{#769} A Few Wedding Pics

Certainly not high-quality photos, but here are a few shots of the wedding.  The top one is the fathers of the couple coming up to pray for the bride and groom.  The bottom one is as our pastor announces the new man and wife.  I am exhausted and hurt all over. 

I have much, much more to show and tell about this most special day, but I don't even have the strength to put away our goods from the day.  Good night!

Less Than a Day Now

By this time tomorrow, my daughter will be a married woman.  Today was spent decorating, decorating, and decorating.  I spent hours ironing tablecloths.  We had a great time.  I made lunch for everyone that helped...simple crockpot stuff.

The church and reception hall look fantastic.  Rehearsal was short and sweet. 

I'll be sharing pictures soon.  Above is a pic of the ecstatic couple.  Happy just doesn't cut it!

I'm exhausted.  Wish me well!  No tears yet!

{#767} Playing With Log Cabin Blocks

Same blocks, different setting.  Which do you prefer?

{#766} Living Room Wall Quilt??

This is a small log cabin quilt center I started.  I kept making the little (3/4" finished) log blocks.  I want to make a new living room quilt for my house (imagine--making a quilt for myself!!).  This size is so nice for a wall hanging.  In the picture above, it is 25" wide and 30" long.  My goal size for the living room is about 40" square, so with a border or two, this could work.

Did I Miss Something??

(Pic from

Yesterday at church, people kept asking me one of the following questions...

~Are you nervous yet?

~Are you stressed-out yet?

~Are you worried yet?

~How ARE you?  (with a worried expression on their faces)

~Ready for this to be over?

I kept responding with a blank look as if I had no idea what they were referring to.  OF COURSE I know Emily is getting married this week.  The planning has gone so well.  Emily is very organized, and we have a fantastic woman from our church who is our volunteer coordinator.  So, for those of you who must know...

I am not nervous, stressed-out, or worried--YET.  If I do get to that state, you'll be the first to know!  I am the complete and unexplainable blend of ecstatic and sad.  My big goal is not to cry all all.  I'll let you know how that goes.


PS:  Have you noticed that I've been changing the color of my font to match the accompanying picture (s)??
