When we went off to see the Quilt of Belonging we stopped into a nice little quilt store in Surrey, Wineberries. It is a store that I haven't been to in a long time because it is about an hour or longer away from my house. Well -- I was quite excited to see they have quite a Dear Jane section. The woman who sells the Bernina sewing machines is a "Janiac" she brought out her workbook for us to look through. I never got her name but I think she also posts on the Dear Jane digest. So of course I bought some fabric - I also bought the two rulers - something I was thinking of getting anyway.
So I have started another Dear Jane Block. This one has been a bit of a challenge with the curved pieces. I use the freezer paper and iron it onto the fabric and then mark a sewing and cutting line and then sew them together by hand.
I should be doing wedding stuff! I have a huge list of things to do - but I am slowly working my way down the list. Jim keeps saying -"I don't recall you being so anxious about our wedding" I don't recall that either. I'm not sure why - but there seems to be alot more details with this wedding of Ben and Jessica. Maybe because I am the mother of the bride and I just want her to have everything work out the way she want it but yet I am not planning the actual way it should be?? Not sure. Plus they live in Calgary and are planning most of it from a distance and then they will arrive next week -- and it is only 2 weeks away now.
She had decided she wanted to have a three tiered tray of cupcakes instead of a wedding cake - so I am going to make Red Velvet cupcakes with cream cheese icing and a strawberry cut in half to look like a heart. Actually - I am making the cupcakes this week and then I will freeze them and I will make the icing next week - Thurs or Fri and then the two women I have hired to help set out food and stuff on the day of the wedding will ice them and put on the strawberries. I think it will look lovely. Anyway enough wedding stuff it just gets me going! I think I will go work on my Dear Jane and procrastinate a little bit more.
