The wedding is almost upon us. Debra and her old roommate practiced putting her hair up last night – haven’t gotten the report on that yet but whatever they do it will be beautiful.
My dress is ready, with matching reticule. I found the metal clasp frame at the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival on Thursday, and used a button from my stash as accent. The fabric matches the sleeveless top I made, which you can’t see in the pix. I’d bought a chain strap, but I was afraid it would pull the delicate fabric of the jacket, so I robbed the clasps and made a fabric strap. I really like the dress, and found shoes that are a perfect color match.
I wanted a wedding themed wall hanging for our front door, so made this one last weekend from images from the web. I’m very pleased with the way it came out. Doves and rosebuds are fused, then stitched over with decorative threads.
