Rose Colored Glasses & A Little Time

Sunglasses are in my future...

Tomorrow is another Bridal Shower for Jillian. The theme is tropical... for their honeymoon.
We are all suppose to bring sunglasses that we have decorated so that they can be auctioned off.
The money goes towards the honeymoon fund.
I was thinking pretty elaborate thoughts when faced with this challenge, but after being further informed...
it looks like I can just get by with sunglasses and a Lei that I can attach to the arms so that the glasses can hang down when you aren't wearing them. I am relieved to know that they don't have to be REALLY decorated... because who would want to bid for them?
I am new to these events... so I will let you know how it goes!

I know that this just looks like a pile of netting... but soon it will be transformed into a beautiful veil.
(I could be wearing those "rose-colored" sunglasses right now)LOL
I hope to finish it up so that the bride to be can take it home with her. I just need to gather it up, put it on a comb and add 50 little hand sewn pearls... no problem... ?
 
Guess what pattern I got my hot little hands on? I had emailed Kay and she graciously let me purchase a copy as soon as it came in from the printer... you will be able to see them in her booth at Market.
The one on the right will replace idea #1 on the left.
Fabrics? Soon to be determined.
I do know that it will be something green. Then I will need a little shrug... and a cute little pair of gloves.
This will not be attempted this weekend!
This is pinned and waiting for some attention.
We'll see what 48 hours can bring!
Have a great weekend!

The sunglasses are a great idea, the veil will be beautiful I'm sure, and the quilt is lovely, and the dresses are very pretty.
