Wowee, yesterday was a B-U-S-Y one!! I got up, weighed in (lost 1.6 pounds), went to Zumba. I love me some Zumba! Came home showered and had lunch. Went shopping. First to Khols for a new pair of jeans, size 12!! I can't even remember the last time I could fit into a 12. Then I met up with PTM at JAF to try to use our 50% off coupons. Bought some Kona cottons, coal, purple, lime green and a royal blue. Then I came home to watch my Spartans whomp number 11 Wisconsin!! Good job Spartans!! Also when I got home I had this waiting for me.
This is on page 22 of the latest McCall's magazine!! My first time in a magazine, even though it is basically just an ad. It's still kind of exciting!
Next up was getting ready for the engagement party. I decided to write on the back of the quilt and make it personal too. I put a Gaelic blessing on it as well. Hey, go big or go home right? But let me back up. I don't know how many of you know that PTM does all my bindings for me. I have trouble with my hands when I do too much hand work and the hand sewing of the bindings just about cripples me, so being the BFF that she is she does them for me. I have to show you how amazing they really are too just look at this,
Can you see those teenie tiny stitches? And her mitered corners are always perfect!! I am working on getting her to do a tutorial, she really is Pauline the Magnificent!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart, PTM!
I know you are all dying to see the label right? OK here it is.
Really LONG but I totally LOVE how it came out. You can really see the beautiful quilting LTW did on it in that last picture too.
"But how did they like it?" I hear you all saying, right? They loved it.
She is just adorable. What a nice girl and what a great couple they make. You should have seen her diamond, OMG knock your sox off. It was probably a carat of canary (light yellow) surrounded by white diamonds. BEAUTIFUL! And Matt? His arm is healing and he can see again. They did a cornea transplant and cleared out his eye and gave him a lens implant. He said his vision is not perfect but he can at least see out of the eye now. It was such a fun night. Matt has seen his share of rough times in his short life and he so deserves to be happy! Oh and here is a pic of me and Matt's mom, Terry.
We have been friends for a LONG time and she is so happy to have Kahli in the family.
Congratulations Matt and Kahli!
