My friend Helen, of Midget Gem Quilts told me to take care of myself after the wedding, that she found it "a bit flat". She was right. I was unprepared for how much of an emotional rollercoaster it would be, all rooted in supreme happiness for my 'baby', but poignancy and joy had a tug-of-war in my heart. There was some stress as well, with out of town family in town, some in our house, some not, but the entire wedding weekend went off without a glitch. It was perfection. Magical. Beautiful. Splendour abounded, and a splendid event from the rehearsal to the final goodbyes on Tuesday to departing family.
Dayna worked her fingers to the bone planning every single detail of the wedding, and although I knew about everything, and had helped with just a few items, seeing it all come together and flow and work and add to the ethereal quality to the entire event just took my breath away. I know I sound over-the-top gushing but every single person I talked to commented on it being the best wedding they'd ever been to and how wonderful and thoughtful every part of it was.
All right, on to what little I've managed to accomplish amidst all this wonder.
The top of my quilt for the November challenge (yup, late again) is finally done!
And here is the finished top, inside on the design wall, because the weather was frightful, rain and wind, oh my.
In between making the log cabin blocks, I'm now on the 13th and last row of my 150 Canadian Women quilt. You can see a bit of the top half of it behind the log cabin quilt flimsy. Once the 13th row is complete and the sashing added, I will sew the top half to the bottom half and... I will not have a finished flimsy, because there are a couple of borders to do yet. Oh well, slow and steady, right?
Fawn's quilt, which is on my Q3 List is also coming along slowly and steadily. Here's a sneak peek.
I should be back in a few days with a finish post on the log cabin quilt, which got its name Monday when Dayna showed up unannounced for a surprise visit. I'd figured I'd have the top done by supper, and could get the backing together...yet another interruption hindered that plan! I'll take that kind of interruption any day of the week, from my daughter, however. 😁
