I'm so excited!!!

I received a quote for our wedding flowers today. I cannot wait for this wedding! It's going to be so much fun!!! This is a photo of a hocus pocus rose, which I'm having in my bouquet.

But they're going to be gorgeous! I really love the lady that's putting them all together! She has tastes that mirror my own, so if there's something that needs to be filled in, I completely trust her judgement! If you don't believe me, check out her website! It's fantastic!!! I love her work!

I can't wait for our wedding!!!

If you have ever been married, what was your favorite part? What do you remember the most? And in the long run, does it really matter how much you spend on flowers, cake, or decorations?

A cold spring.

Here in Southern Wisconsin it's been a coll spring. We had one day where it was 85 degrees, and I was in Washington D.C. then, and the rest of the days here it's barely been in the upper 40's! Needless to say I'm itching for tennis weather.

A week ago was my Grandma's 80th surprise birthday party. And boy was she surprised!!! Here's a couple of photos of the table runner I whipped up for her.

I didn't use a pattern, I just drew up what I wanted on graph paper. Never underestimate the power of graph paper and a pen!

Now on to a bigger project that I've been commissioned for! :) I won't be posting those photos out of fairness for the person I'm making it for. Once they receive the finished product, I'll be sure and put them up!

Thanks for taking time out of your day to read my blog, I know I've been slacking lately, and now that summer's hopefully around the corner, there's no promises that I'll be posting more often.

If it's beautiful where you are go out in your garden, take a walk, play some tennis, or just sit out on your favorite park bench. Until next time, happy quilting!
