we have had a nice week around here with a mix of sun rain and the usual business. the wedding planning is winding down with some parts and up with others. 95% of the invitations have gone out and are trickling in with responses. the next steps will be such details as planning the ceremony and the decorations. we found a ton of small glass flower holders at good will this weekend to dress up the tables a bit. the flowers are going to be a low key combo of wild flowers, from my mothers garden and a split bouquet or two.
dress making is nearing completion! and i have taken precious little pictures im afraid. the hour here and there i get i spend madly sewing and forgetting about documentation. i did find a zipper today for the bodice back to finish that up and the skirt part is done, at least pre-details if i add any at all.
eliot has decided on his future profession already. this has been his favorite toy. good thing it hasnt seen any real use. unfortunately he hasnt show any interest in actually using the potty, only the flushing part.
we visited the clam festival last week. the yearly treck to get fried dough was a yummy success. i was too busy with sugary hands and dodging carnies to take a really good pictures. eliot was a little overwhelmed and a tad frightened of the whole operation. i think next year he will be a little more interested and less likely to stay in the stroller. maybe i can get him to sing under the big karaoke tent.
i have also started another craft project to keep my mind at ease while we wedding plan. a friend of mine is having a baby in a few months so i thought i would start a quilt. if my track record holds true she should have it in the neighborhood of august of 09. i decided on an alphabet theme from this inspiration. this woman just has a way with fabric that i really love.
