For those of you who are even the slightest bit interested, here is my list of accomplishments regarding the wedding thus far:
Location, Date, & Time - Set
Attendants - check
Minister - check
Photographer - check
Jewelery - in the process of being made
Invitations - ordered FINALLY!!!
Sound system for music & ceremony - check
Music - being collected and organized
Bridesmaid dress - check
The suits for the guys- check
These are the items still lacking but which need to be decided on very soon:
Tables, Chairs, Dinnerware
Hair & Accessories including the veil
I have a dress but I'm unsure if I'll be wearing that one the day of. It's a nice dress but I'm on the fence still as to whether I LOVE it. A quick look at other options won't kill me but might break the budget...more on this later.
I need to make some mock up decorations so I can convince my mother that I can save money and keep it tasteful. Now the problem is where I'll find the time to do this? Brad and I are hoping to get some food tasting in this weekend so perhaps we can settle on a caterer soon.
That's the skinny...and pretty much my life at the moment. SO, thank you for reading and please forgive my absence if I don't post for awhile. I hope you can understand that my priorities have shifted slightly until after June 7th!

Things I'm working on now include a wallet for a co-worker, a new bed order for Sandy & Buster, an Easter dress for myself, and a baby quilt for my cousin's shower in a couple of weeks. Yikes! Where does the time go? Sometimes I think I just keep making up things to do so I don't have to fear running out of items. Plus, it gives me things to blog about in the meantime.
Stay tuned to hear more about this baby quilt. I'm copying another woman's technique and I'm hoping mine turns out as amazing as hers! I'm fearful that it'll be 'interesting'. Oh, and if I can manage, I'll be back to reveal my new Easter dress!

Now, I've got some photos for you of the bag I made my sister for her trip to Brazil! She's finally back so now she's promised me pictures so I can show everyone how cute it turned out! Here are a couple pictures for you to feast your eyes upon! She said everyone was so jealous of it and wanted to know where she's gotten it. Tell everyone you know, Jen!!!

And the rear...you can see what I'm talking about here. Unfortunately, they were too short for him but they seemed to fit everywhere else. So, I'm taking more guy appropriate fabric and making more for him. I'm really proud of these! But, the next ones have to have the fly open to the correct side as I managed to goof that up too! I also promised to try to hem his pants for him. I'll let you know how it goes.
I managed to squeeze in a bag for my sister for her trip to Brazil. I don't have pictures of it yet as it was a mad dash to get it to her before she boarded the plane, but there will be plenty to come when she returns if the bag is still in one piece by then. I'm sure it will hold, but the swiftness in which I sewed it makes me nervous that I didn't spend the extra time making sure everything would sustain a trip abroad. It is mad cute, however! This also is quite a source of pride. It was constructed from a pair of my grandmother's shorts and a t-shirt I found at the thrift store. It's too cute for words so I'll just leave it at that until I can get some pictures to say it all!
