Count Down...

Hey Everyone,
My boys are getting closer to their big day and excitement is in the air!  My oldest son is tying the knot on 8.10.12.  Less than two months away...  My soon to be daughter had a Bridal Shower this past Saturday. Ohmygosh, it was SO much fun.  I'm not one for the games.  It seems that by the time you get to my age, you've been to so many showers that you've played all the games that there is to play.  Well, we played one that I never even heard of...
We split into teams of 4 or 5.  One of us was the "Bride" and the rest of the "team" were the dress designers.  Our "fabric" was toilet paper.  This was the funniest thing I've ever seen. Of course we were timed.  My team did not do well.  I think we were in last place.  Our dress was falling apart while the real Bride was "judging" and picking the winner.  I think our dress was more for the wedding night.. ha ha.  Some of the dresses were amazingly awesome.  I love the creativity, even with plain old T.P.

Here is a picture of the Bride to Be.  Aka, my soon to be Daughter!!
It was such a fun day and it's so exciting now that we are in the count down.. the last month & few weeks!
Until Next Time,

A Few Of My Favorite Places

Hey Everyone!
I thought I'd share a few of my favorite pages.  I have to stop by at least once per day.  The first one is a blog I recently discovered by clicking here and clicking there.  You know, one thing leads to another.... when you should be doing something else but you can't seem to step away from the laptop... haha..  what caught my eye was "Thirty Days Of Sundresses". I LOVE sundresses! Over at  MELLY SEWS, she features a sundress or two each day for young and adult.  It's so inspiring and looks SO easy!
My other favorite page is SEW CAN SHE.  Everyday is a feature project and tutorial by a talented sewist/crafter.  I just love it.  I signed up for her newsletter and each day I see something amazing! 
{ps I don't know the owners of the pages I mentioned or did they ask me to post about them. I'm simply sharing an awesome find!}
Here on the home front, Hubby was finally transferred out of the glass bubble/critical care unit and  on to the cardiac floor.  This is a good thing! The healing has been slow and go and pretty painful but it looks like the worst is behind him.
I hope where ever you are, you're enjoying wonderful weather like I am in sunny Southern Calif!

Until Next Time,

Trying To Balance

Hey Everyone!

Another gap in my blogging..  not that I haven't been thinking about it ! I never thought I'd be lost for words but it has actually happened. So much has been going on both personally and in the sewing room.  It would probably do me good if I did stop to write.  First I should say, my hubby is back in the hospital.  Not for orthopedic issues this time but vascular reasons.  He's had three surgeries in a row, two unplanned all starting this past Thursday. With all the hours I've spent sitting in Lobbies and ICU, you'd think I could write - but nope. My iphone has smoke coming out of it tho, with all the texting I've been doing!  I am thankful for the comfy bed in ICU. I get the best sleep there.  After the 2nd night at home and getting the 1:45am call that his vitals are out of whack & he's being rushed back into the O.R. for internal bleeding, it's rather unsettling.  Today is day five and vitals are finally stable but he is not a happy camper. With the foot long abdominal incision and having the breathing tube stuck down his throat three times, everything hurts. I hope my next post will be about improvement!
On a happy *Wedding* note ~ last weekend I went shopping with one of my future daughter-in-laws and we selected fabric for her veil and one other item that I will be making.  I'm SO excited about this!!!  And, even though they are not using a ring bearer, she still wanted a ring pillow so we also picked up some pretty fabric for that.  I was over the top full of energy and made the pillow the next day!! 
*Ring Bearer Pillow*
Don't you just love it?  I'll be posting more soon.  For now, off to the hospital.
Until next time,
