It's a Good Thing

"It's a Good Thing." --Martha Stewart
Yes, it is!
Good Thing #1
Daughter #2's wedding gown is all finished. It is awesome! We picked it up last night from the seamstress. A friend of mine gave me the name of a woman in Garden Grove who can make a wedding gown from any picture! And even without a pattern! You see, my daughter couldn't find just the exact one she liked, so we bought our own fabric and had it made by this amazing, talented seamstress. I will post pictures of it after Dec. 15th. Remember...just in case my future son-in-law looks at this blog, I can't post any pictures yet! That would not be a good thing!

But here is the Purse Dog, modeling some of the lace fabric for you.

Good Thing #2
A fun package arrived in the mail.
Look what I found on Etsy.com. Check out this seller who is selling quilty things! I am so excited to put these vintage blocks together into a quilt...in my spare time. What is spare time?
And lastly, Good Thing #3

Yeah Vivian!

I got a phone call the other day from one of my customers to inform me that a quilt we did was accepted to the Road To California quilt show. Wow! Such an honor just to have a quilt accepted by the jury and displayed in that show! It's the largest quilt show in Southern California. Quilts are entered from all over the world. Wow! Here's a hint of the quilt for you to see. This is actually a view of the back where you can really see my quilting.

I love that infinity quilting though my DH thinks it looks like intestines (grin). It is absolutely one of my very favourite fillers.
