The beautiful bride even wore the veil I made for Elaine's wedding, which was a sweet surprise. It was a lovely, classic wedding and we enjoyed all the special touches the couple planned and the nice reception with lots of music and dancing. Son Nick was at a different wedding at the exact same time, as his girlfriend's brother got married to his longtime love. But Nick didn't stay out too late, since Saturday's big event was focused on him and required a moving van.
Mini checked out the tires on the moving van.
Doesn't that label on the left pretty much describe the contents of most moving boxes? (on a side note, I'm proud my son knows plural from possessive in his labeling!)
And here are Nick's new digs, a small guest house tucked into the hill of our longtime friend's property. I showed his spectacular view a few weeks ago, here. With Erica's help on spider/web destruction patrol, and about a hundred trips up and down the steep stairs, the four of us had Nick mostly set up in just a few hours. This is the first time he has lived completely alone and he's looking forward to the experience.
Today I turned a shower curtain into two window coverings for Nick's new place. Then I worked on the last of the Jewel Box blocks so I can finally get this off my floor:
My boss, for whom this quilt is intended, liked the off center layout, so I'm keeping that. However, I may take the last two rows on the right and move them to the opposite side, since I want that purple center to be the "heart" of the quilt. I'll get these rows all stacked and pinned and move on to the final project of the weekend, putting the binding on my brother's coffee themed quilt. I'll be heading back with Erica to Arizona in a few days and delivering the quilt in person. Busy busy busy!
