Rain Rain go away---Sarah's wedding is today!

It is early Saturday morning---the big day we have been waiting for and it is pouring down rain.

Sure hoping it comes to an end---my mind is trying to think abut plan B---moving the wedding inside and not wanting to do that---praying for some blue sky to appear.

It has been fun to have our family friends join us for the event---we are heading to the winery to decorate this morning.  I woke up at 3 AM and could not get back to sleep so I got up and ironed by daughter's petticoat and other attire that needed pressing---ironing is one of my least favorite things to do but it passed the time.  I am sitting in the hotel lobby, alone drinking my coffee and pondering the events of the day.  What to do?  I guess the best thing to do is to accept it as there is nothing I can do to change it.  Just enjoy the day and make the most of it!  Right?

Here is a picture of Doug and I trying out the photo booth AP on the computer when we were at home.

Pre Wedding Jitters

My youngest daughter's wedding is fast approaching---over a year of planning and now it is almost here.  The wedding will be June 28th at Grace Hill Winery in Whitewater Kansas.  It will be a fairly small (80 person) affair but we have put a lot of effort into the details and I am hoping for a wonderful day for Sarah and Philip.  Lots of vintage touches and I am excited to see how it all turns out.  I promise some pictures but hope to not bore you.

I will be bringing the rug that I hooked for them and bringing "mom"---I had a last minute push to get her done so she could come to the wedding---here is is---she has been a work in progress as I worked hard to bring my vision to life---the photo I worked from was when she was about 18 years old, just before she got married...unfortunately the marriage did not last but it lasted long enough to bring me into the picture, the youngest of four.  She died from Hodgkins when I was 9 at the young age of 38.

After the wedding I will be in teaching mode as prepare for my late summer and fall workshops.  Have a great summer!
