And We're Back!

May I present Mr. and Mrs. Mills ~

And now my family is a family of 5. Things went well Friday night. No one fell, no one got sick, the preacher showed up, and no one objected! ;)
Here are a few shots from the wedding ~

 Still not sure how to describe the wedding. My words have left me. How can you be so happy for your little girl and so sad to see her all grown up at the same time? Bittersweet?

Today, after all the bridal things are sent to the new couple's house and my house returns to normal - let the stitching begin!

Don't think I haven't been stitching - I have and there are a few new finishes to show. Plus a road trip to plan...yep, next spring I'm taking my mom with me and we are headed to Minneapolis, Fargo, and then St Louis, back through Illinois and home. Seems there are some stitching shops I want to visit and I'm saving stash money already!

See you soon ~

Cheers to the Happy Family. I guess I have been away too coz I thought you were doing this at home... everything looks wonderful and very enjoyable, especially the bride and groom.
Another Cheers to getting back into the stitching.

Congratulations to the happy couple! Yes, it is a bittersweet thing when the kiddos grow up and sometimes away. Looks like it was a great wedding! Congrats to you, too, for getting everything done that you needed to get done! Look forward to seeing your stitches! You were missed! Hugs!
