Work in Progress

Slowly but surely I'm making progress on my wedding plans. I had hoped to get my invitations in the mail about two weeks ago, but well, not so much. This has been an incredibly busy month for us so I should just be glad I even got some invites made. This is how many are ready to go in the mail at this point. I still need to make the card that gives all the info about the weather, bringing kids, transportation etc., but I have everything else printed and/or ready to assemble. If you'd like to see what the whole invitation looks like, click here.


I have a very long list of sewing projects for my wedding and this weekend I got a chance to start on one of them. I'll be making these chair covers for about half of the chairs for the reception, that should be 35 or so. I've got them all cut and the side seams sewn. I'll be serging the bottom edge, then folding it up to hem. Maybe after the wedding I'll turn the fabric into placemats & zipper pouches. haha Maybe after the wedding I won't like sewing anymore.


I also found some new fabric for the neck ties. Not that I'm a last minute kind of person, really I'm not. I had chosen and purchased a reddy/brown print, but I like this better. Now that I know what the bridesmaids are wearing, I just think this will look better. It's an outdoor, country setting so the plaid will fit right in.


Between wedding projects, I'm still finding time to manage the Etsy shops. phew! I'll be adding Miss Mary to Monkey Travel Club later today.

You may just want to take a vacation from your sewing machine with all this work! Holly Batman! But everything looks extremely beautiful, especially with invitations. They really set a tone for the whole event.

Wow Ginny--I am getting very excited about your wedding! lol If I lived closer, I would totally give you a hand with all that sewing (you are an ambitious girl for sure!)

And I just have to say "oh no you didn't!" on adding a little flower to Miss Mary's cap! Too too too cute.

Smiles, Karen
