Success!!!

At last I have the joy of reporting that the bridesmaids dresses are finished!!!! :o) Momma and I have have spent the past several days buckled down in the sewing room desperately trying to get these dresses done before the weekend.

"Finished Product"
The picture shows the dresses much much greyer than the fabric really is. It's a beautiful sage green that 'shimmers'...

This weekend will mark two weeks before Trevor and Thelma's wedding which is why we wanted the dresses done by then (we are cutting it close as it is!). There is still a bit of hand work to do; several hems need to be put in, a ribbon put where the skirt and bodice meet, and a few hooks and eyes need to be placed, but these are things that can be done in the evenings while catching up on the days happenings with everyone.

What sweet relief and joy it is to have the major part of this project behind us! I cannot wait to see what everyone looks like in their dress...

"Planting Rose Bushes"
So what does Ashley have planned now that she has a little more free time these days? Gardening of course!!!! I have seeds started, seeds to plant, weeds to pull, and garden stuff to pull out of hibernation. What fun this shall be!

The window here beside the computer is open which is letting in a wonderful breeze... spring is officially here (never mind the fact that we received four inches of snow a little over a week ago) and several of the trees are beginning to bloom! The frogs have come back to life, the birds sing constantly and flit from tree to tree, the grass is greening up, and new life and hope is alive where ever you look! What a wonderful time of year!

Yeah!!! I am so happy for you and your Momma, Ashley! I am sure it feels so wonderful to have the dresses done (save for the bit of handwork) . . . they are just beautiful! You both did a great job on them. :)

Enjoy your beautiful weather and digging in the dirt! It sounds so very lovely there (especially considering the fact that it is 33 degrees here right now. :)
