Reality is starting to set in and it finally feels like the wedding is getting closer! No I'm not stressing out! I started stressing about a month ago one night when my mom, Paul, and his mom Leslie were all at the house. Leslie and my mom decided they would drink a beer every time I got stressed out about something for the wedding. I said you can't do that you'll both be alcholics! My mom said, well then shape up. Sooooo, so far I haven't really stressed yet, or my mom will say where's the beer and I just let it go.
I haven't really been anxious yet, but this week I had to make a few calls to ask people to help and to confirm details. I got a lot of things taken care of and I feel pretty good about what is left. The church banner top is done and we are going to baste it on Fri. I'm hoping to get it quilted this weekend. We are also planning on completing the invitations and getting them mailed out this next week. We're at 7 weeks to the wedding!
Yesterday I received our first shower gift from a friend who won't be able to make the shower as she is having surgery. It was so fun to open it! Tomorrow night is my bridal shower up here. Two of my friends who are co-workers are throwing the shower. I really had good intentions of having a signiture quilt done, but that didn't happen and it doesn't look like it's going to get done before the wedding, unless I get really bored, so everyone will have to sign the boring book. What kind of quilter doesn't have a signiture quilt for her own wedding. I seriously am considering just getting a big piece of white fabric and having everyone sign it and making a wall hanging later and using it as the back. Who knows what will happen by then.
I'll leave you with pictures of my hair done on Saturday as practice for the wedding. We went and tried on veils and it was snowing/raining/ windy, so it went flat in a hurry. I really wanted a tiara, but after trying them on, I didn't find anything I liked or was willing to pay for. I do like the length of the veil though, so I'll be working on making that too.
