I have been doing lots of sewing, also. I will update the blog with photos of the sewing projects later since blogger is not cooperating with allowing me to move the photos as I wish within this post. I made some curtain panels to cover shelving units in Em's Kindergarten classroom. Next project was to sew a bunch of bean bags. Those are finished. Now, I am sewing drawstring bags for another Kindergarten teacher and Em to use for holding some reading curriculum items. The other teacher provided a stack of fabric in cute prints and I am providing the sewing. So far, I have 10 of those bags sewn.

The wedding was FABULOUS! The bride was gorgeous, the groom handsome, and even the weather ended up cooperating for outdoor photos after the ceremony. The venue (McCamly Plaza Hotel in Battle Creek) was wonderful. We had so much fun!

This is not a fancy hat and scarf set, but rather a very serviceable set. Double strand of worsted weight yarn makes it nice and thick to keep out the cold winter winds.

Here is a photo of the barn in progress. No work crew last weekend as there were other things going on in their lives.

I have a quick-knit scarf on the needles. This is the Peppermint Special Olympics Scarf. You can find the pattern here: http://suzies-yarnie-stuff.blogspot.com/2010/03/peppermint-special-olympics-scarf.html . I will probably send this one to the person collecting the scarves for Special Olympics after I have a chance to show it at my knitting guild meeting. This would be a good scarf for the Salvation Army's homeless ministry. It is a warm and serviceable item.
More updating to follow. I still have the same pair of socks on the needles and have made no progress on those, but hope to get back knitting on them SOON.

I am also knitting a baby washcloth, using "I Love This Cotton" from Hobby Lobby. It is sooooooo soft. This one is #5, Linked Hearts, from the Leisure Art's leaflet - Dishcloths From The Heart.That's it from here. Back to my knitting and Olympics watching.

On Friday evening, I met the Bride and Maid of Honor at the bridal salon to see THE wedding gown. On the hanger, the dress is lovely, but on the Bride-to-Be, it is amazing!!! What a beautiful bride. They have also selected the dresses for the attendants and they are lovely.
I took the FOB (Father of the Bride) to the tux store for his fitting one evening last week. The Groom took his attendants, also.
Next Sunday we will attend another Bridal Expo, but this time it is in the same city as the wedding will be. We hope to find vendors for a few remaining details that need to be closer to the ceremony/reception site.
Things are moving along nicely toward a July wedding.
Knit content in the next post, hopefully. Tax season has significantly cut into my knitting time.
