A couple of Wedding Photos and A Solo September Update

Tuesday September 6 

So the wedding is over.  I am so very happy, It was a beautiful day, My daughter is crazy happy. The last few months have been packed full of DRAMA.  But all is good.  I have added only a few of the many pictures taken

Three Generations, Me, my daughter and my grand baby.  She is very happy her mommy and daddy are getting married.
And the dress is on.  The petticoat is misbehaving, so my daughter and me are making some last minute adjustments.

Most of the brides maids - once is missing - last minute shoe purchase, Left to Right Maid of Honor (daughter), Daughter #4, followed by daughter #1 and my niece.  Of course my granddaughter steals the show.

Bride and Groom - the reception is about over when this picture was taken.  It was a wonderful evening.

Silent Cardinals - Solo September - 1st update.
 Monday was a holiday - I took the opportunity to relax and Stitch - so I did get quite a bit done on Cardinal #1.  I hope I can continue at this rate and get this project finished before the end of September.

My dress was on sale - it was a great bargain, I will be able to wear it again and again and it was very comfortable.

The wedding was a crazy party.  My son in law is from Jamaica and his family is so much fun.  Looking forward to many more family events.

Theresa loved her little picture holder for her bouquet I have to get a better picture of my little pouch to post.  It was a success.

  13. Thanks for sharing the photos. I looked at the first one and thought "it was a very casual wedding"! Then realised it was a before dressing photo LOL.
    Your granddaughter is adorable and I think it's a great idea to wait until they are old enough to join in and appreciate the day. My son refers to the day "we" got married - ie me, hubby and him!
