My packing has been going slowly - I still have my quilting group on Wednesday, and after that, I can sort the tools and begin some serious packing.
In the mean time, I've been doing some planning for the wedding outfit that I'll be making for my future daughter-in-law when we return north. Her sister is an author and artist, and they sat down and sketched the dress, with front and back views. Instead of a veil, she wants to wear a fingertip length cape with a hood.
When we were heading south, we stopped at Mary Jo's Cloth Shop in Gastonia NC, where I picked up several samples of laces to send for the bride's approval. Some were more sheer than others, and she picked my favourite! Now I have to figure out how to turn it into a cape with a hood. I've done some internet research, and I'm off to Joann's to buy some bridal tulle to play with. I want to have something to test fit, when I take her measurements for her dress. The dress design is very simple and classic - it will suit her beautifully! I can hardly wait to get started.
