2008 is going to be my year! Hope everyone had a Happy New Years day. I was up at the butt crack of dawn to go ice fishing with my fiance and his mom. My little bro was going to go, but he was sick, so didn't. It was really windy and cold and with Paul's Vexilar and AquaVue toys, we were able to see there were no fish swimming in the 5 holes we dug. There were 3 others fishing and they weren't catching anything, so we left and came home. We had to stop and get Paul a new pair of Carhardt Coveralls though, because he gained a bit of weight in the last year. We'll both be working on loosing before the wedding. I took a nice long nap when we got home. Then I watched the Rose Bowl Parade to see my SDSU PRIDE of the Dakotas Marching Band in the parade. I was in the PRIDE when I was at State, so I'm a big supporter of the band. I missed out on the 2003 appearance in the Rose Bowl parade because I graduated in December. We played at the Packers game, Fourth of July Bicentennial of DC parade, and numerous other big events while in college. Both my best friends/bridesmaids were in the PRIDE with me.
Since 2008 is going to be my year... I started my quilting on a good note. I prepped all the fabric for my bridesmaids quilts and cleaned my sewing room. With the wedding 5 short months away i have a lot to accomplish.
I am making lots of quilting items for the wedding!
~ 3 Lapsize YBR quilts for my bridesmaids and flowergirl
~ Landscape banner for the back of the sanctuary of the church
~ 2 Bridesmaids dresses and a flowergirl dress
~ 20 Quilted tablerunners for decorations, 2 done, 10 quilted need binding, and 10 need basted, quilted, and bound
~ Jacket to go over my dress if it gets chilly, it is SD after all
~ Mother in law quilt
It's going to be a very busy few months.
Well it's time to get ready to go back to work. Hope you all have a Happy New Year.
