Jacy, what a beautiful and happy couple. Boy are you going to be busy!
Jacy: My oldest DD is engaged, planning a wedding for next June.
They look so much in love. Congratulations to all. From now to June will seem like a blur. When my DD got married everyday was a new adventure. But take the time to enjoy the chaos because it will soon be gone. Our little ones grow too fast, don't they?
Thank you all! Yes I will be busy, especially since next june I also have a DD graduating from high school, as well as a DS returning from 2 years in Mexico. Luckily her fiance comes from a family with more kids than ours (not very often we meet someone with more than us!) so they are both pretty frugal, so hopefully they won't break the bank. His mother has done 2 weddings already and has a wedding notebook, that will be most helpful.
As far as a quilt, I have a batik DWR all cut out, and a sylvia's bridal sampler in progress. However she has a tendency to always want something different than something I've already started. I'll have to leave them out and if she comments on them, then I'll know if she likes them. He's in the navy so I might see if I can come up with an idea that incorporates that.
Congratulation,s, Jacy ! What a beautiful couple! Enjoy every moment as it will be over before a blink of an eye. Thanks for sharing! Susan
Woo-hoo! I'm back, and just in time to read your terrific news Jacy! Congrats to the happy couple. They sure won't have trouble filling the wedding party, that's fer sure!
I've been gone for more then a month since I said I was back...It's gonna take me another month to catch up on everything I missed! the entire summer flew by without you all. Now I think my computer woes really are under control this time ( ihope so anyway). My boss got tired of not being able to share important info with me through e-mail and gave me his old laptop (truth is I think he really just used me as an excuse to buy himself a new toy...). It's old and well used, but it connects to the internet!! DH laughs because the very first thing I did when I logged on was come here. I just told him to watch the kids. I'm gonna be busy for a while... LOL
School started for my kiddos this week -the boys on Tues, and DD yesterday. She's already had her first rotten day dealing with cliques and bullies. (Don'tcha miss high school? )
DS1 designed a rucksack for himself and we spent 2 weeks making it. It took forever because he had to design a dragon to paint on it, and then do the painting... Marge(Dimples) sent the terrific flame print that we used to line it. It's one seriously cool school bag, I tell ya! DD liked it so much that she copied his idea and made herself one, altho it's not painted. She chose a great batik for it and trimmed hers with ric-rac.
Now that school is going again, Sprout and I are having to adjust to a new routine. He's doing better then I, truth be told... Altho todya he did have a late afternoon melt-down. He started a fit when I told him 'no' and just couldn't stop. I'm pretty sure that by the time he wore down, he'd forgotten what he started fussing for in the first place. Now he's had a nap and food and he's back to his happy grinny self. :)
So, now I've greeted you all, I guess I had better start reading those old posts. i sure have missed you!!
Quilters are people who strip so they won't go topless.
