Busy Life With Beautiful Changes.....

Last month we had one of these............................

Our family dynamics are changing, as is to be expected.  I did not have to do much sewing for the wedding.  The girls' dresses were made by Charity's mum.  The tuxedos were rented.  My dress was my silk regency dress, and all the undergarments to go with it, that I made for wearing to the, Jane Austen Festival, Bath England, back in the fall of 2010.  My shawl I made for the wedding, using Lyla Messinger's Sensational Shawls Pattern .  It was made from a burnout silk fabric that had some lovely metallic thread in it.

My new daughter-in-law loves hats. :) :) :)  So, in honour of her love for hats, her mother and I wore hats.

I have several posts I'm trying to put together with various sewing projects from the past several months.  Maybe I can get a few done next week. :)

I hope everyone is having a productive summer.

Thank you ladies. We went from the high of this wedding, to the shock of my mum's death. Just trying to get my balance and breath. Will post soon.
