here comes the bride!

Last weekend we enjoyed a wonderful family celebration at the wedding of my niece, Nora, and Shane.  They planned a very special event for all of their friends and family members.  

Nora is the daughter of my brother and sister-in-law, and those 2 have developed some skills with wood and paint.  This is the wedding cake topper that was custom carved and painted for the happy couple---

A perfect personal touch!

Before the actual dancing got started, Ian had a good time scooting around that nice big dance floor and making friends with some little girls that were struttin' their stuff!  Ian doesn't walk on his own yet, and doesn't like to crawl very much.  He has adapted what I call "the boot scoot" to get around by the seat of his pants!  He scooted circles around everyone else!

Below is the quilt that my mom made for Nora and Shane.  She used a design that I made for her and we picked out fabric at Bear Patch Quilting Co. sometime last year.  The center and borders are a beautiful large paisley print.  I know Nora likes earth tones in her decor, so this should fit in just right.  She hand quilted it during the winter, she said that she listened to 40 books on tape during her quilting time!  Truly a labor of love.

I hope the happy couple enjoys many years of warmth and comfort beneath their special quilt!
