One of my daughter's closest friends got married this weekend and my family was part of the wedding. Grayson was the ring bearer and I must say he did a fine job and looked so handsome in his little tuxedo.
My daughter was a bridesmaid and Sloaney was part of the audience. It was rainy and cool and I was so happy she had her pink "fur".
My son-in-law was also part of the wedding so it was a family affair. The bride was stunning and her colors were gorgeous.....browns, copper & cream. It was a fun way to end a holiday weekend.
When my son needs gifts I stop what I'm working on and sew for him. It just so happened that he needed several gifts this week. One is a baby gift for little Harper who will be born soon. I used my Cricut and cut her initial using a font called "Gesselle". It has a French look to it and I really like it for girls. I downloaded it from dafont.com Lots of free fonts there.
The ornament turned out so soft, girly and sweet.
My son has a co-worker moving soon and they are making her a basket of goodies. He asked for something to represent Louisiana so I did a fleur de lis on kitchen towels. The ruffle is a chevron patterned fabric that we used for Grayson's birthday shirt.
His office is also adopting a family for Christmas. There are 6 children in the family. He wanted them to have personalized stockings. I searched several stores looking for stockings that were child-like and reasonably priced. They were no where to be found so we were about to decide on other gifts for the children. I walked into Lowe's not even thinking about the stockings and there they were. Cute and priced just right!
However, I just about gave up after monogramming the first one. Monogramming stockings is difficult because of the logistics and placement and having to use a water soluble stabilizer on top. I wouldn't have done them for just anyone but for my son to give to these children I would.
And more of the baby gift for Baby Harper. I wanted to keep everything pink and green. I love her name :)
Sweet Baby Harper
Well it's back to work tomorrow. I hope you have a great week! Christmas is just around the corner......love this time of the year!
