The Bridal Shower !


This is what being a mom is all about. See that smiling young woman holding the bow bouquet. That's my daughter posing with her bridesmaids at her bridal shower held last Sunday. That's why I haven't had time to post about anything knitterly lately.

We had a wonderful time celebrating her upcoming marriage with food and presents. Marisa's two sweet friends are to the left and my two sweet nieces are to the right. It was an intimate gathering of family and friends. The tables were decorated with fresh flowers and favors. I cheated and ate pasta and two pieces of cake .

Knitting Progress:
In spite of all the craziness of planning the shower and taking care of my mom I did manage to work on some projects. Of course, I did finish John's wedding socks and gave them to him on the day of the shower so he ,too, could have a present to open. Forgive the poor lighting...

Lovely celebration! It's so good to get together for the joys in life.

I never would have thought of wedding socks. What a great idea. How can you not smile each time you wear them?
