New In Shop *and* WeDdInG UpDaTe !!

Hey Everyone!
I hope you're all enjoying this great weather like we are in So Cal.  It's like a mild summer and  so comfortable!
I'm so excited about summer being just around the corner .... as well as The Weddings!! 
Last weekend, we headed out to "wine country" Temecula.  My youngest son and his fiance are exchanging their vows on a beautiful vineyard.  There was an open house and we got to check out possible vendors, taste wine and food and cake as well as lots of other goodies.  All the grape vines are perking up and look more alive, now that the dormant season is over.  Flowers are planted and lights strung up.  Well, instead of me trying to describe it, how about some photos?

The Lake lights up at night!
Of course my pictures don't do it justice.  This is such a beautiful setting for a wedding.
The vendors went through a lot to set up all around so that their products could be viewed by all the future Brides & Grooms.
Check out this cake! It's a dress & pair of shoes!
The Doves

How cool is this? Real roses in water with floating candle.
Some of the ideas were so creative!  There was a booth representing a lavender farm and the gal was making little sachets.  There was a mini donut table.  The smell and taste were out of this world.... so fresh and warm and soft and the icing was delicious... oh boy, I'd better be careful or I'll start drooling.
Then we stumbled upon the "transportation department".  Apparently, there are a variety of ways that the Bride can make her entrance.  It is a bit of a walk from the Bridal suites to the actual Isle that she'll be walking down.

Or, for the "princess Bride"  aka  MY 1st Choice {if anyone cares!!}
Horse and carriage. So beautiful !
The Bride hasn't decided yet on how she'll be presented.  She's not leaning towards the horse and carriage, I do know that.    I vote the Mom's and Grandma's should arrive in this sweet ride, don't you agree?

I had a couple days off this past week and was able to work on a few items for the shop.  I found this easy tutorial for an adorable patchwork pencil case ~ or any type of case for that matter.
Pink zippered case.
Zippered cases, for a couple friends..
Once the piecing is done and sewn together, it's a quick project.  Thanks to A Spoonful Of Sugar Designs for the awesome tutorial !!
Another quick project is a set of coasters.  I found the most adorable fabric from Robert Kaufman and I believe I purchased from FABRIC . COM.  I just love their website!  And always free shipping over $35.

Flamingo/Hawaiian Print set of six coasters.
I'm mostly making "quick" projects at the moment because time is so limited.  I have some great ideas for future but I will save that for a future post!
Until Next Time,
