Ready to return to quilting


I've been missing for months from blogland and miss seeing what others are making and collecting along with doing my own quilting.  I was busy helping to prepare for one of my biggest days as a mother - the wedding of my oldest son.  The big day went off splendidly last Saturday so indulge me as I show him off just a tiny bit.  Here he is with his beautiful bride!


This one is a little dark (cell phone).  My younger son is in the best man position and he said that this was the moment it "got real" for his brother.  I have to say, the best man killed it with his speech.  Brought many of us to tears which is my measure of a good wedding toast.


Just had to share this picture of the delicious crabs we had at the rehearsal dinner.  What a fun time to share with our families before the big day.  Plus, no Maryland Eastern Shore event is complete without the tasty crustaceans.

Tonight I cut more pieces for my stars and get back to hand stitching tomorrow.  The weather has turned cooler and I look forward to cleaning up my sewing space and spending Sundays watching football and stitching.
