Let me show you the bird and the bride!

 First, I want to thank everyone for their kind comments and notes on my last post.  I have never had that many comments on one post in my year of blogging!!  It was so exciting.  I got tons of comments on my Long Dog Sampler, Beautie Spot.  The Dodo was much more painful than he should have been but he was completed last night.  Now I am on to the final large motif and some finishing touches including the boarder, initials, dates and spangles. 

I did not get much stitching done over the weekend because of my oldest nieces wedding.  The bride was beautiful and the other picture has six of my older nieces and nephews.  It was an adult only reception.  I have seven more nieces and nephews not in the picture.  The three on the left were in the wedding party.  I loved the brown bridesmaid dresses.  We also had a baptism on Sunday for my neighbor's baby.   Anna was a real cutie in her white dress but I failed to get a picture of her.  Her gown was from the train of her mother's wedding dress. 

That is about as exciting as it gets around here.  I am almost done with my French knot Pig but I want to save that for another riveting post in the future.  Have a fabulous week! 


  1. Your niece is beautiful indeed! Congratulations to her and her new husband -- may they have many happy years together. Love the bird! I love Beauty Spotte!

  2. What a lovely family. And what a beautiful smile the bride has. Best wishes to your niece and congratulations to the groom.

  3. What a beautiful bride! Brown bridesmaids dresses--that sure is different but I really like it! The dodo bird looks great, too! :)

    Have a great Thanksgiving!
