Here's a little project I just finished up and sent off to a friend. It was a very quick little thing, that turned into a load of fun. If you have lots of scraps, it's a great way to use some of them up. Another one of those something from nothings surprises. I do have to say though, while I was working on it, I was not impressed. It really needs to have all the stitching done before it's personality shows up. What a fun mindless thing it was to do. I need a project like this from time to time. Can you imagine it in Christmas colors with lots of golds/silvers, anything sparkly????? Bright batiks, etc. The sky is the limit with this little gem.
I didn't get much sewing done this weekend. Or any, I should say. I took the weekend to play outside my sewing room. It started with a quick trip to Glenwood Springs to the hot pools with a co-worker. Kelly and I had such a good time with our little girls get away. It was just a 1 day-er trip, but OH so much fun. Nothing better than soaking in those hot pools. She showed me a great little quilt shop up there. I bought a very interesting book on art quilting. I promise to "scare" all of you with some of my playing, real soon. :-) :-)
Then the event of the century was this weekend. A 2 day wedding. Ever hear of such a thing? It was truly spectacular. We took the camper and spent the weekend. This couple knows how to throw a party. They rented 7 big air castle things. One was a velcro wall, then there was a bungie cord thing, loads of slides and games. Go cart racing, movies, bonfires, and on and on and on. It was like being at the county fair, only 10 times better. We played all day Saturday, had a BBQ and pizza dinner, loads of birthday/anniversary cakes for all the Sept celebrations, a movie complete with popcorn, nachos and a candy table (4 to be exact) that had a better stock than any store I have ever seen. I don't think they missed any candy ever made. I was in heaven with my "Big Hunk" and Licorce whips!
The wedding was yesterday. It was a beautiful outdoors ceremony, followed by a sit down dinner for 400. You can't imagine just how beautiful the place was. Fish swimming in the cake table, beautiful lights in fall harvest colors. I didn't want to come home.
A special treat for us all was the personalized label, bottle of Almond Champagne. WOW!!!!!!!! It was the greatest thing I have ever had, and we all got a bottle to take home with us. It was soooooo good. The beautiful pot of mum's and pumpkin will be decorating my porch this fall and be a reminder of the very special weekend wedding. Thanks Jodie and Kelly, you two are the best!
