Congratulations to Mike and Deanna!

Yes, I know, I have been missing in action for awhile now. Not that I had that much to do for my son's wedding, really, but oh the anticipation! We went to the mountains above Lake Isabella, CA., where I raised my kids, and my son and his beautiful fiance, Deanna were married under the pine trees on a beautiful, even if a little bit cold, day! Here is the happy couple right after the ceremony. We are so happy for them. It has been a long road to each other, being separated for 10 years before they found one another again, and I don't think anyone had a happier face that day than the two of them!!

I loved their cake, it was so darn cute. Her colors were black and white and the cake was adorable, and very good!!!

The wedding party together, down the hill. It was so much fun for my husband and I to see and visit all the kids that use to hang out at our home when they were young, and raz some of them about raiding the refrigerator in those days!! Deanna was so beautiful, and oh that dress!!

My husband and I with Mike.

Their flower girl was so adorable!!! And that cute little black and white dress!

My twin granddaughters were enjoying the day.

I really didn't want to come home, we had such a wonderful time. But I did get SOME work done before the wedding! Here is a quilt for Benartex that I just finished.

I've been keeping a secret for a long time! But the secret is out!! This quilt on the longarm will be featured as the store quilt for Quiltique in Henderson NV for the fall issue of Quilt Sampler magazine!!! I am so excited!!!

The pattern will be available in the magazine, but I must warn you, it's not a beginners pattern!!! I did my best on the quilting....and I'll let you know when the issue comes out again!!
Until then,
keep quilting!

Hi Diane,
congratulations to the happy couple & the groom's mom! ;o)
It seems that the wedding was terrific. What a beautiful idea to have a b/w theme....!
Oh, and your quilts are awesome (I think I've said that before) ~ I love the pink on your longarm...the quilting makes it sparkle {I wish I could quilt like you *sigh*)
Hugs, Julia

Congrats to Quiltique too on the sampler. Love the quilt.
