A Little Stitching

love to sew stitchery in blue thread
Alie and her cake
decorated table at Alie's shower
There isn't much sewing going on lately in my house, but I did finish this cute stitchery that I received from May Britt in her polka dot exchange package. The fabric had the design printed on it so it was ready to go. I'm not sure if I will frame it or use it in a bag, but I sure enjoyed doing the stitching while watching the Tiger ballgames.

Last Saturday, Connie, Lori, Judy and I (the Aunts) gave a bridal shower for our niece, Alie. She and Andy will be married in August. Alie's colors are hot pink and orange which was fun to use in our decorating. We had gerbera daisies in the chosen colors for the tables and they became the prizes.

I love that color combo. One day I'm going to make an Orange colored quilt but that has nothing to do with this wonderful photo of the bride to be. She's so beautiful!!! ...and of course your stitchery. Very cuteamous and I like how you put your glasses in the photo because, well, that's most of us isn't it? ...but I'm wondering where are Annie and Jasper?
