Menu for 5/29/15-6/4/15
Well, Dad's wedding was just beautiful! I love this shot of the two of them walking out onto the deck because it captures CJ's personality so perfectly.
Admiral looked all fancy in a trilby hat and CJ looked beautiful. The inn in Townsend where they held the wedding was charming. The cake, oh man the cake was awesome! A beautiful carrot cake with fluffy cream cheese frosting that looked like a cloud, and it was delicious, which is something you rarely get from a wedding cake.
Bailey was adorable as always in her little Easter dress. The photo is a little blurry but you can see she is having a blast.
This is where she spent the ceremony, in Senator's lap. She did have her own seat but about five minutes in she banged her elbow and started to cry so she crawled up on Senator instead.
We got a few more good ones with my brother's fiance.
One with Senator, and one with me.
I did finally finish their wedding gift, and it turned out just the way I had hoped. I had to lay it out on Bailey's bed to get a good picture of it. It's a nice, big, warm, cozy throw blanket for their great room. It even matches their new couch. I still have two more crochet projects that I'm working on but as for now I'm caught up and maybe even a bit ahead of schedule which is a huge relief. After all of these projects with a deadline I'm dying to do something just for myself so I'm starting another project for myself. It's just a small project but it will get my mind off of deadlines long enough to relax a bit.
For those who are curious, I used a modified version of this pattern for Dad and CJ's throw. I used a smaller hook (J), only 1 strand of yarn at a time, extended the width, skipped the transition rows between color stripes, and extended the color stripes to the length that each skein of yarn would allow. I used Caron Simply Soft yarn in black, white, and grey heather.
