An anniversary, and a guest tutorial

July 7th marks 31 years of marriage. We toasted ourselves at a local restaurant happy hour. I have very few scanned pictures, but found this one, featuring my two favorite flowers, Daisy's and roses. My dress was made of "Quiana" a fancy name for polyester. Wash and wear, I even cut it down to make a cocktail dress that I wore some years later. I am saving the lace coverup for my daughter, on the very rare chance she will want anything I wore on her special day. Note the "mother nature" look to my very long hair, so practical!

We have so much to be thankful for, I will save my long stories for another day, I am remiss in posting recently about my guest blogging, more below.

I borrowed this text from SewMama's web site, enter and win!

"Join us for Sewing Machine Month! Enter to win this week’s prize package from our Sewing Machine Month sponsor: Husqvarna/Viking. Comment on any post this week for your chance to win the General Sewing Package (over $150 retail value), or you might win one of four $20 gift certificates to Sew,Mama,Sew!."

I am so excited to see my guest tutorial and link to my site
on SewMamaSew blog and shop. I just received a fabric gift from them to add to my stash. 1/2 yard each of Jennifer Paganelli's Dance With Me, a beautiful delicate pattern, and the much bolder, Amy Butler Kalidoscope Dots Leaf ~ Daisy Chain.
Here is the link to my contribution and others on buttonholes...

I hope you will check out their site, it seems very organized and borrow heavily from it's blog readers. I love all the great tutorials and a great resource for fabric I can't find in local stores. It is so exciting to have some of my favorite blogger/designers fabric in my hands, and to see the quality up close. Feel free to suggest what I could do with a 1/2 yard, embellish something.

A few more notes, we spent a wonderful weekend on the boat in Sandusky, 4th of July was cloudy but still memorable, and the sunsets that followed a day of clouds were supreme. Hubby seems happy... Enjoy.
