Getting Ready for Vacation and Wedding Activities Start

I'm busy getting ready for vacation. This Friday morning I leave to visit my parents for a little over 2 weeks. This will be an emotional trip for me. My parents are moving out of the house they have lived in for nearly 50 years. Lots of memories and stuff to work through while I am there. The last day Bruce and I are there is the day they have rented the moving van. They are only moving about a mile away into some senior apartments.

I got my sewing table this past weekend. We picked it up Saturday morning, but we had to work in the office so I didn't get to open it and put it together until dinner time. I've been able to sneak a few moments of using it and so far I like it. I've been sewing on a bistro height table since I started quilting and it's really different using a regular size table. I put it perpendicular to the windows so I can work on 3 sides of it and there will be room for Tasha when she wants to come over and quilt with me.

The wedding activities for Geoffrey and Tasha started this past weekend. Tasha had her bridal shower. It was a Victorian Tea Gathering. All of us dressed up in pretty dresses and hats and had a grand time. Here is a picture of Tasha, her sister and some of her cousins. Tasha is sitting. Her sister is the one with the black boa.

I have reserved a city park for the groom's rehearsal dinner. We are going to have a BBQ and chili picnic with a small fireworks display afterwards. I won the fireworks at a charity auction and we are excited to add this fun touch to the weekend. We have also made the final payment on the honeymoon for the couple. They want to go to Disney World so that is where we are sending them.

It's time to head for work. Only 3 more days until vacation! Yay!!

The photo of your new sewing table is not showing, would like to see how it looks in your new sewing area.

I've been looking for a sewing table like yours. Can you tell me where you got it?
I think your new studio is beautiful.
