at last...

we have FINALLY gotten leaves glued on all the centerpiece candles. they look really good, so hopefully the adhesive sticks and they still look good ten months from now when we actually need them. now my concern about the arrangements is having enough large leaves to scatter around them and the tables. i've found a place that has fairly realistic looking ones that i may order if the need arises. Here is the final product of all that sticky work...

turns out our basement actually has better light for indoor photography than any other room in the house. who knew??

And all my books have finally arrived. I treated myself to several craft books using christmas giftcards/money and i can't wait to put them to use.

Last Minute Patchwork and Quilted Gifts - Joelle Hoverson and Anna Williams
Knitting Without Tears - Elizabeth Zimmerman
Handknit Holidays - Melanie Falick
The Complete Book of Sewing - DK Publishing

someday i will be done with wedding crafts and will actually be able to do other fun stuff. someday...
