It’s been a very busy couple of weeks! First I was distracted getting ready for Lightning in a Bottle, and now I’m heading to Atlanta for my wonderful Grandma’s funeral. Her death was very unexpected and has had all of us reeling, but I’m excited to see my family again.
Greatest family photo ever? It was taken in Germany; that’s my dad on the right. My grandma was pregnant at the time and made her maternity outfit. I love the matching white accessories! 60s elegance!
I’ve been working on lots of projects, but haven’t really documented them in all the confusion. Except for this ongoing task:
I’m using about 9 yards of this gorgeous Indian mirror trim in our wedding clothes. but I’m not 100% confident in the stitches used to hold those beads on. So I’ve been re-stitching every hanging mirror, one by one. They are so secure now that I won’t have to worry at all about any beads dropping and ruining our wedding!
I’ve got about 6 yards complete, and am looking forward to actually sewing it onto the garments!
