3 Cheers for JoAnn!


Hip Hip, Hooray! Hip Hip, Hooray! Hip Hip, Hooray!

Remember a couple weeks ago, when I said I might just go ahead and order that pretty lace from JoAnn Fabrics & see what happens? Well, I did. I ordered it on the 8th and it came yesterday. I'm really impressed with ol' JoAnn's. I was a little unsure as I couldn't see the whole design of the embroidery. But when I went in to get the fabric last night I was very happy indeed. Here it is photographed over a wrinkly old sheet.
I know, it's kind of a bad photo, but you get the idea, right? I'm so happy I decided to get this one. My next step will be to find a nice solid to go under this lace. Maybe this weekend on my trip to Seattle. Now that I've got this lace, I'm super excited about making my dress!

That lace is gorgeous! I actually think it's beautiful over the sheet. A pale grey wedding dress with all that lace! Snazzy!

It's not the color for me, that's for sure! I'm way to pale.
