Congratulations Cousin III & IV...finally!

To all of my faithful readers out there.... I apologize for the delay in my new posting.....But, my wonderful hubbs and I have been very busy lately....we were making a baby (as a surprise to us)....Our first baby in fact... So, more mommy stuff later, but for now....on with the crafts! We have so much to show you that we've been working on!

This is my cousin, Katie. She got to wear this beautiful dress in her sister's wedding. I was so honored to get to do the alterations to make her dress fit. (You know the bridal stores always order them in too large)..... Katie is very thin, so I took in the sides of the dress along the bodice, moved the halter straps 2" in on each side, and hemmed the gown about 1 1/2". It came out great and she looked beautiful in it!
Closer look. Very pretty design by Alfred Angelo, in eggplant:

This is what Lisa's ring-bearer pillow looked like origionally:

This is what the pillow looked like after adding a simple splash of Lisa's eggplant wedding accent color: I had such a great time doing all of these alterations, crafts, and sewing projects for the wedding! How fantastic! I am so happy for you Lisa, and I hope you and Aaron have a great life together! Look forward to seeing you at the next family gathering!
