April Showers!

I attended a bridal shower for Jill, my soon to be DIL this weekend.
It was put on by her Aunt and Cousin. Pot holders were made by Jill's cousin, Marie for each place setting. They were made from their grandmother's fabric stash. (Grandma passed away a few years ago). I thought it was a nice touch.


It was very fun for me and it looks like Jillian was having fun too!

It was a nice getaway over to Livermore but we weren't able to escape and run over to In Between Stitches this trip!
On another subject:
I have a little secret... I am trying to think of something clever for another celebration coming up... there is going to be a blogiversary
very soon. Stay tuned!
I wouldn't want you to miss out!

I do believe that blogland has more people who "tease" that any place I know of!!!
Glad you had fun at the party--and yes the grandmother pot holders were a nice touch!!
Hugs, Di

Looks and sounds like a fun shower! I agree that the potholders were a really fun idea!

Oh thanks my eyes look really weird in that photo. I look like a crazy rather than having a good time.=)

Those potholders were a clever idea, and a great deal of work!! Did folks seem to appreciate the gesture?

I had a friend tell me she didn't understand why I sewed, especially since you can buy my stuff in a store, for next to nothing.....non believers, they wear me out.

I just wanted to say HEY NEIGHBOR! I love In Between Stitches. I'm going over there tomorrow to get some fabric for a couple of fat quarter swaps I'm in!!! Nice to hear that someone else enjoys that shop as much as I do!!! So greetings from Tracy CA
