Here Comes the Bride


 My daughter, Jessica, got married on September 22 this year.  This bridal gown was my mother's, mine and now hers.   As you can see there are lots of buttons going down the back and it took me and two bridesmaids, taking turns. to get them all buttoned.  The flower girl counted them as 46 in all.


 Jess and Bill got married outdoors at my brother-in-law's farm in the country.  Luckily the weather was about 60 degrees and sunny.  The arbor has grapevines from the farm property.


 They met on Match.com almost two years ago.  The rest, as they say, is history.  I feel so very lucky to have this great guy as my son-in-law.


This is my latest work in progress.  I'm finally settling back into my daily routine in my tiny sunroom studio.  I hope to catch up with everyone's blogs now that things have winded down somewhat.   It's been a very blessed year.
