NEEDED to help with them, I also feel like we are going too slow, and that everyone is waiting for us to just get it done.....Then I feel like I haven't spent enough time on it because of all the other projects that need my attention right now. I really feel like I am being pulled in about 100 directions right now! I can't tell you how thankful I am for the help of all the girls in the shop....without them, I can guarantee that I would still be working on the border!
While the girls from the store are helping with the quilts, I am lucky enough to have a bunch of crafty pals who were kind enough to help me crank out some more roses for the centerpieces! Here is one that is finished...what do you think? My Craftster group got together on Sunday to help with wedding crafts! And with as much as I appreciate all the help they gave, I know that my brother and his fiance were even more appreciative of the help! I know I had a great time, and I hope everyone else enjoyed themselves, too. See how much we got done?
There is still a lot of work to do. But there was some major progress made this weekend (thanks everyone!) and I am feeling a LITTLE less stressed about getting it all done in time. June 16 is coming up really fast! Please keep your fingers crossed that I can pull it all off!
Again, because of the massive amount of work, and loads of projects I am trying to get finished, I don't know when I will be posting again. Thank you to everyone who is still checking in....after this marathon of wedding mayhem, I will be back to posting more regularly again.
