Weekend Celebration

Very little stitching has been happening of late. Our highly anticipated weekend of the summer is now just a memory. We’re grateful that it happened, given all the twists and turns it took as a result of COVID.

On Friday evening, our daughter got married. It was a beautiful outdoor wedding and the weather couldn’t have been more perfect. The ceremony lasted about 30 minutes; a cocktail hour followed and then a sit-down dinner. The guest list was significantly less than originally planned, but we still had 100 people join us for the celebration. Another 300 watched the ceremony via live stream (what would we do without modern technology?) It was a perfect afternoon and evening!

I don’t have many pictures; the mother of the bride was too busy visiting with guests!






They are off on their honeymoon now and I continue to enjoy the bouquet; it smells wonderful.


We are also watching their puppy Nala!
