I made it!

We made it through the day! Holly is now married and starting her new life. Jenna gave the bridesmaid speech and started to cry - that made all of us cry! But it was a lovely day and things went well. Just a few pics - I haven't hadtime to go through them all.

But meanwhile my friend Jody (from Australia) and I (along with her family) have been having a blast! I still have so much to share about the last 2 weeks there too!

Where to start!

I don't even know where to start! My friend Jody and her family and my family are having SO MUCH fun! There is no way I could ever share everything! Above is the most adorable chook pincushion you could ever want - NO ONE is taking this from me!

Went to a brewery in Milwaukee that also makes pop, that was a blast! Their root beer is so good - but the boys didn't like it! They think it tastes like thier medicine in AU!

It has been cold and rainy all week, but we final braved the elements and went to Chicago yesterday to the museum of science and industry. Had a great day just hanging out there. We saw the German U-505 submarine and went into the coal mine! And look at these awesome chicago buildings made out of lego's!

Of course also have shared lots of meals and friendship. I don't want this week to end. Well ok, next week because they are coming to Oklahoma with me for the wedding! Oh and I made these note pad covers for Holly and the bridesmaids. Emily has already informed me she won't touch hers!

The Wedding quilt is DONE!

Just put the finishing stitch in the binding on the wedding quilt! I"m so happy! I"ll get a picture of it Wednesday since I go to guild and have lots of hands to help hold it up (especially tall people since it is so big!) Meanwhile I got a few more confetti blocks done. I also have been working on some thread organizers for our guild's boutique at our show in November, but no pics right now.
