The fiancee and I are absolutely blown away by the number of friends and family who are willing to travel such a distance to spend the big day with us. And we can't wait to celebrate with every single one of them.
I head out of town tomorrow morning, with a car packed full of wedding goodies - including my dress - to make the trip up to Williamsburg. The fiancee will join me later, as he doesn't have the luxury of lots of vacation days like I do.
And so, as you might imagine, as I will be busy with other things in my life other than sewing and crafting, this blog will remain quiet for a bit. Promise to be back soon with some photos and to share all the fun projects we did for the wedding!

I'll get to the part everyone is curious about - the winner. I had the random number generator (the fiancee) choose a number between 1 and 362 and he chose 252 - so...congratulations to Sy! (I sent you an e-mail so be sure to get back to me with your address to send the fat quarters.)
I really enjoyed all of the advice everyone shared and appreciate all the lessons you were willing to offer me about married life. We definitely have a lot of great ideas to sift through and incorporate into our new life together (which will start in 16 days!) We also had some good laughs!
Once again, thanks for stopping by.

It's giveaway time - as part of Sew Mama Sew! Giveaway Day! Up for grabs is a set of three fat quarters - all very bright and cherry and just in time for upcoming summer!
There's a yellow stripe, a red/green/yellow plaid and a bright and a cheery floral!
What do you need to do to win this? Well, as I'm getting married in twenty days - leave me a comment with a piece of advice about how to have a great marriage. I look forward to reading your advice. I'll have the random number generator (better known as the fiancee - who will be told "pick a number between 1 and ###) pick a winner. And this will stay open through 10 pm on Thursday, May 20th. I'm more than happy to ship internationally, too.
Thanks for stopping by!

Here are the casualties of one such wedding craft project. It kinda looks like a ribbon factory exploded on our carpet. Needless to say, after many hours with a scissors, I then became accquainted with our dustpan and brush and vacuum.

Isn't it beautiful? It arrrived in the mail not too long ago. Now, I just need to find a layer cake that I love to make it from. (Hint, hint husband-to-be...birthday is not that far away, and yes, I know I should be focusing on wedding and not sewing - but like that's going to happen!)
Anyways, I'm so excited to try out this new pattern, but that's going to have to wait until after June 5th! Only 34 days remain to the big day!!! Which really means I should stop posting and get back to all the wedding projects in front of me.
