It is so dreary here! We had heavy rain and storms yesterday. For some reason I thought I would get it up and it would be sunny and beautiful. Yeah, no such luck.

I finished the veil. I'm so excited at how nice it turned out. What a racket wedding stuff is!!! I stopped at David's Bridals to look at veils last week to try to see how they did the jewels and beads. $129 - $199 for veils. There was all of about $6 worth of material in the one that I made. Not trying to be a snob, but I really think that the one I made was a lot nicer than the ones I saw. Keep teasing the hubby that I'm going into the veil making business now. There will be a picture posted on Sunday of my veil on the brides head. :-) There will be pictures of Grace too in her flower girl dress as well.

Just have to share a shot of Buddy. He got his summer haircut. I think he will be much cooler once the HOT and humidity finally kick in. Everyone asks if the poodle that he came from was champagne colored. We have no idea, Santa didn't leave that information for us. My guess is yes, since he looks so much like a poodle with the short hair and it is very much carmel colored.

I've been feeling challenged by the embroidery. I'm finally picking up some jobs and realizing that self learning isn't all that it's cracked up to be. Once I get this all figured out, I've decided that I'm going to start holding classes to pass on the mistakes I've learned. It's crazy, I can go take classes on quilting, but there really aren't any machine embroidery classes. Don't get me wrong, there are classes, but they are geared for the smaller machines. There aren't any for my mack daddy machine. The challenge for last night was trying to figure out how to get bags centered on the new Quick Snap hoops that I got. Everything is off to the right. I'm on a group on Yahoo, so I spent some time sifting through their information. I get the concepts of what I need to do, just can't seem to pull it off. I guess I will spend some more time at lunch today perusing the documents and Internet for any kind of help I can find. One of these days the light bulb will go on and I will get it all figured out. Until then, I'm feeling challenged, and not in such a good way.

Well, I guess I best get headed to work. I would so much rather head to the Girl Cave and sew. Darn those bills. :-)

Have a great day!
