After the storm, life is returning to normal for many of us. My niece, Sarah Beth, will be married in June. To celebrate the upcoming event, I hosted, along with my cousin, Lora, a bridal shower at my home. We decided on a very traditional, southern style, girlie party with all the fixings. Mom and I polished up the silver and washed the crystal. I washed and ironed the linens. Lora and I made made yummy finger foods and champagne punch. I trimmed the blooms and leaves from the southern magnolias and dogwoods for decorations. It was so much fun to do something special and girlie pretty. It was a such a sunny, happy day.
Lots of lovely ladies dropped in bearing gifts for the bride to be.

And of course quilts were involved. The bride and groom were happy to finally get their hands on this quilt that I had custom made for them.
I do think it was a huge success. And now we are all looking forward to the wedding.
And while I wait, I guess I will fill part of the time getting back into my studio and getting my hands on some fabric.
