It's All in the Details

These 4 daughters of mine. The've been bitten or the genes are just strong.  We all have that creative energy that drives us in one way or another.  For some it is the home, others the wardrobe.  Jobs are given attention or the garden is flourishing.  Each of us expresses it in a different way, but when it comes to big events...all bets are off!

This youngest daughter must have inherited the gene in every area of her life.  Oh My Goodness!  The details.  It is no secret there is a wedding in 137 days.  We are not counting. It is no secret either that I love planning a party and making little things a special.  I'm doomed this time.

My sewing room has taken on a life of its own.  It is a disaster to say the least, but it is filled with projects for this wedding.  I was working full time when the older girls married and the details were given over to others.  This wedding it's all on me.

There are 4 flower girls dresses to complete and sashes to monogram.  The shirts for the bridesmaids are hanging and ready for their own design when the bride decides.  And then those napkins..... it started out as a simple suggestion to appease the " I'm not renting 200 chargers at $12 a piece" rant.  Maybe the chargers would have been a better idea.  These napkins will grace the head table of 34 and then the new couple will have a beautiful set for their home.  The design chosen though has a color change and means that every single napkin has to go through a re-threading of the machine.

I'm really not complaining.  I love being a part of making their dreams come true. But last night I did have to ask my sweet youngest to be a little more aware of others.  We all have those moments you know:)))


  1. yep, we do all have those moments! lots of work! God bless you!

  2. l am happy to have a sewing room since my daughter was married in January. Love the monogrammed napkins...I had to look and see if they were handsewn...I have a story to tell here!

  3. Oh my, you have an awful lot sewing to get done. Those monogrammed napkins are beautiful. I would love to make a set for myself.
