Happy Anniversary to us!






My dear husband, Donald and I will celebrate our fifth wedding anniversary tomorrow, 8/8/09. I've posted some photos from that wonderfully perfect day! Wow, how time flies. Yes, I made my gown and the entire bridal party, plus the mother, aunt and MIL suits, and 3 hostess dresses. I get dizzy just thinking about it. LOL
Anyway I won't be doing any sewing tomorrow. I worked on some embroidery today. I have a client who wants a wedding dance apron. First request for one of these. I'll be using a casa satin from Joanns. I will draft a simple pattern for the apron and add a ruffle around the entire apron and add two pockets for her cash. I'm also embroidering the bride and groom's names and wedding date in the center of the apron. I'll post pics!

Happy Anniversary! Girl, you did some sewing for your wedding! I couldn't imagine doing all of that being the bride! But you did a fabulous job!

You look really pretty! Looks like you had a really nice wedding! A beautiful gown, too. You've been doing alot of celebrating, lately. My Dad's birthday was near yours: 8/1, Mom's is 8/17 and their annivesary is 8/23. Thx for the comments. I figured Helen would send the link to the ASG, but those that are on my Facebook got the link :-) Enjoy your weekend and congratulations again.

PS: I didn't make today's lounge, but I heard they had 30 registered. They had to put a cap on this month's--so many people!

Thanks so much everyone! We had a wonderful anniversary. I got so much pleasure out of making those garments. I would've been a terrible worry wart of a client if I had hired someone else to do it. LOL
