As our cousins from WI will be arriving here tomorrow evening, there's a good chance that this blog will be quite silent from now until Monday. But do not despair, I/we'll be taking lots and lots of pictures to share with you after all the excitement is over with!
It will be so fun to have our relatives here, as we got to know the mother and one of the sons pretty well last Summer when they came to visit us and our farm for a few days. Now we get to see (and for some of us, meet for the first time) the rest of the family.
This has been a busy and wet day. Busy in the kitchen (chocolate chips cookies, banana bread, bread sticks, and pancakes were made), and wet outside (we received another inch and 60 hundredths of rain this afternoon, on top of the 75+ hundredths inch that came down in the last couple days!) I wonder if we can mow the lawn tomorrow????
Guess what? I finished sewing my dress today! :) Just looking at the dress, it doesn't seem like it should have taken so long to do, but working on it a little here and a little there amounted to a lot of little sewing times which seemed to drag out forever, so I'm so glad that it is now finished, just in time to wear to Prairie Days! PTL!
A closer look at the top design (which, I think, took longer to design than to sew!) :
...and the bottom quilted strip and ruffle:
So, until we meet again, may God be with you and bless you greatly!
