Bridesmaid Dress done and Manly Man topped!

I finally did it! I got the bridesmaid dress done and it looks really good, if I do say so myself! : ) Although I cut it out and started sewing a bit on it Saturday, I didn't have time to touch it again at all until Wednesday, and then only for an hour. So, Thursday came and I had a sewing marathon, in between other sundry things... Then finally, at 11:20 pm, I finished it! The wedding was today and so rather than take a picture of the finished dress on a hanger, I took the picture of it on the lovely bridesmaid! (BTW, the tall handsome fella in the back is my second oldest son : )

And then today I finished the Manly Man quilt top!

So now, somewhere in between the 2 trillion dress rehearsals for the play my three youngest kids are in, and their 3 performances next week, and all the other end-of-the-school-year stuff that happens all in May, I will go see if I can find some fabric to buy for the backing and get this done! I’m down to 1 week and 6 days before my oldest son comes home from his mission! Yay! Besides needing to get this quilt done before he gets home, I also have to get him a bed to put it on! Yikes! Yes, it will be a busy couple of weeks!


May Finishes
