View Full Version : I'm Back!

Good Morning all. I've missed catching up with everyone and have missed sewing!! My one and only daughter was married last Saturday in a beautiful ceremony and we had such a great time at the reception. After a year of planning , everything came together and we loved every minute of it. Can't wait to see the photos! My friend who is a phenomenal seamstress transformed my wedding dress into my daughter's wedding dress. After only a few fittings, because my daughter lives in another state, her dress fit like a glove! I'm so amazed at how my friend can size gowns so perfectly! Jean the Sewing Machine, you probably can do this too! She also made vintage looking flowers with gold buttons for a sash and hair flower. The whole ensemble was perfect! I don't have a pic because I was too busy being the MOB, but I'll try to post one soon. Right now, DH and I are resting (how long does it take to get back to normal?) We're going to take a trip to the beach to wind down. Then I'm looking forward to making a cool mailbag purse and finishing my patriotic quilt. ( I know, should have been done by now, but had no time!)

Have a great day!

Gown remodel sounds beautiful and can't wait to see a photo. You and DH unwind and enjoy yourselves, you deserve it. May

Sounds lovely! I'm finding refitting things isn't that easy after working 2 months in a bridal salon! Glad to hear from you!

Can hardly wait for pics! (Maybe one of you and one of your daughter in the same dress - that is sooo cool!)

Congratulations on your daughter's marriage. When you have time we'd love to see some pics! Enjoy your relaxation with hubby! Sounds like you need it for sure. I know I would if I was in your boat or I guess it's in your shoes. hahaha!
