Wind up Wednesday

Today I had intended on finishing my ostrich round robin. I have the binding partially stitched on. I was hand stitching the binding down when my daughter called. She is trying to get plans finalized on her June wedding. She still has alot to arrange. For example, her dress.

We have been out a couple times shopping for "the dress" this past week. We started at a store that we knew little about. They had a few dresses that we liked, but they did not have much in my daughter's size. It was so hard to tell what would work and what wouldn't in all of those too-small gowns. After the first store we were all ready to stop for a drink (or two). So we tried again another day. The second store had nothing that was suitable, and by the time we left we were getting discouraged. But today we took off at the spur of the moment for a bridal shop about an hour away.

This shop was worth the drive. They had a great selection and the service was wonderful. We showed up without an appointment and they still went out of their way to help us. In fact, after trying on several dresses, we got it narrowed down to a couple dresses. And before we left, my daughter had made her decision! :) In fact, we took it home with us.

Nope, in case you were wondering, this is not "the one".

So, while I had intended this day to be my chance to wind up a project, instead it was a day to wind up a loose end in my daughter's wedding preparations. She has her dress! That is a much more important accomplishment. And I am determined to finish that binding tonight too.

Wow, that's great progress! I am really looking forward to seeing Annie in her wedding dress. Of course, I cherish the wedding dress you made for me, but being able to find "the one" that is already made and that even fits is really lucky!
